LEGO kick-started the modular building set back in 2007, when they launched Café Corner (10182). Since then it’s been a decade and a half of awesome building sets melding together into a brick-built neighborhood. That also makes the coming year of 2022 the 15th anniversary for the “Modular Building Series.” Such an occasion calls for a one-of-a-kind LEGO set, to be sure. And back in October we caught wind of rumors to that regard. This would be set number 10297, with the reported name (translated from Promobricks.de) being Hotel & Art Gallery. Brickset gives us a different name, but the set’s officially confirmed at least.
Say hello to the 15th anniversary release for LEGO’s Modular Buildings Collection, Boutique Hotel (10297). At first glance, the build looks like a quaint old European-style hotel building with outdoor bar and side boutique/gallery. But closer details reveal that the set features call-backs some past LEGO modular sets. Boutique Hotel (10297) true to form slots into its fellow modular sets to build a seamless city block (banner picture). It will launch on January 1 as part of the New Year 2022 LEGO product storm. AFOL collectors must have earmarked this as a vital acquisition already.
