R.D. Olson Begins Construction on Hampton Inn Glendale
January 8, 2015 – Lodging Magazine
Irvine, Calif.—R.D. Olson Construction has begun construction on a five-story, 94-room Hampton Inn & Suites hotel on the corner of Colorado Street and Brand Boulevard in Glendale, Calif. The Irvine, Calif.-based general contractor was selected by Vista Investments to construct the hotel, which is slated for a spring 2016 completion.
“The construction of the Hampton Inn & Suites will continue the growth of Glendale’s vibrant downtown area,” said Tommy Marcum, project executive at R.D. Olson Construction. “The project joins developments like the adjacent, mixed-use Americana at Brand in continuing to transform Glendale’s downtown into a dynamic, regional destination with an increasing draw.”
The Hampton Inn & Suites’ common amenities will include an elevated outdoor pool deck with mountain views, lounge seating with an outdoor fireplace, a fitness center, and a lobby with an inviting entrance for guests and visitors along Colorado Street. The 57,327-square-foot hotel will have two levels of parking.
The hotel’s design elements feature brick, stucco, metal, and glass, complementing the urban design of neighboring properties. Togawa Smith Martin will serve as the architectural firm for the project.
In addition to the Hampton Inn & Suites in Glendale, R.D. Olson Construction is currently under construction on eight Los Angeles-based projects including the Residence Inn by Marriott at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in Los Angeles; Residence Inn by Marriott in Pasadena; SpringHill Suites by Marriott in Burbank; Strathmore multi-family project in Westwood; Califa Office Building in Van Nuys; Bicycle Casino Hotel in Bell Gardens; The Village at Calabasas in Calabasas; and the renovation of the W Hotel in Los Angeles.
