Stonebridge Companies and Marriott International are developing a new Moxy hotel in Seattle.
The Moxy Seattle South Lake Union hotel will be one of the first Moxy hotels in the country. The Moxy brand debuted in Milan, Italy in 2014, and other U.S. locations are scheduled to open in New York City, Chicago, San Francisco and Nashville. Construction on the Seattle project began recently and the hotel is anticipated to open in late 2017. The hotel will be located at 1016 Republican Street in the South Lake Union neighborhood.
“Stonebridge Companies is proud to be partnering with Marriott International on launching one of the first Moxy hotels in the United States,” said Navin C. Dimond, founder, president and CEO of Stonebridge Companies. “The Moxy brand embodies the lively energy of this expanding area.”
The Moxy lobby is designed to offer a social atmosphere. The hotel has 147 guestrooms, a bar and elevators with photo booths and props.
The surrounding South Lake Union area includes millions of square feet of new office and residential space, including Amazon’s headquarters and growing campus. Google plans to occupy office space just one block away and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation headquarters and visitor center is within walking distance. The area is also becoming a hub for the life sciences industry. Leisure guests can easily access nearby attractions such as the Space Needle and the Experience Music Project.
