Paric began work this week on a $25 million Union Station renovation. Lawrence Group is the architect.

Lodging Hospitality Management will update all 539 guest rooms in St. Louis Union Station Doubletree, as well as the exhibition and grand halls.

The purchase and renovation is expected to cost an estimated $50 million, encompassing not only the hotel, but also the train shed and parking lot. The renovation will add about 50,000 square feet of new meeting space to the hotel, bringing the hotel’s total meeting space to about 100,000 square feet,,

The renovation will include “digital mapping” in the Grand Hall that will project the history of union station on the wall. Most of the work should be done by next Spring, Lodging Hospitality said.
