New Element Hotel to Break Ground at SkySong Thursday, March 15

Construction is slated to begin this month on a 157- room hotel that will provide critical support for the more than 50 businesses that now call Scottsdale’s SkySong home as well as the surrounding Scottsdale community.

An Element hotel, a high-end, boutique addition to the Marriott family of hotels, will soon occupy the southwestern corner of SkySong, the ASU Scottsdale Innovation Center complex near Scottsdale Road and Enterprise Drive.

Developed by Jackson-Shaw, one of the nation’s most notable names in hospitality development, Element covers an expansive, 99,345 square feet of space and provides a highly sustainable, health-focused environment for guests. Boasting 2,170 square feet of communal and meeting space and a 7,572 square-foot open-air courtyard, Element offers a wide variety of amenities for guests, ranging from a natural saline swimming pool to an oversize gym and bike rental opportunities.

“Element hotels rely on green building, sustainable designs and eco-friendly practices, and we’re honored to play a role in bringing a smarter, more environmentally conscious and wellness- focused place to stay in the Scottsdale area,” said Michele Wheeler, President and Chief Operating Officer for Jackson-Shaw. “It offers the elegant, luxurious nature many leisure travelers associate with Scottsdale, but it also serves as a tremendous asset for business and group travelers that will help SkySong and the city draw even more businesses and job opportunities to the area.”
