Broadview Hotel

More details emerge about Broadview Hotel renovation

Streetcar Developments is pushing forward with its plans to convert the aging Broadview Hotel, once home to the notorious Jilly's strip club, into a boutique inn and restaurant in the same vein as the Gladstone and the Drake.

The developer will meet the city's Committee of Adjustment today for approval on numerous changes it has planned for the building, which it acquired back in May. We've already covered some of the structural work in the plans, but a bit more information regarding the hotel itself has been leaked to the Star.

The proposed renovations would double the existing buildings floor space, and include 57 hotel rooms, a rooftop bar and event space, and a first floor restaurant. An executive suite is still planned for the corner tower, as we reported back in September.

Streetcar reps have consulted with Christina Zeidler of the Gladstone about their plans, which is a promising sign. The Broadview Hotel poses a huge opportunity to add a marquee historical attraction to Riverside, and it looks like Streetcar wants to do it right.
