Unique in all aspects, this diverse, elaborate project entails redeveloping the existing regional airport, Sloulin Field. In the heart of this 800-acre Master Plan, Todd & Associates teamed with Cardon Global to design a 143,000 SF convention/exhibit center and 4-story, 125-room conference hotel. At the state and city of Williston’s request, this development will have an urban planning component to its design. A first of its kind development in the region, Williston Square will be a demonstration project for creating vibrant public spaces and desired destination spots. Restaurants, retail, social gathering spaces, and ample streetscape will line the streets of Williston Square. It will encourage alternative transportation, such as biking and walking, and have a pedestrian feel. Adding to the urban plan, this development is designed to frame an outdoor park and provide social space for the community. This park will feature a skating pavilion with track and rink and a 5,000 seat amphitheater for summer concerts and events.
Conference & Hospitality
Along with education, tourism is one of the largest industries worldwide. Traditionally, hotel and convention center architecture tends to look more like office building architecture in most cases. At Todd & Associates, our designs for conference and hospitality projects focus on the four C’s that accommodate business and leisure travelers:
- Connection between people and place, engaging the environment
- Comfort, both physical and psychological
- Choice of accommodations
- Convenience through amenities offered
These elements, combined with our stringent sustainability practices, produce remarkable results of enduring design, whether for high-end conference centers, resorts or boutique hotels.
