R.D. Olson Construction Starts Building of Burbank Hotel
IRVINE, Calif.—R.D. Olson Construction, a leading hotel builder, has begun work on the $30 million Marriott Residence Inn Burbank at 321 South First St. The hotel is part of Burbank’s long-range plans to maintain the city’s presence as a vital hub for businesses and tourists, while maintaining a cohesive viable community.
The five-story, 166-room extended-stay hotel will call for 165,000 square feet of new construction. The U-shaped hotel will house 166 rooms, including four executive, 20 one-bedroom, 16 two-bedroom and 126 studio suites. Additionally, 1,300 square feet will be dedicated to meeting and boardroom space. And, as an added convenience, a fitness center and laundry facilities are in the plans.
“The hotel will be a welcomed addition to the city’s downtown area, catering to visitors of neighboring Walt Disney Company, Warner Bros, NBC, DreamWorks SKG and Nickelodeon studios,” said Robert Olson, CEO/president, R.D. Olson Construction. “It also is a short distance from Burbank City Hall, theaters, restaurants and boutique shops.”
Robert Olson founded R.D. Olson Construction in 1979. It has since grown into one of the largest general contracting companies in California. The company has built establishments for such clients as Marriott, Hilton and Benihana to name a few. Current projects under construction in California include Union Station Village at Los Angeles Union Station; Ocean Ranch shopping center, Laguna Niguel; and Marriott’s Shadow Ridge, Palm Desert. Out of state Olson is working on completing the Benihana, Coral Gables, FL
