A new project with an old time feel has Siouxland excited about what’s to come. Amrit and Amy Gill are restoring the Warrior Hotel and Davidson building in hopes to bring a new, old-time feel back to Sioux City.
“You’ll be transported to Chicago and New York when you walk into these buildings,” said Gill.
It’s a new project that has Sarah Kragthorpe, the owner of Jitters coffee shop, excited about the new faces the project could bring downtown.
“I think it’s wonderful that they’re bringing back such an iconic Sioux City landmark for one thing. It’s such a unique setting and the potential for new customers is always a good thing,” said Kragthorpe.
The 10-story Warrior Hotel and Davidson apartment building are being restored to their former glory.
The project is expected to be completed by the summer of 2020.
“This building was the focal point of all social life in Sioux City fifty years prior to being shuttered and when it’s completed next summer, it’ll be the focal point for all social events in Sioux City again,” said Gill.
The project could bring more activity to the downtown area and will bring more jobs to fuel the local economy.
“There’s going to be 150 fulltime jobs here for the next year and a half and once we open there’ll be over 200 fulltime, well-paying jobs here in Sioux City,” said Gill.
The Warrior Hotel will feature a grand ballroom, a rooftop full-serviced bar, even a bowling alley, giving Siouxlanders and visitors more places to make new memories.
