Midas Construction has kicked off construction in Clayton, Mo. on a $47 million Residence Inn by Marriott, an upscale, extended-stay hotel.
The 12-story, 170-room project is being developed by Midas Hospitality and is slated to open in 2022.
“While the pandemic put a lot of business traveling on hiatus, we’re confident in its resurgence and have designed the Residence Inn to meet the needs of the business traveler and families,” said Linda Eigelberger, vice president, revenue and marketing with Midas Hospitality.
Located at 8125 Forsyth Blvd, the 155,379-SF hotel will feature:
· Commanding views of Shaw Park and a street-level bar with indoor and outdoor seating that connects to the park and business district
· 3,300-SF of second level meeting space with an outdoor terrace and bar
· Studio Suites with oversized windows for extra interior daylight, fully-equipped kitchens and luxury finishes throughout
· 1,500-SF fitness center
· Complimentary breakfast and evening social events
· Guest laundry among other amenities
“It will be a place to recharge and relax with spectacular views of Shaw Park and great access to upscale retail and restaurants in the Clayton business district,” Eigelberger said.
Joining Midas Construction on the project are CECO Concrete Construction, Inc., as the design/build concrete contractor; SSC Engineering as the structural engineer; and design/build site work contractor, Castle Contracting, LLC.
“This is an extremely tight site, wedged between two of Clayton’s more prominent office buildings,” said Chris Shinkle, president of Midas Construction. “Our design/assist team has been working with the developer from day one to create a hotel that complements the adjacent buildings and the curvature on Forsyth Boulevard.”
Midas will be using off-site prefabrication of plumbing and electrical components to facilitate installations on the tight site.
