Pier B Resort

No hotel in Duluth is closer to the water than Pier B Resort. The 140-room, 85,000 sf resort hotel capitalizes on the Lake Superior harbor view with expansive windows within the hotel rooms, conference space, restaurant and pool.

While the outcome is impressive, the project faced the challenge of building on a former industrial site, including tight space constraints, an aggressive development timetable and multi-agency environmental coordination between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, as well as a State Historical Preservation review.

The finished product includes two upper level decks facing the harbor, outdoor fire pits, an outdoor hot tub, bike rental, a footbridge to connect Pier B Resort and Bayfront Festival Park and waterfront access for boats and kayaks.
