The 66 room Hampton Inn is based on the end-canopy prototype. Located on a major road leading to downtown Ithaca, the four story building was designed per new planning guidelines requiring parking be located at the rear of the building. Split face color masonry forms the base of the building while the upper portion is finished in two colors of EIFS. To deal with the high water table and low bearing capacity of the soil, five feet deep of soil was removed and kept hollow underneath the new building footprint. This innovative structural design allowed for a large building in a notoriously wet area.
