Luhrs Marriott Courtyard & Residence Inn
This project is a master plan and design for a 1.2 million square foot mixed-use development on a full city block in downtown Phoenix. This first phase of the project is a tenant improvement to the Luhrs Building and façade renovation to the historic Post Office, Luhrs Tower and Luhrs Building. The second phase currently under construction is a 19-story, 315 guest room/ suite Marriott Residence Inn and Courtyard by Marriott. These hotels will feature a “co-branded” design approach with each hotel brand having separate guest rooms and dining areas, while sharing a common registration lobby and back of house operations. The hotel will also include 5,800 square feet of shared meeting space, an enclosed pool and fitness center and a fourth floor bar and events center opening up to panoramic views of the city and sports complex. The third phase is planned to be a 26-story, 400 room full service hotel. The final phase will be a 33-story office and residential condominium tower. The first phase was completed in 2011 and the second phase co-branded Marriott hotel is scheduled to open in 2016. The project is a development of the Hansji Corporation.
