The Hilton Hotel Expansion and Renovation project included the new construction of a six-story, 150 guest room tower located above the existing parking structure. This expansion accommodates large groups and special events, and provides additional availability for leisure and business guests.
This project was the first vertical tower in North America with both germination and kilning capabilities. It is unique because all processes are in one building rather than having them separated into multiple buildings. It is also one of the first round malt house facilities in the country. The facility uses 300 tons of barley each day to produce malt for the brewing industry.
