In early 2012, the property at ..., 11 Feb 2011 [cached]
In early 2012, the property at 1100 N. Central Ave. will re-open as a non-branded boutique hotel and art gallery, said Tim Sprague, a principal at Habitat Metro, one of three development groups that purchased the hotel in January.
The Lexington's art gallery should set it apart, Sprague said.
In addition, the property's face-lift likely will make the "new" Lexington hardly recognizable when compared with its former self. Even its name will change, Sprague said, although he did not say what the new name would be.
Renderings of the post-renovation property show an expanded ground floor where the art gallery will be located. That space will double as a meeting area, Sprague said.
To allow for the 8,000- to 10,000-square-foot expansion, the hotel's existing porte-cochere, or vehicle entrance, will be enclosed. The Lexington's existing restaurant will be redone and slightly expanded, and all its 108 rooms will undergo a full remodeling.
The finished product: a three- to four-star hotel with rates averaging between $175 and $200 per night, Sprague said.
That compares to the hotel's lowest rate of $99 on Feb. 9, according to its website.
"We feel the downtown hospitality market is very ripe in terms of a unique niche arts hotel," Sprague said.
Development will continue when market conditions improve, Sprague said.
The Lexington is the first hotel project for the development group.
Habitat Metro and its partners purchased the property from NCA Hotel Partners LLC for $4.8 million on Jan. 19, documents from IonData show.
That was only about seven months after NCA Hotel Partners, the property's lender, absorbed the hotel at a foreclosure auction, according to Sprague and filings at the Maricopa County Recorder's Office.
NCA Hotel Partners was the property's lender for only a short stint before the property went into foreclosure, Sprague said.
NCA partner Peter Gooding is one of several investors who will finance the Lexington's renovation project, Sprague said.

Real estate developer Timothy Sprague (also behind Portland Place Condominiums) and his firm Habitat Metro are behind the $5 million project, which will create 60 affordable live-work spaces for artists and creative types.
Oasis on Grand will be similar, in most respects, to Holgas. Plans include a variety of studio and one-bedroom apartments that will function as both studio-galleries and living spaces. According to Sprague, the spaces will rent for $400 to $700, and more than a dozen of the ground-level apartments along Roosevelt Street can function as galleries open to the public.
Sprague says the remodeling will take approximately six to eight months to complete, with a grand opening happening sometime in the late fall.
?The Oasis began life as the Caravan Inn West in 1960, one of the many colorful motor hotels that sprung up along Grand Avenue when the thoroughfare was the primary route for motorists to get from Phoenix to Los Angeles or Las Vegas.
It later reopened as the Oasis Hotel in 1971, but fell into serious decline over the next four decades, becoming something a seedy flophouse before closing down in 2007.
Sprague says that several "common area" spaces at the new Oasis will serve as a community-oriented studio and gallery, and there will also be tree-lined courtyard area for special events.
NOTE: Tim is a member of the DVC Steering Comittee.
