BMC Investments (BMC) announced today the commencement of construction on the $35 million Marriott Moxy hotel in Cherry Creek North. The hotel will be located at 240 Josephine Street. It will feature 170 rooms, averaging 191 square feet per room.
Hotel amenities will include a fitness center, indoor and outdoor meeting space and a lobby, which includes a large bar and lounge. The property will also feature an outdoor lounge space open to hotel guests and the public that will serve as an event space as well.
“This is a really important project for Cherry Creek because it will allow travelers who have historically been priced out of this area to enjoy all of the incredible amenities it has to offer,” says Matthew Joblon, CEO of BMC Investments. “We are committed to delivering a space that our neighboring community will love as much as our hotel guests. This project is unlike anything Denver has ever seen in the hospitality space.”
This is the first Moxy hotel in Colorado. The brand launched in Europe in 2013 and has recently expanded into the U.S. with locations in New York, Chicago and San Francisco scheduled to open mid-2017.
The Moxy hotel will be operated by Vision Hospitality Group, GE Johnson is the general contractor and Denver-based JNS is the architecture firm that designed the building.
Construction of this project will take 14 months with an anticipated opening in mid-2017.
