Hennepin hotel rehab swallows ProColor, dumps eatery


The Chambers, an upscale "boutique" hotel proposed for the old Fairmont Hotel at South 9th Street & Hennepin Avenue has doubled in size to 53 rooms under a revised proposal announced Sept. 1.

The luxury hotel will span 85,000 square feet and expand into the ProColor lot at 909 Hennepin Ave. S. The custom photo lab and digital imaging service will move to North Minneapolis by February 2005, said John Gorski, ProColor's president.

Ralph Burnet, the lead investor behind the Chambers, said the expansion was initially planned as a second phase of the development.
