“This estimated $150 million hotel and mixed-use project will contribute to downtown Tacoma’s renaissance significantly,” according to a city staff report. “It is one of the first major foreign direct investments on publicly owned land in Tacoma. The project will generate substantial tax revenue, create about 1,000 construction jobs and at least 200 full-time jobs, and enable the GTCC to attract larger conventions to enhance Tacoma’s economic vitality.”
The Tacoma Convention Center Hotel, developed by Yareton Investment & Management, will offer 300 rooms in a new Mariott branded hotel and retail spaces. Expected to open in 2020, the 4-star hotel will rise 23 stories, include 304 guest rooms, and will be connected to the Greater Tacoma Convention Center. It will also feature a 10,000 square foot grand ballroom, retail space, and other function rooms. The hotel will serve as the anchor hotel for the convention center, which has struggled recently to land larger convention and trade shows because of the lack of nearby hotel rooms.
The Conco Companies NW Division is working a 7-day cycle in the tower, pouring the vertical the same day as the slab is poured, with a self-climbing core form system (supplied by FCI). The tower portion, consisting of the hotel, continues to L23 + a cantilevered concrete roof. The project will utilize 5,550,000 lbs. of rebar, 25,000 cubic yards of concrete, and 430,000 linear feet of post tension cables. Conco is scheduled to pour-out the project by June 2019.
