The Elliot Park Hotel
Wilkinson Development Breaks Ground on The Elliot Park Hotel
A symbolic groundbreaking ceremony was held at the project site on Tuesday, August 1, commemorating the partnership of companies and joint venture investors involved in the Elliot"s design and start of construction.
Over the last year, Wilkinson Development (WD) has formed partnerships with key industry leaders to bring the vision of the Elliot to fruition. The total hotel project cost is estimated at $50 million. On June 30, 2017, WD closed on the acquisition of the hotel development site and will continue to oversee project construction, with an anticipated opening date in late summer/early fall 2018.
The Elliot Park Hotel will be a 168-room, eight-story, full-service hotel in one of Minneapolis" oldest downtown neighborhoods. It will offer over 2,300 square feet of high-end event space and boardrooms, a fireside lounge, fitness center, valet, concierge, and luxury guest rooms. Its central location will provide easy access to the Convention Center and other event venues, like the U.S. Bank Stadium. Tavola, the hotel"s farm-to-table Italian restaurant, will include the warm, inviting feeling and decidedly l ocal brand of hospitality echoed throughout the property.
The hotel is part of a larger block redevelopment that includes: the new corporate headquarters of Kraus-Anderson, one of WD"s partners and the project site"s master developer and general contractor; a 17-story residential apartment tower currently underway; a microbrewery; and outdoor common areas and underground parking.
