IRVINE, CA–-R.D. Olson Construction, an award-winning general contracting firm in California, commenced construction on the AC Hotel by Marriott, a 98,728-square-foot property located at 2130 Maple Ave in El Segundo, California. The ground-up construction will feature European-inspired rooms and meeting spaces that are designed with the contemporary traveler in mind.
Situated in a newly developed office park near the Los Angeles Lakers training facility, the six-story AC Hotel will consist of 180 guest rooms, a 24-hour fitness center, meeting rooms and a host of outdoor spaces including the first rooftop bar and lounge in the area. The property is also in close proximity to the Los Angeles International Airport and walking distance to The Campus El Segundo Athletic Fields.
“We are excited to embark on this new partnership with the Welcome Group, Inc. to bring a project to fruition that seamlessly blends unique experiences with the needs of Millennial and entrepreneurial guests,” said Bill Wilhelm, president of R.D. Olson Construction. “This groundbreaking marks our second AC Hotel and reflects our longstanding partnership with Marriott, which has enabled us to work on visionary projects in California and beyond.”
The hotel boasts an array of onsite amenities including AC Kitchen, a European-inspired restaurant serving sweet and savory breakfast options and The AC LoungeSM, a co-working space by day and social venue by night, complete with hand-crafted cocktails, craft beer and tapas-style plates.
R.D. Olson Construction is working with the Welcome Group, Inc., AXIS/GFA Architecture Design, Design Force Corporation and Robison Engineering, Inc. on the project. Completion is anticipated for spring 2019.
