Construction begins on the Moxy Hotel in Madison’s fast-growing East Washington Avenue corridor

MADISON, Wis. – Construction has begun on a new hotel in the fast-growing East Washington Avenue corridor.

Officials took part in a groundbreaking ceremony Monday for the new 151-room Moxy Hotel in the 800 block of East Washington Avenue.

The hotel will also have a rooftop restaurant on the ninth floor overlooking Breese Stevens Field as well as event space.

Andrew Inman, vice president of development at North Central Group, said the Moxy, a Marriott brand, is designed for the “pleasure seeker”, adding that its location near some new Madison venues makes it the “perfect ” for the hallway.

“The Moxy Hotel is a perfect complement to all the great things happening in the East Washington Avenue corridor, especially the 800 block of East Washington Avenue,” Inman said. “You’ve got The Sylvee, you’ve got Breese Stevens Field, you’ve got so many exciting things to do here in this block on top of everything going on in downtown Madison.”

The hotel is expected to open in mid to late fall 2023, Inman said.

Work was originally scheduled to begin in fall 2020 before a scheduled opening in 2021.
