The Korte Company, based out of St. Louis, will begin construction of the new, 7-story, 200 guest-room Navy Gateway Inns & Suites hotel at Naval Station Newport (NAVSTA Newport). The 103,831-square-foot project also includes the construction of a 175-vehicle parking area on the adjacent Lawrence Field.
When completed in April of 2017, the facility will be the Central Lodging facility for Naval Station Newport as well as the main check-in point for all base lodging. Additionally, the building will accommodate the majority of administrative, staff training, maintenance and guest services functions, including an on-premise commercial laundry facility.
The facility will be designed to achieve LEED Silver Certification per US Green Building Council (USGBC) requirements.
