With so much to explore in the rapidly growing Rocket City, additional upscale accommodations were necessary for an influx of visitors. Situated on the courthouse square in downtown Huntsville, the seven-story, 117-room 106 Jefferson lifestyle hotel was constructed by Robins & Morton within walking distance of several local attractions, including the Von Braun Center.
From the beginning of the project, site logistics were daunting. Located in a downtown, urban area, the south and north sides of the building’s footprint had anywhere from eight inches to two feet of clearance between other structures. Planning for material delivery was a balancing act to keep work progressing while maintaining an uncluttered site.
The team also experienced challenges with supply chain issues. In the midst of the COVID pandemic, the design was changing to accommodate material, fixture and finish delays all while the team was actively building. Without contending with a pandemic, the schedule was aggressive, but despite looming deadlines the team persevered, problem solving at every turn.
Today, 106 Jefferson provides guest with a relaxing environment with fantastic views. The main level displays a high-end street level retail restaurant and bar, called The Revivalist, with terrace dining as an option. The lobby, lounge and fitness center along with 2,500 square feet of flexible meeting space, including the Century Ballroom, are also located on the main level. The rooftop features Baker & Able, a rooftop bar and lounge.
