Key West Westin

Key West, Monroe County, Florida

This hotel and retail complex was designed around the existing Old Custom House in the Truman Annex area with great care to blend the new development seamlessly with the existing historical structures. Formerly a part of the Key West Navy Base, the surrounding area still features other historic buildings including the surgeon’s quarters, the old weather station and the marine hospital.

Hole Montes provided professional site planning, civil engineering design services and construction inspection services for the redevelopment of the Truman Annex, including the design of a 240 car multi-level parking garage, a 300 room resort hotel, and 120,000 square foot commercial marina retail building.

The project was permitted through the South Florida Water Management District, Florida Department of Environmental Protection, and the City of Key West. Some of the design considerations included road right of way issues, fire protection, stormwater treatment, potable water availability, and sewer service availability. All of these issues were coordinated with the client and appropriate governmental entities to permit and build a successful project.
