Agreement becomes final for another downtown convention hotel



Quote:
An agreement to build a second convention center hotel downtown has been finalized, city officials announced Tuesday.

Documents were executed with Houston-based Rida Development Corp., which will build the 1,000-room hotel, a Marriott Marquis just west of the George R. Brown Convention Center.

The city approved the project late last year.

"With this agreement, Rida can now begin work in earnest," Mayor Annise Parker said in a statement. "It's an exciting pro-ject that will help increase our convention business and generate more activity in downtown Houston."

Financing for the $335 million project will come in part from Houston First, which operates the city's arts and convention business. The agency is providing funds to buy the hotel site, build an adjacent parking garage and make other "related improvements" around the convention center.

Officials expect the hotel to be completed in 2016.

Is the height and floor count official? If so, can you provide a source?

a good filler. There is still quite a bit of open space around this building.

unfortunately they changed the design and chopped the top, a la Embassy Suites. there still appears to be some architectural feature on the roof, but much less dramatic, and shorter than the original proposal.

Convention center hotel funded and scheduled to break ground in 2014



Quote:
December 6, 2013

Plans to build a $335 million convention center hotel downtown moved a step forward today with the announcement that the developer has finalized its agreement with Marriott International to manage the hotel and that it has secured funding to construct the property.

Houston-based Rida Development, in partnership with Ares Management, said financing for the 1,000-room hotel will come from a six-bank consortium led by Wells Fargo and BBVA Compass. The other banks include CIT Bank, MidFirst Bank, Frost Bank, and PNC.

Construction is expected to start on April 11, and the property — the Houston Marriott Marquis – is projected to open in the summer of 2016 just west of the George R. Brown Convention Center near Discovery Green.

The project is expected to add more than 1,800 construction jobs and 700 permanent jobs to Houston’s hospitality industry, the developer said.
