Jackson-Shaw to develop dual-branded hotel in Las Vegas

Jackson-Shaw, a national real estate developer headquartered in Texas, is developing the dual-branded AC Hotel by Marriott Symphony Park and Element by Westin Symphony Park in Las Vegas. The two hotels connected under one roof are located on the south side of South Grand Central Parkway and Symphony Park Avenue between the World Market Center and The Smith Center for the Performing Arts. Groundbreaking is set for January, with the opening set for late 2025.

“Symphony Park is an exciting and transformative development in Las Vegas, aimed at creating a mixed-use urban environment that blends culture, green spaces, residential living and economic opportunities to enhance the city's downtown district,” Mayor Carolyn Goodman said in a statement. “Jackson-Shaw’s dual-branded hotel is a welcome addition to the dynamic area.”

The five-story development will have a total of 441 guestrooms. At the AC Hotel by Marriott Symphony Park, 322 guestrooms feature the brand’s clean, simple and crisp lines, marrying sophisticated European style with a distinctly modern feel. The Element by Westin Symphony Park has 119 rooms and offers the essentials of balanced travel for the longer-stay guest who does not want to compromise comfort and design. 

The development will have 18,025 square feet of flexible ballroom and meeting space and seven entertainment suites with an outdoor pool and terrace. The 261,530-square-foot building sits on 2.63 acres. It is expected to provide 150 full-time and 50 part-time jobs.

“This venture marks a significant milestone in Jackson-Shaw’s growth and reflects our unwavering commitment to fueling economic growth and enriching the hospitality landscape within the cities we operate,” said Joe Blewitt, Jackson-Shaw SVP of hotel development. “We’ve developed 21 hotels and more than 63 million square feet of commercial real estate since 1972, including the Renaissance Las Vegas.”

The hotel is being developed in partnership with Compatriot Capital, and Hall Structured Finance is providing construction financing. Grand Canyon Development Partners is the construction manager, Whiting-Turner is the general contractor and Cooper Carry is the architect.
