Construction on Raleigh’s new StateView Hotel at N.C. State University’s Centennial Campus is under way.

Joined by about 100 guests, Atlanta-based Noble Investment Group has recently broken ground on the project, a 164-key Marriott Autograph Collection hotel and conference center. The five-story lodging facility is expected to open by October 2016.

According to the Triangle Business Journal, Noble Investment’s other partners include co-developer Concord Eastridge, general contractor W.M. Jordan, architectural firm Cooper Carry, BB&T bank for debt financing, Stewart of Raleigh for engineering services and Interstate Hotels and Resorts as the property’s operations manager.

Designed to LEED Silver sustainability standards, the upcoming hotel will rise on the shore of Lake Raleigh, next to the N.C. State University Alumni Center and across from the Lonnie Poole Golf Course.

Amenities will include a signature restaurant and bar with private dining, fully-equipped business and fitness centers, and an outdoor swimming pool. Guests will also have access to more than 22,000 square feet of high-tech meeting and function space, as well as outdoor event terraces.

Marriott’s Autograph Collection comprises independent boutique luxury hotels and resorts, each with their own distinct personality.

Ben Brunt, a principal with Noble Investment, told the newspaper that this brand was the right affiliation for the Centennial Campus property since it allows for more design customization.
