Frank Cretella and his Landmark Hospitality development company are moving forward with their dramatic expansion of the Logan Inn, which they purchased in 2015.
New Hope Borough Council at its monthly meeting Tuesday night will consider Cretella’s request to begin construction at 10 W. Ferry St. New Hope’s Historic Architectural Review Board (HARB) gave the project their final nod on Sept. 12.
The Logan Inn is located on an acre of prime downtown turf, has 73 parking spaces, can seat 400 at its main restaurant, and currently boasts 16 rooms.
Cretella is also undertaking the redevelopment of the adjacent “Cannon Square,” a triangular grassy area at the intersection of West Ferry and South Main streets, featuring a large pine tree used for the borough’s Christmas festivities, and an old cannon with a stack of oversized balls.
The complex overhaul would create more outdoor table seating for the Logan Inn by eliminating the northern spur of West Ferry Street as it meets South Main street, and also involve the re-positioning of the tree and cannon.
Landmark Hospitality also owns and manages Hotel du Village in nearby Solebury Township, Liberty House Restaurant inside Liberty State Park in Jersey City, Stone House at Stirling Ridge in Warren, NJ, Crave Caterers (an off-site catering division), Celebrate at Snug Harbor (inside Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Gardens), Landmark Destination Weddings, and the well-known Ryland Inn in Whitehouse Station, N.J.
