State and local officials on Monday celebrated the topping out of the 120-room extended stay suite hotel located at 820 S. Justison Street in Wilmington. Homewood Suites by Hilton Hotel is a project of Buccini/Pollin Group (BPG), PM Hotel Group and BPGS Construction.
Guests had the chance to sign the last piece of structure steel, before a crane lifted the beam to the top of the six-story structure.
Speakers included Gov. John Carney, Mayor Mike Purzycki, Megan McGlinchey, executive director of Riverfront Wilmington Development Corporation, City Council President Hanifa Shabazz, Robert Buccini, co-president of The Buccini/Pollin Group and Michael Hare, executive vice president of The Buccini/Pollin Group.
Completion of the project is anticipated for September 2019.
Upon completion, the hotel will be managed by PM Hotel Group, an award-winning hotel management company currently overseeing more than 10,000 rooms throughout the United States.
