The developer of a proposed Marriott Hotel in downtown Milwaukee has reached an agreement with the Memphis-based Davidson Hotel Co. to manage the property.
Evan Zeppos, a spokesman for Milwaukee-based developer Jackson Street Management LLC, said the agreement with Davidson is contingent on the Common Council approving plans for the $50 million Marriott. The council is expected to vote on the controversial proposal Wednesday.
Davidson, Zeppos said, would be in charge of the hotel’s day-to-day operations under the agreement.
The hotel, which would be built at East Wisconsin Avenue and North Milwaukee Street, is designed to have 200 rooms. Although development plans require the razing of five historic buildings now on the site, the facade on the Wisconsin Avenue side would be re-created.
