The Hotel at Arundel Preserve
Hanover, Md.

Southern Management Corp. wanted its new hotel in Maryland’s fast-growing Arundel Preserve district to be a step above the other lodging choices in and around the nearby Baltimore/Washington International Airport. To that end, the developer scrapped its original idea of opening a limited-service Hyatt Place at the Arundel site, opting instead to go forward with plans for an eco-friendly, upscale boutique hotel. “Southern Management decided to take the money that typically goes to franchise fees and put it into creating a oneof-a-kind destination,” notes RD Jones + Associates principal Rebecca Jones, whose firm created the interior architecture and design for the 150-key hotel. When RD Jones entered the picture, the previous developers of the project had already secured the needed permits to house

a limited-service operation, but the building itself had not yet been erected. That meant designers were obligated to keep the building’s original footprint, and had to reconfigure it to house full-service amenities. “Doing that involved such things as installing a grand staircase, creating an additional banquet kitchen, and adding another level to create a second floor to house pre-function and meeting space, a ballroom, restrooms and banquet sales office. Adding that new level also meant we were required to add two additional egress stairs connecting to the first floor,” notes Jones, whose firm has designed a dozen other hotel and multifamily projects for Southern Management over the past decade. Beyond that, Jones says that Southern Management felt incorporating ecofriendly features into the hotel’s design—

and actively promoting them—would add to the locale’s appeal. The designers’ biggest contribution along those lines involved finding ways to allow lots of natural light into the space, mainly by installing floorto-ceiling windows throughout its function rooms and setting back the pre-function space off the exterior wall to allow light to filter through a large atrium space. “We followed that up by using energy-efficient fluorescent and LED lighting throughout the hotel,” Jones says. Other green initiatives include using locally sourced millwork made from FSCcertified materials, installing an energyefficient HVAC system and specifying water-conserving plumbing fixtures. Those steps helped the hotel land LEED silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
