LOS ANGELES—R.D. Olson Construction has commenced construction on a $44.5-million hotel project, the Residence Inn by Marriott at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) here.
The Irvine, CA-based general contractor was chosen by new owners, SVI LAX, LLC, to convert the 12-story office building to a 231-room, extended stay hotel. The new hotel will feature the Residence Inn by Marriott’s latest Generation 9 design, with guest amenities that include a pool, spa, fire pit, sports court, exercise room, business center and meeting space. The hotel entrance will include a backlit, free-flowing sphere porte cochère. Located at the gateway to LAX on West Century Blvd., the new Residence Inn will also feature 3,000 sq. ft. of retail and restaurant space.
The Residence Inn by Marriott at LAX is slated for completion in January 2015.
