Hilton Hotel at Stadium Place
A 23-story Hilton Embassy Suites Hotel will anchor the eastern half of Stadium Place, a mixed-use project near Century Link Field.
The project's developer American Life Inc. said the hotel will have 297 rooms, along with 6,000 square feet of office space connected by an atrium. In total, Stadium Place will occupy a total of 4 acres at the edge of the Century Link Field's north parking lot.
Gregory Steinhauer, chief operating officer at American Life, said construction is slated to start in late summer or early fall. Construction would likely take about two years. Steinhauer said the project is currently going through design review.
Freiheit and Ho Architects Inc. will design the building. American Life has its own contracting company, SODO Builders, to work on the project. DCI is the structural engineer, Degen & Degen is the interior designer and Integrated Site Design is the landscape architect.
The project could cost more than $300 million. American Life pays for projects through the federal EB-5 program, which lets foreign nationals invest in projects in exchange for green cards.
Along with the hotel, American Life will build a four-story parking podium, a gym with a pool and a conference center and ballroom. The complex will also have 15,000 square feet of retail space.
The second phase of this part of the project involves building 171,000 square feet of office space spread over nine stories. A top floor restaurant and bar will be there as well. American Life is developing the office portion with Daniels Real Estate.
Daniels is also developing the west portion of Stadium Place with R.D. Merrill Co. It will have four structures totaling 700 units, including:
• A four-story podium with 74 apartments, 16,000 square feet of retail and about 370 parking spaces set to open next spring
• A 10-story apartment building with 109 loft-style units scheduled to open in September
• A 25-story apartment tower with 331 units opening in the spring of 2014
• A 20-story future tower with 226 hotel/condo units planned for delivery in 2015
The west team includes ZGF Architects, JTM Construction and CPL.
