Three-Company Partnership to Develop 173-Key Moxy Hotel in Oakland

OAKLAND, CALIF. — A partnership between EJF Capital, San Francisco-based Tidewater Capital and Minneapolis-based Graves Hospitality plans to develop Marriott International’s new Moxy hotel in the Uptown neighborhood of Oakland.

EJF is providing equity capital for the project primarily from EJF OpZone Fund I LP, a fund formed by the global alternative asset manager to invest in new construction projects within opportunity zones.

Slated to open in 2021, the hotel will feature 173 guest rooms, high-speed Wi-Fi and an active lobby with bar and lounge areas. The $50 million investment is expected to generate 50 permanent jobs for the Uptown Oakland area, which qualifies as an Opportunity Zone under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Acts of 2017.

Moxy is Marriott’s newest brand and is a three-star boutique hotel targeted toward millennials. There are currently 14 Moxy hotels in operation in the United States, 39 in Europe and three in Asia.
