DANBURY, Conn. -- Construction has begun on Hotel Zero Degrees in Danbury.
A ceremonial groundbreaking took place at the 15 Milestone Road site close to Interstate 84 Friday.
Randy Salvatore, CEO of developer RMS Companies, and Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton were among those who attended the ceremony.
"The corporate and residential growth over the past few years in this area of Connecticut has been astounding and we are looking forward to providing accommodations for business and leisure travelers as well as becoming the central gathering place for restaurant patrons and social groups," Salvatore said.
The hotel is expected to open later this year, making it the third Hotel Zero Degrees location.
The 114-room property, with 27 extended stay suites, was conceived as a modern lodge and plays off of bold contrasts between rugged lodge architecture and contemporary furnishings and finishes.
Its design team is Jonathan Nehmer + Associates, Inc. and HVS Design.
The hotel will have a restaurant serving lunch and dinner operated by Z Hospitality Group.
