Moss Construction says it has been awarded a contract for the first phase of construction of the J.W. Marriott Clearwater Beach and has already begun the deep foundations.
The City of Clearwater issued a $5 million “foundation only” building permit for the project on March 10. The overall project cost was not disclosed.
Developed by Dr. Kiran Patel, the 391,059 sq. ft. J.W. Marriott Clearwater Beach, a mixed-use development, will feature 167 hotel rooms and 31 furnished residential units at 691 S. Gulfview Blvd.
“We are excited to work with Dr. Patel’s team on another incredible project,” said Toby Manulak, vice president for Moss Construction. “Luxury and quality define the J.W. Marriott brand, and this project will define the Clearwater skyline for years to come.”
Designed by Baker Barrios, the hotel’s amenities include an elevated 11th floor swimming pool and bar, spa, meeting rooms, ballrooms, gym, ocean front restaurant with private dining, approximately 250 feet of private beach, garage parking, and more.
“Clearwater Beach has transformed from America’s most top-rated beaches to a world-class beach destination, and our team is excited to be working with Moss again on another luxury brand hotel beach resort,” said Bill West, director of Development for Enchantment, LLC.
