I’m a visual guy, so whenever I can, I take ideas and turn them into pictures. Pictures give me something I can turn over, twist, and see how they fit in the real world. With that in mind I’ve taken photos of hotel conference centers in other cities and tried to bring them here to Kent to give me a visual image of what a Kent Hotel Conference Center would look like. See what you think.
As you’ll see, I used the intersection of S. Water Street and Haymaker Parkway for the site of the new hotel. PLEASE don’t take it to mean that is the location where it has to be, but it was the site identified by a hotel consultant back in 2000 as the ideal location, so I figured it’s a good place to start.
And lastly, here’s an artistic rendering of a possible Kent Hotel/Conference Center from back in 2000.
With a couple of pictures in mind, now we can go out and “get’er done.”
