NATIONAL REPORT—A bunch of projects are underway in a number of cities on the West Coast. Here are some of them:
CitizenM Seattle Pioneer Square
CitizenM has broken ground on the 216-room CitizenM Seattle Pioneer Square. It marks the second property in Seattle for the brand, following CitizenM Seattle South Lake Union.
The team behind the new project includes Amsterdam-based firm Concrete, who designs all citizenM hotels; the architecture firm Gensler; and general contractor Mortenson.
The 10-story property located across the street from the Seattle Ferry Terminal will feature a brick-and-glass facade, inspired by the context of the historic neighborhood. The 216 guestrooms will include a rain shower; iPad room controls for lights, temperature, TV and blinds; and an HDTV with free moves and streaming capabilities.
Other hotel features include retail space CollectionM; open-plan dining area CanteenM; a living room with designated working areas; and self check-in.
Wyndham Hotel in Bolsa Row Development
R.D. Olson Construction has revealed the ground-up construction of Bolsa Row, a mixed-use development in Westminster, CA’s Little Saigon District. Located on a six-acre lot, the project will include the region’s first full-service and four-star hotel by Wyndham Hotels and Resorts, as well as a 225,000-sq.-ft. apartment complex, retail space and community spaces.
The five-story Wyndham hotel will feature 148 guestrooms, as well as restaurants; a bar and lounge; elevated pool deck with cabanas; and 48,000-sq.-ft. of banquet space. The property will also include an event lawn and wedding garden with a celebration bridge that connects guests to the community’s festival street.
R.D. Olson Construction is working with KTGY Architecture + Planning, interior designer Cole Martinez Curtis, VCA Structural Engineering and MJS Landscape Architecture on the project. Bolsa Row is expected to be complete in winter 2021.
Bode Palm Springs
Bode Palm Springs has broken ground in the downtown area of Palm Spring, CA. It will be the brand’s first new-build property, and follows renovated properties in Nashville and Chattanooga, TN.
Offering a residence-style desert oasis hotel experience, the 43,679-sq.-ft. hotel will feature 38 units with two to four bedrooms, as well as Bode’s signature space, The Hub, a two-level lounge including a patio lounge, pool and tuk-tuk bar.
The first Moxy hotel in Portland, OR, has topped off. Located on the edge of the city’s Pearl District in the west end, the property is expected to open in February 2021.
Design elements of the 197-room hotel include geometric patterns configured through an abstract of rainfall; a color palette that reflects the local Columbia River Basin basalt stone; and floor-to-ceiling glass walls at the end of each corridor.
Moxy Portland is developed, owned and operated by Graves Hospitality in partnership with KCB Real Estate. DLR Group is providing architecture and interior design services, and Howard S. Wright Construction and Urban Resources Inc. are collaborating on construction of the hotel.
