Groundbreaking for new Marriott hotel to take place Monday

The groundbreaking for the new hotel where the old Missoula Mercantile was located is scheduled for 2 p.m. Monday.

After much controversy about the demolition of the Missoula Mercantile that ended with an agreement to preserve the pharmacy section of the building, the groundbreaking ceremony for the $37 million Marriott hotel is a start for a long process. The Merc has been out of use since Macy’s closed in 2010, reducing the amount of shoppers downtown along with a loss of some 50 retail jobs. The new Marriott is expected to add around 300 new jobs as well as bring in millions in revenue.

The groundbreaking will take place near the entrance of the Firestone Building. Mayor John Engen, Stockman Bank President Ben Burns, and Downtown Business Partnership's Linda McCarthy are scheduled to speak at the event. The public is invited and encouraged to come listen and watch as the new project begins.

Testimonials

Kyle Graybeal was the listing agent for our Missoula residential property last year. He was exceptional to work with and had our interests at heart through every step of the process. Kyle’s long experience with Missoula real estate and property management made this a very positive process. Kyle was able to accurately predict the correct listing price and timing for our property, and offered his list of reliable sub-contractors to help us do necessary repairs and upgrades prior to listing. He kept us promptly informed throughout the showings and offerings and was present at closing. He exhibited patience, dispassionate selling advice and technical knowledge about the process. I would recommend him without hesitation, and will utilize his experience and skills again.
