Ryan Companies US, Inc. construction team and subcontractors gathered on Nov. 5 to celebrate the topping out of Canopy by Hilton in Scottsdale with a beam signing. The project is situated at the northeast corner of First Street and Marshall Way, immediately east of the Museum of the West, within the Scottsdale Arts District and adjacent to gallery row.

Construction began in February 2019 and is anticipated to be completed in summer 2020. The 204,810 square foot, seven-story hotel will include 177 guestrooms, a rooftop bar, 3,000 square feet of banquet/group meeting room space and a pool and spa.

“Canopy by Hilton is a very significant project on the east side of Scottsdale Road,” said Chuck Carefoot, senior vice president of construction with Ryan Companies US, Inc. “Canopy is really the kickoff of what we hope is the revitalization of the arts district in Old Town Scottsdale. Canopy is also in an opportunity zone, so hopefully it will be a catalyst for future projects.”

“We’ve been working with property owners for a number of years on this side of Old Town, so it’s great to see that front-end effort come to fruition for our team to build an amenity like this that is a new brand, lifestyle hotel,” Carefoot said. “We and our client believes that there’s a significant need regardless of the season.”

Carefoot said he was recently talking to people who were in town from San Francisco and mentioned they like to stay in the Old Town Scottsdale area when visiting, but there’s limited options in the area — Carefoot said Canopy will change that.

Canopy by Hilton in Old Town Scottsdale is the first Canopy hotel in Arizona and will join 11 existing Canopy by Hilton Hotels in locations across the U.S. and internationally.

Developer and owner of the project is Miller Global Properties, Inc. / MG-Scottsdale, LLC; General Contractor is Ryan Companies US, Inc.; Architect of Record is DAVIS and interior design is Studio 11.
