MELBOURNE ― Officials gathered this morning at Melbourne Orlando International Airport (MLB) for the ceremonial groundbreaking of a 143-room Hyatt Place hotel scheduled to open in 2022. The hotel is a key component of the airport’s historic growth and is being developed by ADËLON Capital, headquartered in Hollywood, Florida, and constructed by Certified General Contractors of Melbourne, Florida.
Co-owners ADËLON Capital and Twenty8 group are continuing to invest in the area with what will be a sophisticated five-story, four-star hotel featuring inspired guestrooms and premium suites with energizing design and insightful in-room technology. Amenities include a roof top bar, coffee bar, outdoor swimming pool, multiple outdoor terraces, fitness studio, business center, and a large high-tech multi-space conference center.
AD1 Management will operate and manage the new hotel, adding to its portfolio of 30 hotels predominantly in Florida.
“This new and unique project is the direct result of our creative and persistent entrepreneurial spirit,” said Daniel Berman, president of AD1 Management. “Without any doubt it’s going to be another amazing addition to our growing portfolio of outstanding hotels.”
Jonathan Cohen , ADËLON Capital Founder and Co-Chairman, who manages the pre-development team based in the Mexico branch office added, “The ADËLON team is very excited to begin the construction of such a unique project and to form a part of the continued growth of the city of Melbourne.”
The new hotel will be located on airport property at Air Terminal Parkway and NASA Boulevard. With its proximity to the terminal, the hotel is strategically positioned to eventually add a covered walkway linking passengers between the hotel and terminal. Also proximate to the airfield, it provides the ability to eventually offer customers an opportunity to park their general aviation or corporate aircraft near the hotel and enter directly into the hotel lobby.
“An on-site airport hotel is the perfect addition to the incredible growth we are experiencing on and around MLB property,” said Greg Donovan, airport executive director. “With the development of a great new partnership with ADËLON Capital and Twenty8 group and the expertise from Certified General Contractors, we know that the hotel will be another wonderful asset to our passengers and fulfil this long-awaited need of our blue-chip tenant base.”
The development, designed by Eleven18 Architecture, is expected to create more than 100 jobs during construction and more than 20 operational jobs once opened.
“We are looking forward to breaking ground on this innovative and exciting project,” said Adam Broadway, Certified General Contractors President & CEO. “Getting this project out of the ground has truly been a team effort. This will be CGC’s third project with ADËLON Capital. The Melbourne Airport staff have been great to work with throughout the design and planning phases of the project.”
The Hyatt brand offers a stress-free environment for leisure and business travelers to enjoy a productive and energized experience. Staff will speak multiple languages including English and Spanish.
