Hotel Angad will be the name of Grand Center hotel

Hotel Angad will be the name of the 145-room inn at the Missouri Theatre building the Lawrence group is redeveloping in St. Louis' Grand Center.

The hotel's name is meant to honor Angad Paul, who died Nov. 8 in a fall from a balcony at his eighth-floor residence in London. Paul, 45, was chief executive of Caparo Group.

His connection to the Missouri Theatre building is that Caparo shares ownership of the 12-story structure with Lawrence Group. Caparo is the parent of Bull Moose Industries, which is moving its headquarters to the building from Chesterfield.
