Construction continues for a new Residence Inn by Marriott at the northern edge of Old Town Pasadena.

The project, which is being developed by real estate and construction firm R.D. Olson, will feature 144 extended-stay guest rooms and approximatley 1,000 square feet of meeting space.  Planned amenities include a fitness center, an on-site market, a breakfast area and an elevated pool-and-spa deck.

According to a 2014 press release, designs from ACRM Architects call for a five-story structure with stylings that evoke a "playful rendition of the arts and crafts heritage of Old Town Pasadena."  The Mediterranean architecture will feature parapets and tiled gable roofs, plaster walls, and large multi-story windows which allow natural light to enter the building.

Interior designs from the Seattle-based firm Degen & Degen call for modern furnishings using natural materials such as dark wood, brick and stone.

The hotel, located at the intersection of Fair Oaks Avenue and East Walnut Street, is on pace for completion in 2016.

The project is situated immediately north of the headquarters of the Parsons Corporation, a global engineering and design firm.  A joint venture lead by Lincoln Property Company, which acquired the 22-acre site in 2014, plans to construction a one-million-square-foot development on the property.
