MJM Group to Build Dual-Brand Marriott Hotel in Charlotte, North Carolina

CHARLOTTE, NC, September 19, 2016 – MJM Group, a leading Marriott developer based in Raleigh, NC, will develop a new 188-room dual-brand hotel that includes a 94-room Courtyard by Marriott and a 94-room Marriott Residence Inn.  Construction is expected to begin this Sept., and the hotel is scheduled to be completed by March of 2018.

The $45 million seven-story hotel will be built at 9110 Harris Corners Parkway in Charlotte, NC.  The 130,000-square-foot hotel will feature a shared Courtyard and Residence Inn lobby, Courtyard’s latest bistro concept, two patio areas with an outdoor swimming pool, an oversized exercise room, and meeting room space.  In addition, the project will generate a portion of the hotel’s power requirements through alternative energy technology.  The company also plans to provide charging stations for electric cars.

The hotel will be adjacent to the Harris Corners Corporate Park, within minutes from Northlake Mall, and located only eight miles north of downtown Charlotte.  According to MJM Group’s CEO Anuj N. Mittal, “the location, amenities, and the brand-mix make this a destination hotel for both corporate and leisure travelers.”  He added that “We at MJM Group, along with our team, are committed to providing a high quality hotel to all Marriott guests and valued customers.”

The project’s design, construction, advisory and management team includes architect The Lawrence Group based in Charlotte, NC; interior design and architecture firm Gray Design based in St. Louis, MO, and; national hotel advisory firm Paramount Lodging Advisors based in Chicago, IL.  The Whiting-Turner Contracting Company, a nationally recognized construction firm headquartered in Baltimore, MD, has been selected as the general contractor for the project.  This flagship property will be managed by leading hotel management group Midas Hospitality based in St. Louis, MO.  Financing for the project is provided by Live Oak Bank based in Wilmington, NC.

Founded in 2004, MJM Group is also the developer of the dual-brand Residence Inn and Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Charlotte Airport, which is expected to open this Oct.  MJM Group’s principals are Anuj and Vinita Mittal, and their company previously developed the 109-room Courtyard by Marriott at Triangle Town Center-North Raleigh, which won Marriott’s Platinum Circle, Diamond Circle, and Gold Circle awards in consecutive years.

MJM Group had previously begun construction of a 118-room Courtyard by Marriott hotel at this location in late 2012.  Its development was stopped midway due to design and construction issues.  The hotel’s shell was ultimately demolished in 2015 to make way for this new dual-brand hotel.

“We look forward to working with some of the industry’s most recognized leaders,” said Kurt Furlong, Midas Hospitality’s Principal and Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing.  “This dual-brand concept is perfect for the area’s mix of corporate transient and extended stay clientele.  The location’s proximity to so many of Charlotte’s corporate and leisure demand generators, focal points and highways will help us draw visitors from near and far.”
