New Hotel in a Growing Angola, IN
August 1, 2018
Tuesday, July 31, 2018, was celebrated with a groundbreaking ceremony for a new and much-needed hotel in Angola, Indiana and May 21, 2019 marks the grand opening. The Wingate by Wyndham hotel features four-stories and approximately 90 rooms. It will be the first project in the Angola Innovation Park, a certified technology park, developed by Angola First Development. This business park is located near the intersection of Interstate 69 and U.S. 20.
Based on the Wingate prototype, MSKTD & Associates developed a plan to meet the owner’s expectations. MSKTD provided all architectural services, as well as MEP and structural engineering. Although the final design meets Wingate’s standards, many architectural and engineering adjustments made the new hotel fit perfectly into the northeastern Indiana Angola setting.
Teaming with JICI Construction, we were made aware of the tight schedule and we knew we could meet the deadline. Plus, there was a trust factor: Having teamed on a variety of projects in the past with JICI, it made our decision to work together on another project that much easier.
The Wyndham Hotel group is one of the largest and most diverse hotel companies in the world with about 7,650 hotels across six continents. The Wingate brand falls into the midscale category. With the growth and developments in Angola, at Trine University, and around the community, this new hotel should meet the needs of everyone for years to come.
“Built for Work. Built for Play. Built for You” is the motto that describes the experience of the Wingate branch of hotels, and we are happy that we played a part in bringing that experience to the City of Angola.
On May 21, 2019 Angola celebrated the grand opening of the Windgate by Wyndham. The new hotel has amenities for meetings, a workout space, and food service space. MSKTD teamed with JICI Construction to get the hotel built in 10 months.
