McCarthy Breaks Ground on $23M Boutique Hotel at Nebraska Innovation Campus
LINCOLN, NEB. — McCarthy Building Cos. Inc. has broken ground on a six-story boutique hotel at Lincoln’s Nebraska Innovation Campus, an expansive research community designed to facilitate partnerships between the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and private-sector businesses. Developed by Goldenrod Cos., the $23 million project will be a Marriott Tribute hotel with 154 rooms. Marriott Tribute hotels are independent, boutique properties that embrace the character and personality of their surroundings. In this case, the design aesthetic will celebrate the state of Nebraska, the university and its fans. A 10,000-square-foot portion of the hotel’s first level will be designated as educational and amenity spaces for the University of Nebraska’s hospitality, tourism and restaurant management students. Other amenities will include a full-service restaurant, rooftop bar, coffee shop, fitness center and a private dining area on the top floor known as the Founders Room. DLR Group designed the hotel. Completion is slated for fall 2021.
