McCarthy Building Launches Development of Marriott-Branded Hotel
- Jul 22, 2020
McCarthy Building Cos. has kicked off site work for The Scarlet Hotel, a 154-key, Marriott-branded property in Lincoln, Neb.
The project has an estimated cost of $23 million and is being developed by a public-private partnership between Goldenrod Cos and The University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The development is set to be finalized in Fall 2021.
The site is a one-acre parcel located at the junction between Transformation Drive and North 21st Street. Plans call for a six-story building which will be part of the Marriott Tribute Portfolio, an assortment of independent boutique hotels. The amenity package will include a gym, restaurant and a rooftop bar.
Additionally, the property will have a 10,000-square-foot component designed for educational purposes for the University’s hospitality, tourism and restaurant management program. The space will feature faculty offices, classrooms, a student lounge, a conference room and an instructional kitchen.
DLR Group serves as the architect for the hotel, which will be developed in the vicinity of the Rise Building, a 75,000-square-foot office building at 2125 Transformation Drive. Both properties are situated in the University’s Innovation Campus.
In February, McCarthy Building Cos. finalized the development of a $147 million, eight-story tower for Mercy Hospital Northwest in Rogers, Ark. The new 275,000-square-foot building added 68 beds, operating rooms and diagnostic facilities.
