This Hip New Hotel Promises To Be A Millennial Hot Spot

The final plans for the development of a ten-story building at 800 N. High have been released.

Crawford Hoying, a real estate company based in Dublin, acquired the land for $4.1 million last year. They’re partnering with Marriott International Inc. to construct a 118-room Moxy hotel. The building will have a ground-floor restaurant and a class A office space.

For my fellow real estate illiterates out there, a class A office space generally means its new, high-quality, and well-located. Parking will be valet-only. There will also be a rooftop bar, so you can look out over the city while you sip on some beverages with your pals. I would call that drinking with style.

Construction will begin this fall and should be completed by Spring 2019. There are currently Moxy hotels in a couple states and Europe, but Marriott has a number of them slated to open in the next couple years.

“After reviewing the concept, we knew 800 North High would offer a new mix of uses in the corridor, contributing further vibrancy to the Short North,” Jason Sudy, the Italian Village commission chair, said in a press release.

If you haven’t heard of Moxy hotels, it’s the millennial-focused hotel line Marriott launched in 2014. The name was inspired by the word “moxie,” which suggests a certain energy or pep. They’ve branded it as young, chic, and affordable. Thank God we won’t have to give up our avocado toast.
