Ignite Hotels expects to begin construction in 2023 on a five-story Residence Inn Marriott extended stay hotel at 1123 N. Columbia Center Blvd. in Kennewick.
Ignite, led by Gurbir Sandhu, first announced the project in 2019, saying it intended to build on a six-acre parcel it owns next to the Red Lion Columbia Center, which Ignite also owns.
The property is west of the existing hotel and is used for parking and landscaping,
The $20 million project will have 90 rooms.
Sandhu confirmed the project hasn’t changed since it was first announced.
The extended stay hotel will be west of Columbia Center Boulevard and south of West Quinault Avenue.
Both properties are owned by Sandhu’s Tri-City Hotel Corp., which is affiliated with Kennewick-based Ignite.
Knutzen Engineering is the designer, according to documents submitted through the Washington State Environmental Protection Act, or SEPA, process.
Ignite hired Varitone Architecture of Albany, Oregon, to design it.
