Barfield Building Rehabilitation

Amarillo, TX
Originally the Oliver Rea Eakle Building, the Barfield Building is located on Polk Street in downtown Amarillo, Texas. Constructed in 1926, the Barfield Building is a ten story building with a basement designed by Wyatt C. Hedrick. The Barfield Building was originally an office building with retail on the ground floor. The building has been renovated and modified in the past but retains much of its original historical integrity. The proposed development plan is to adapt the building to a boutique hotel with accompanying related hospitality functions. It is planned to have 112 guest rooms, restaurant, basement speakeasy and event accommodations. The adjacent vacant property was acquired to allow for the construction of a ballroom, office space and 22 parking spaces.
