Construction on the $35 million Marriott Moxy hotel
in Cherry Creek North has begun, with the hotel expected to open by the middle of next year.
The hotel, being developed by BMC Investments
, will be a low-cost alternative for the Cherry Creek North shopping district.
"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 Matt Joblon, CEO of BMC. "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."
Designed by Johnson Nathan Strohe
, the hotel at 240 Josephine St. will have 170 rooms, a fitness center, indoor and outdoor meeting space and a large bar and lounge in the lobby. Rather than checking in at the reception desk, guests will check in at the bar. The outdoor lounge spaces will be open to the public and feature fire pits with comfortable seating. The outdoor space will be programmed with events geared to the residents of Cherry Creek North and the Denver Country Club neighborhoods.
Marriott launched the Moxy brand in Europe in 2013 and recently expanded into the United States with locations in New York, Chicago and San Francisco also scheduled to open next year. This will be the first Moxy in Colorado.
