INDIANAPOLIS | JW Marriott | 373 FT / 114 M | 34 FLOORS | APPROVED

A new 1,000 room JW Marriott hotel to be linked to the expanded Indiana Convention Center. This project is approved and will begin construction in Summer 2008 with an early 2011 completion. It is part of a larger hotel complex that will include an additional 500 rooms to the JW Marriott.

Press Release:

Indianapolis, Ind. -- White Lodging Services and REI Real Estate Services today announced the design completion for the $425 million JW Marriott Complex in Indianapolis. The dynamic hotel development project will include the city’s largest, full-service convention hotel and a total of 1,568 rooms including: 1,000 rooms in the JW Marriott tower; 250 rooms in the Courtyard by Marriott; 168 rooms in the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott; and 150 rooms in the SpringHill Suites by Marriott.

The 34-story JW Marriott has a unique, crescent moon shape and includes a glass curtain wall system with thousands of multi-colored glass panels. The JW Marriott tower stands approximately 373-feet tall making it the tallest hotel in Indianapolis and the city’s seventh tallest building.

“White Lodging and REI have worked tirelessly to create a tremendous design that we believe will be a lasting, dynamic addition to the downtown skyline,” said Michael W. Wells, president of REI Real Estate Services, LLC. “Both White Lodging and REI are Indiana companies and we are thrilled to be involved in one of the biggest hotel development projects in the country.”

Architectural renderings showcase the magnificent design of the 373-foot JW Marriott tower which will be located on a ten acre site overlooking the White River State Park at the southwest corner of West and Washington Streets. The JW Marriott features an enormous 45,000 square foot Grand Ballroom and includes 110,000 square feet of meeting and event space.

The economic impact of the massive project is tremendous: generating nearly 500 construction jobs and more than $5 million in sales tax revenue to the State of Indiana during construction alone. Once completed, the JW Marriott Complex will employ more than 1,000 people.

“The JW Marriott Complex will be a major contributor to the future success of downtown Indianapolis,” said Wells. “In addition to the more than 1,000 jobs created at the four hotel properties, this hotel development will create tremendous growth opportunity for Indianapolis’ multi-billion dollar tourism industry.”

The Marriott hotels will serve as an anchor for Indianapolis’ convention and tourism industry which totals more than $3.25 billion a year. In addition, the JW Marriott Complex is a crucial part of the city’s efforts to host the 2012 Super Bowl and future NCAA events. The timeline for the JW Marriott Complex is as follows: construction begins in summer 2008; construction completed in winter 2011; and the grand opening in spring 2011.

The JW Marriott Complex will be developed through the partnership of Whiteco Industries, Incorporated; White Lodging Services Corporation; and REI Real Estate Services, LLC.

I love it! Hopefully it will make the skyline appear a little larger since it's not right in the cluster.

Someone please change the status, this is under construction, not 'approved', and might even be topping out relatively soon.
Don't be shy. Step into the light.
