International Partners Open New Hotel & Luxury Apartments in Seattle

Seattle – International partners Binjiang Real Estate Group and Molasky Group of Companies celebrated the grand opening of Arrivé Seattle and The Sound Hotel at a ribbon cutting ceremony on February 26, 2019. Special guests included former Washington Governor Gary Locke, who also served as Ambassador to China and Jenna Hackett, Global Brand Head for Tapestry Collection by Hilton.

The 43-story tower is the newest for-rent mixed-use property in the market and blends exceptional apartment living with 344 high-end luxury units, The Sound Hotel offering 142 trendy hotel rooms, and Instagram-able food and drink options at Currant Bistro.

“Every aspect of Arrivé is designed and constructed with intentionality and thoughtfulness toward our customers,” says Mike Doran, project executive for The Molasky Group, the development partner with Binjiang Real Estate Group. “The construction team worked tirelessly to bring this asset online in 27 months, and the project partners worked in conjunction to bring an outstanding blend of apartment units, hotel rooms, and amenities to market. From its seven levels of subterranean parking to the breathtaking views at the penthouse units and roof-top amenity, Arrivé has a lot to offer people who want to live or lodge in downtown Seattle.”

Designed to be a vibrant property, The Sound Hotel shares an active lobby with Arrivé and celebrates the sights, sounds, and tastes that are unique to Seattle. Its 142 exquisitely designed, well-appointed guest rooms occupy the first ten floors of the building, some offering expansive views. The hotel features the ground level restaurant Currant Bistro and a full-service, grab & go coffee bar. For meetings, the hotel’s 7th Floor offers the Lupine Room: 770 square feet of divisible meeting space ideal for groups of up to 50, as well as Sound Bite Lounge, a relaxed, post-meeting gathering spot with seasonal outdoor seating and unobstructed views of the Space Needle. The Sound Hotel is the first Tapestry by Hilton in the state of Washington for Hilton Hotels and Resorts and will be managed by The Hotel Group, a leading national hotel management and investment company.

“We think that the warm, rich textures and theming in the rooms and amenities offers guests an authentic vibe reminiscent of Belltown’s musical roots,” says David Watkins, general manager for The Sound Hotel.

The top thirty-one floors of the building feature 344 apartments with a range of floor plans from studios to three bedroom/three bath units professionally managed and operated by Seattle-based Blanton Turner. All apartments have large windows showcasing Seattle’s cityscape and natural beauty with many, especially the penthouses, offering spectacular views of Elliot Bay and Lake Union.

Understated elegance defines Arrivé where residents can select from two designer-finish palettes to complement their personal style and décor. Each thoughtfully-designed residence includes air conditioning, quartz surfaces, modern kitchens with professional appliances and gas ranges. Select units include private terraces, walk-in closets, under-cabinet lighting and French-door refrigerators with PureAir filtration systems. Penthouse units have exclusive color palettes and include waterfall islands, Miele appliances, and cabinets by California Closets. Lighting, thermostats, and window treatments are controlled from a smartphone with instant connectivity to Z-Wave technology. All residents can take advantage of community spaces to host private gatherings or enjoy a glass of wine with friends on the spacious rooftop lounge with indoor/outdoor kitchen and bar. Energy efficient lighting is used throughout the building, which is targeting LEED Silver certification.

Arrivé was developed by China-based Binjiang Real Estate Group and Las Vegas-based The Molasky Group of Companies. The general contractor is Denver, CO-based PCL, the sixth largest contractor in the United States. The architect is Weber Thompson, Seattle’s most notable architectural firm. The Los Angeles office of Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA), the world leader in interior design, created the signature décor at Arrivé.

City of Las Vegas to Get New Courthouse

The Molasky Group Partners With City of Las Vegas To Develop Municipal Courthouse

LAS VEGAS  – The city council approved a development agreement with The Molasky Group of Companies to develop the City of Las Vegas Municipal Courthouse in the civic corridor of downtown Las Vegas.

The four-story, 139,431 sq. ft. development will be located on approximately one acre at the SW corner of Clark Avenue and 1st Street. Sited to the southeast of the Las Vegas City Hall, the Municipal Courthouse is designed to complement City Hall while starting to create a complex of City facilities. The site is located near the City parking garage, the Detention Center, and the Regional Justice Center. The Courthouse is designed to meet LEED Silver level requirements and will be built for approximately $56.3M.

Joining The Molasky Group on the development team are: Martin Harris Construction as general contractor, PGAL as lead architect, X-9 Design Group as design architects, Walter P. Moore as structural engineer, MS Engineering for MEP and ITS, and GCW Engineering as civil engineers.

“It is exciting that a new courthouse is coming to the government corridor in downtown Las Vegas,” Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman said. “The Molasky Group has been a longtime private-sector partner and we look forward to having a first-class Municipal Courthouse to serve the people of Las Vegas.”

“It is an honor for the Molasky Group and our development team to partner with the City of Las Vegas to build the new municipal courthouse,’ says Rich Worthington, president and chief operating officer. “The City has longed for a courthouse and we plan on providing municipal judges, staff and city residents with a state of the art facility where justice can be served proudly.”

The four-story facility will house the City’s Municipal Court functions including Traffic Court, six additional Courtrooms, City Attorney’s office, customer service, court administration, classrooms and public space.  Included in a sub-basement level will be secure parking and a sally port for prisoner transportation.

Construction is scheduled to commence around August 2019 and will bring more than 150 construction jobs to downtown Las Vegas. The project will be complete by January 2021.

“The new Municipal Court project is just another example of the exciting things happening in the downtown,” said City Manager Scott Adams. “It’s why many are calling this a time where downtown lights up!”

“This is opportunity to have a more efficiently designed facility that will allow our Municipal Court to better serve the current and future needs of the citizens of the city of Las Vegas,” said Municipal Court Administrator Dana Hlavac. “The close proximity to the Regional Justice Center and the Supreme Court building will allow for a continued strong level of cooperation and communication among all levels of the judiciary.”

For Irwin Molasky, founder and chairman of the Molasky Group, the new municipal courthouse is a very special project that intertwines with a lifetime love and respect for the Rule of Law. He is a founder of Project REAL (Real Education About the Law), a non-profit organization that has educated nearly 40,000 schoolchildren on democracy and their rights; he served on the board of directors for the National Judicial College and has been honored by the Nevada Supreme Court for his knowledge and love of the law.

$62.4 Million Project Will Bring New VA Medical Clinic to Columbus Area’s 30,000 Veterans

By Tony Adams tadams@ledger-enquirer.com
By UnitedHealthcare

After years of waiting, the 30,000 military veterans in Columbus and the surrounding Chattahoochee Valley area are finally getting a new primary care and mental health clinic as part of a $62.4 million project, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs said Thursday.

Construction on the 55,000-square-foot outpatient clinic at 2357 Warm Springs Road is scheduled to begin in early 2019, with an estimated completion date in spring 2021.

That address is the 12-acre site of the former Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia office, which was closed after the insurance company relocated its Columbus operations center to Muscogee Technology Park on the northeast side of the city in late 2015. That construction project was valued at $76 million.

VA said that PH LLC, doing business as Molasky Group of Companies Inc., based in Las Vegas, Nev., has been awarded the $62.4 million contract to develop the Columbus outpatient clinic. Blue Cross turned the nearly six-decade-old Warm Springs Road property over to the company after moving into its new state-of-the-art office.

Just as Blue Cross is leasing its current 235,000-square-foot building from Molasky Group long term, Veterans Affairs will be doing so as well over 20 years with the Las Vegas development firm, the agency said.

Barnett gets final build-out approval

Construction fencing is in place, interiors are prepped, other work has been done and now Danis Builders LLC earned the city’s approval to build-out the historic Barnett National Bank Building Downtown in preparation for tenants.

“This is the final building permit that takes us all the way to completion,” developer Steve Atkins said Monday. 

The permit covers the core and shell of the 18-story building. There will be additional permitting for the interior build-out space for office and retail tenants and for the 108 apartments planned on floors eight to 18.

Atkins said the project is on track. He said the shell of the building should be completed into a white-box state by late summer, followed by interior space build-out by the end of the year for the University of North Florida on the fourth and fifth floors.

UNF said in October it plans to lease up to about 13,300 square feet of space to create the Entrepreneurial Development and Business Incubation Center and to house undergraduate and graduate-level classes.

There’s a New Place to Live in Goose Hollow

Portland, OR – There’s a new place to live in one of Portland’s oldest neighborhoods. North Hollow, a new 121-unit multi-family project in Portland’s charming Goose Hollow neighborhood, is now offering a mix of studios, one- and two-bedroom units.

Located at 1551 SW Taylor, North Hollow is perfectly situated for people who prefer the vibe of a downtown experience to those who relish the great outdoors and hiking trails. Found next to Hotel deLuxe, the building design takes inspiration from the neighborhood’s historic past with a traditional tri-partite design, the use of contextual materials, and ornate metal elements in the canopies and balconies. The developers are seeking LEED Silver certification.

Apartment homes in the six-story building range from 498 square feet to 1,025 square feet and include wood plank flooring, spacious kitchen cabinetry, quartz countertop, stainless steel appliances, washer/dryers and easy-care bathrooms.

Resident amenities include bike storage, an expansive community lounge with courtyard, and a rooftop terrace with views of downtown and West Hills. The community lounge, adjacent to the lobby, offers multiple intimate spaces through the use of differentiating interior finishes and furniture offering a kitchen, living room, and garden-inspired seating where residents can connect and interact both indoors and out. A state of the art fitness center will be completed in early summer to complete the amenity offering at North Hollow.

Pacific Northwest-based artist Olivia Knapp pays homage to the neighborhood’s storied past by creating an expansive mural featuring two geese. The mural is part of an interactive projection system that makes the geese look like they are flying through the air in different places and settings in Oregon.

North Hollow was developed by Las Vegas-based The Molasky Group of Companies and Portland-based Langley Group. The architect is SERA and the property is being managed and marketed by Avenue 5 Residential. For more information visit www.northhollowpdx.com

The Molasky Group Develops String of Properties from Seattle to Jacksonville

LAS VEGAS — The Molasky Group is developing a string of properties that will bring new rental units, retail spaces and hotel keys to multiple markets.

The company broke ground on four developments in the past twenty-four months in Portland, Seattle and Los Angeles and will soon embark on a redevelopment of a historic series of buildings in Jacksonville, Florida.

“Our company is actively in development on projects from the Pacific Northwest to the Gulf Coast,” says Rich Worthington, president and chief executive officer for The Molasky Group of Companies. “Some are design builds that came on line relatively quickly; others have been in the works for several years. Regardless of the circumstance, our company and partners are committed to more than $450M in construction.”

The Molasky Group has been in business for more than 65 years and is best known for building many of modern Las Vegas’s construction firsts – master-planned community, apartments, hospital, enclosed mall and office tower. These accomplishments set the stage for the Molasky Group to work on a national level, building large-scale projects for the federal government including six field offices for the FBI and projects for the IRS, Social Security Administration, National Archives and Records Administration and Veterans Affairs.

The company has gradually increased its presence in private sector work, especially multifamily, as a purposeful strategy to complement its prolific public-private-partnership portfolio.

In June, Sky 3 (http://www.sky3pdx.com/) became the company’s first project to come on-line with 194 units and 15,000 square feet of retail in downtown Portland, Oregon.  Sky 3 adds values to the urban core by offering efficient units and high-quality amenities in a sustainable environment. Ground floor retail includes local coffee roaster Coava and online retailer Amazon is opening a package delivery and drop-off concept specific to universities as Portland State University is within walking distance.

Several blocks away, the company, along with local partner Langley Investment Properties, is putting the finishing touches on North Hollow.  The 121-unit 6-story multi-family complex complements Portland’s charming Goose Hollow neighborhood.

The Harrison (http://www.harrisonglendale.com/) will come on line in by the end of 2017 bringing 164 units to the Los Angeles submarket of Glendale.  Sustainable design with a 15,000 square foot CVS Pharmacy on the ground floor that includes a drive-thru prescription drop-off and pick-up lane. Sustainably designed with a look and style to meet the sophisticated demands of the LA market, The Harrison offers a mix of studio, 1 and 2 bedroom units with high-grade resort inspired amenities.

Currently under construction in the Belltown district of Seattle by joint venture development partners The Molasky Group + Binjiang Tower Corp. is Arrivé (http://arriveseattle.com/). When it opens in 2019, the 41-story building will be one of the first for-rent mixed-use properties in downtown Seattle with ground level retail, an upscale hotel, well-amenitized apartments and secure below grade parking.  It is adjacent to the landmark Seattle Cinerama on 4th Avenue and only two blocks from Amazon’s three million square foot headquarters. Formerly known as Potala Tower, the property was revitalized by a substantial new investment by the joint venture development partners, as well as a recommitment of EB5 investor capital. The general contractor is Denver, CO-based PCL, the sixth largest contractor in the United States. The architect is Weber Thompson, Seattle’s most notable architectural firm. The Los Angeles office of Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA), the world leader in interior design, is creating the signature decor at Arrivé.

The Molasky Group and SouthEast Development Group will soon restore downtown Jacksonville’s historic Barnett Building and the Laura Street Trio structures. Architect Edward H. Glidden designed the oldest of the three buildings in the Classical Revival (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classical_Revival) style. The Bisbee Building was constructed between 1908 and 1909, and it was designed by prominent Jacksonville architect Henry J. Klutho (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_J._Klutho) in a Chicago School (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicago_School_(architecture)) – influenced Prairie Style (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prairie_Style). The third structure, The Florida Life Building, was also designed by Klutho, between 1911 and 1912.

The deal moved forward when the Jacksonville City Council approved $9.8M in economic incentives. Molasky and SouthEast plan a total of $78 million work of work to build apartments, restaurants, a bank, hotel and bodega market. The developers would also build an adjacent parking garage. The Trio structures, comprising the Florida Life Building, the Bisbee Building, and the old Marble Bank Building, include about 72,000 square feet of general office space and 10,000 square feet of commercial and retail space. Plans include a Courtyard by Marriott hotel, bodega market, café, restaurant, rooftop bar and retail office space. The Barnett Bank building will be converted into 50,000 square feet of office space and 100+ apartments. A 550-space, $11 million parking garage also is part of the project and will be built by the developers on property the city owns at Adams and Laura streets.
