Legat Architects, Russell Construction team on first phase of mixed-use development
[East Moline, IL] – Today, a groundbreaking ceremony was held to begin construction of the Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotels in East Moline, Illinois. Legat Architects designed and Russell Construction will build the combined 233-room facility.
The 150,000-square-foot structure will be constructed beside the Mississippi River as part of the first phase of The Bend on the Mighty Mississippi mixed-use development. Construction is slated for completion in 2018.
An illuminated blade element and a ninth-floor, glass-enclosed lounge are designed to entice both travelers and locals.
“The design creates a cohesive structure under the Hyatt Place and Hyatt House brands, while offering two different hotel experiences under one roof,” said April Maifield, Director of Hospitality at Legat Architects.
The project is financed by Hall Structured Finance and developed by Great River Property Development. Olympia Hotel Management will operate the hotel. See more about the design of the Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotels.
