Mortenson is developing and building an 11-story, 210-key Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton in downtown Phoenix, immediately south of the campus of Arizona State University. It will be the first Hampton Inn & Suites in downtown Phoenix.
Construction is scheduled for completion in summer 2018. The hotel is being designed by PK Architects and Design Force. This is the second Hampton Inn & Suites that Mortenson has developed in the past three years. The hospitality market in Phoenix continues to strengthen with the growing demand in the area.
"Our site is strategically located to capture hotel demand from the city's core central business district as well as from ASU and the Phoenix Biomedical Campus," said Nate Gundrum, director of real estate development, at Mortenson. "The strength of our location, combined with the strength of the Hampton flag will be a great addition to the downtown Phoenix lodging supply."
Mortenson's current and recent hospitality development projects include two AC Hotels by Marriott in Minneapolis, Minn. and Portland, Ore.; a JW Marriott and a Radisson Blu at Mall of America, Bloomington, Minn.; the Hyatt Regency at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland; expansion of the Hotel Commonwealth, Boston, Mass.; and the Marriott HARBORCENTER, Buffalo, N.Y.
Founded in 1954, Mortenson is a U.S.-based, family-owned construction and real estate development company.
