|Longtime Downtown hotel favorite Tremont Plaza (which sits a few blocks northwest of the Harbor at 222 St. Paul Place and now competes with Harbor East's showroom-new hotels) isn't playing Keeping Up with the Joneses. Instead, William C. Smith + Co has hired architecture firm R.D. Jones to redesign the property into one- and two-bedroom apartments for long-term stays (two months to two years). Much of its current business already is with professionals traveling here for job assignments or school. The developer bought the property in the early '80s when it was an apartment/office building (and people were still listening to Blue Oyster Cult... you know who you are). It'll continue as a traditional hotel through this year.|
