Three groups of developers have pitched plans for converting the 72-year-old Family Court building at 18th and Vine Streets into a luxury hotel, raising expectations for another big investment in an area undergoing major change.
In plans submitted to the city Wednesday, each group was aligned with a hotel operator. They are:
Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, teaming up with Logan Square Holdings, a limited partnership that counts the Goldenberg Group of Philadelphia among its five investors.
Starwood Hotels & Resorts, working with Philadelphia’s Dranoff Properties and HRI Properties of New Orleans.
Kimpton Hotels, aligned with P&A Associates of Philadelphia and the Peebles Corp. of New York City.
