The Hotel Alexandra was built at the end of the 19th century; first opening their doors to the public in 1875. Despite its beautiful and distinctive look, the hotel began to fail in the first half of the 1900s and has been permanently vacant since the early 1990s. The most recent owner, The Church of Scientology, bought the building in 2008, hoping to convert it into a local headquarters, but the property’s poor condition and lack of funds ultimately led the church to sell.
New owners have proposed bringing the historic building back to life as a boutique hotel. Their plans include making this into a twelve story building, creating space for a ground floor restaurant and café and a rooftop level bar/restaurant. They will also look to restore the hotel’s facade. Want to hear more about the developers’ plans? Attend the Wednesday, January 9th public meeting. You can also submit your comments here.
