Meyer Jabara Hotels to manage JDV by Hyatt conversion in IA
Main Street Community Capital, a Midwest-based development company, has selected Meyer Jabara Hotels (MJH) to manage its JDV by Hyatt in Dubuque, IA’s Historic Millwork District.

The 96-key project will reside on several floors of the Novelty Iron Works complex. The complex is a former “ironworks” turned millwork factory that was converted to a residential complex with food and beverage outlets, entertainment space, retail shops and courtyard. When complete, the property will feature a rooftop restaurant and bar also managed by MJH. Construction will begin in the fall, with a grand opening planned for fall 2023. This is the fourth Hyatt hotel in the MJH portfolio, its second management contract with MSCCap, and its first JDV by Hyatt branded property.

MSCCap’s Hyatt Place and Conference Center in Mason City, IA, will also be managed by Meyer Jabara Hotels when it opens next year. DLR Group of Minneapolis will oversee the architecture, engineering, planning and interior design of both MSCCap projects, as well.
