2014

Hotel

Cedarbrook Lodge is undergoing a $16 million expansion. When completed next summer, the boutique hotel will have 63 new rooms, a spa and more parking. The expansion will include a five-story guest-room building and a 3,550-square-foot spa along with a heated outdoor whirlpool. A custom cedar panel will slide over the top when the pool is closed, creating a terrace patio.

Artemis Hotel receives EB-5 designation for foreign investor visa program funding, which had been submitted by Yareton Investment & Management of Washington, LLC, the hotel developer. Artemis will be a four-star, 238-room luxury hotel at 22406 Pacific Highway S. in Des Moines. The Artemis is expected to open in time for the U.S. Open golf tournament at the new Chambers Bay course near Tacoma in June 2015.

Hyatt Place coming to SeaTac: Scheduled to open in early 2016, the hotel will feature 150 rooms, adjacent to nearby Angle Lake Park. Amenities will include a pool, fitness room and 2,500 to 3,500 square feet of meeting space.

17-story hotel/housing complex possibly coming to Tukwila: The buildings would be the highest in the city at about 180 feet tall and comprise approximately 170 hotel rooms and 280 residential units, according to city documents. The developer wants to build the towers at 223 Andover Park E., the former Circuit City site.

New development: Construction of a $30 million, 1,050-stall parking garage and plaza is scheduled to begin this fall, and the garage will open in 2016, along with the Angle Lake light rail station. The City of SeaTac plan for the area is a 10- to 12-story residential, retail and office project that also could have a hotel.

Facilities

The dining hall at Des Moines Beach Park– a popular attraction – will be upgraded with an $850 million grant from the Washington State Historical Society.
