Offit Kurman Attorney David Severn Represents Plamondon Hospitality Partners in $64 Million Downtown Hotel And Conference Center Project

php-logo-no-hotel-logos The Downtown Frederick Hotel Advisory Committee has recommended to the Mayor and Board of Aldermen of Frederick City its selection of Offit Kurman client Plamondon Hospitality Partners (PHP) to develop a full-service Marriott hotel and conference center in the heart of historic downtown. Valued at over $60 million, the project is on track to generate over a hundred jobs as well as millions in tax revenue and travel and tourism activity.

The hotel and conference center is planned to occupy the site of the former Frederick News-Post building on E. Patrick Street. Incorporating the landmark Frederick Railroad Building, the project aims to offer retail opportunities and amenities such as dining and conference space along Carroll Street, while preserving an architectural legacy steeped in Colonial America and the Civil War.

Local zoning and real estate attorney David Severn serves on the PHP development and consulting team as land development counsel. His firm, Severn & Kresslein, PA, joined Offit Kurman in August of this year.
