SHELTON, Conn. — (July 16, 2018)—Pouring the final slab of rooftop concrete, officials of New Castle Hotels & Resorts, a leading hotel owner, operator and developer, along with Southwest Properties of Halifax, Nova Scotia and JLK Global Fund International marked the structure complete milestone on a 190-key Courtyard by Marriott/Residence Inn hotel in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

The project, scheduled to open in January 2019, will include a 106-room Courtyard by Marriott and an 84-suite Residence Inn in the Dartmouth Crossing lifestyle center and in close proximity to the Burnside Business Park, the largest eastern seaboard business park north of Boston or east of Montreal. The park is home to 2000 enterprises and more than 30,000 employees.

“Halifax regional tourism is on a steady growth trajectory, having increased nearly six percent in 2017 and more than 23 percent since 2012,” said Guido Kerpel vice president of operations for New Castle. “Our Hampton Inn and Suites in the same area has far exceeded everyone’s expectations, so we feel confident that two strategically selected Marriott hotels will go a long way to meet the varied needs of a large swath of the travelling public, in particular, the points-conscious business traveler,”

New Castle and Southwest have partnered previously on the Residence Inn Moncton, New Brunswick, the Hampton Inn and Suites by Hilton Halifax-Dartmouth in Nova Scotia and The Algonquin Resort in St. Andrews, New Brunswick.
