  • 10-story full-service hotel set to move forward in Bricktown

    After more than two years of delays, the much anticipated Marriott Renaissance project in Bricktown is moving forward.

    OKCTalk was first to report the plans in February of 2017, but then the project stalled with the developer Andy Patel being noncommittal about the hotel's future.

    But yesterday, Patel refiled his design plans for the site at Sheridan and Oklahoma, as the previous approval had expired.

    Lisa Chronister of the Oklahoma City Planning Department said that Patel is seeking to have the building permits issued so he can start work, but first needed to have the design reapproved by planning.

    Patel told the planning department that the original plans have not changed, which called for a 10-story building of brick and bronze metal cladding with 182 guest rooms.

    Unlike most the hotels that have opened in Bricktown and the central core in the last few years, the new Marriott Renaissance would be a full-service facility with an on-site restaurant, a concierge, room service and other luxury amenities.

    The high-profile corner is known for a huge flagpole and American flag that was recently put back into service. Patel's plans call for the flagpole and surface parking to be demolished.

    As detailed in our Downtown Hotel Summary, the new Marriott Renaissance would add to the 2,946 current room total in the urban core, with 887 more rooms under construction, including the 605-room Omni convention hotel.

    As building permits had been filed and approved some time ago, construction could start relatively quickly.
