525 6th St, Sioux City, IA 51101
An integral part of American History, Sioux City is full of rich stories- to its integral part in supplying the west as the navigational head of the Missouri River, the booming 90’s that brought a new meaning to industries such as technology, and livestock growth, and the prosperous entertainment and art district.
The Warrior Hotel & The Davidson Building
Both The Warrior and Davidson properties, built in 1930 and 1913, respectively, have been vacant for the past 40 years, and are listed on the National Register of Historical Places. Funding for the renovation project is supported by nearly $18 million in assistance approved by the Iowa Department of Economic Development, including $16.5 million in State Historic Tax Credits and $5 million in the form of loans and grants from the City of Sioux City
Working in association with BSI Constructors, Inc., FEH Architects, and Checkmate Design, Restoration St. Louis is actively rehabbing the original terra cotta ornamentation and brick exterior of the buildings, including the infamous Warrior icons, and ornate buffalo heads. The sweeping grandeur of the two-story marble staircase, along with its gilded ornamental trimmings and brass railings will also be authentically restored. When completed, the Warrior Hotel will feature 148 guest rooms, 11 suites, 22 luxury apartments, a second-floor full-service restaurant, and a signature ballroom featuring a terrace.
A luxurious spa and sauna, barbershop, and retail shop will be located at street level; basement amenities will include a large swimming pool, fitness center, bowling alley and lounge area. The Davidson Apartments will have an additional 56 rooms on the second through fourth floors, 20 luxury one- to two-bedroom apartments, two one-bedroom lofts, and street-level commercial space opening onto 6th and Pierce.
