RALEIGH, NC–HKS Holdings, LLC, a full service real estate development company, and Concord Hospitality Enterprises, an award-winning hotel development and management company, are excited to announce the start of construction on the Renaissance Hotel in Wauwatosa, Wis., which will be the first full-service, Marriott-branded hotel in the area.

The hotel will be a first-class property with 196 rooms and suites, including a 12th floor with amenities such as a concierge lounge, fitness room and one-of-a-kind event spaces. It will also feature a 4,500 sq. ft. grand ballroom, additional meeting space and a chef-driven destination restaurant.

“Concord is excited to partner with HKS Holdings for the first time to develop the Renaissance Hotel in Wauwatosa, and we look forward to working together on future ventures as part of a long and fruitful alliance,” said Mark Laport, President and CEO of Concord. “Concord is especially eager to begin work on this adaptive reuse project to offer guests visiting Wauwatosa and the greater Milwaukee area a place to stay that will allow them to explore and experience this growing and flourishing market.”

Wauwatosa is the largest area submarket outside of downtown Milwaukee. In recent years, it has seen tremendous growth with more than $300 million in new developments at the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center and UWM Innovation Campus, new projects at The Milwaukee County Research Park, Mayfair Collection, the opening of the first Nordstrom’s store in the state and a new SpringHill Suites by Marriott, which will open this April and is also being developed by HKS Holdings.

“For many years, Wauwatosa has been the place that businesses who want to expand into Wisconsin have placed their ‘first in the state’ operations,” said Wauwatosa Mayor Kathy Ehley. “We are thrilled that the Renaissance Hotels by Marriott is choosing to have their ‘first in state’ here with us. This addition will further enhance Mayfair Mall as the top lifestyle shopping destination and Wauwatosa as a foremost tourism destination in Wisconsin.”

The project team consists of HKS Holdings and Concord as developer, Kahler Slater as architect, Simeone Deary Design Group as interior architect, 50 / Fifty Group as food and beverage consultant and restaurant concept, CD Smith as contractor, Graef as structural engineer and Pinnacle Engineering as civil consultant.

Once completed, Concord will also be managing the hotel and restaurant. With more than 100 hotel properties throughout the country and many innovative restaurant concepts, Concord is one of the foremost leaders in the hospitality industry.

The project is expected to be completed by spring/summer 2020.
