19-Story Marriott Tower Coming Downtown Phoenix

Although not as tall as the recently opened 68-story Marriott property in New York City, a similar concept is coming to downtown Phoenix.

Irvine-based Hansji Urban is developing the 19-story tower, which will be comprised of a 120-room Courtyard by Marriott on the lower floors, and a 200-room Residence Inn by Marriott on the upper floors. As in the New York City property, both hotels will share a lobby and amenities.

The Phoenix development will be located within the Luhrs block in Downtown Phoenix near the Kimpton Hotel Palomar at CityScape. Construction is set to start in the spring of this year with an opening scheduled early 2016.
