The Family Court building in Center City Philadelphia is the site of a new major development project.

Plans were announced Tuesday to turn the location into a luxury hotel.

The Kimpton Hotel will feature 199 guest rooms, event space and a spa and fitness center.

The city says it will create more than 600 construction and permanent jobs.

The family court is moving to a new location at 15th and Arch later this year.
