A W Hotel in Center City?

It looks like a future W Hotel is planned to go up at 1441 Chestnut Street. The lot, currently a parking lot next to The Residences at the Ritz Carlton, is a part of the space that once held One Meridian Plaza (the office building that caught fire and took the lives of three firefighters back in 1991). It sounds like Starwood Hotels hopes to have the new digs open in January of 2015. [Naked Philly]
