Marriott International, Inc. is collaborating with developer BPM Real Estate Group to bring its Ritz-Carlton brand to Portland and the Pacific Northwest for the first time.

Under the new agreement, the brand would manage 251 hotel rooms and 138 residential units – including eight penthouses – within a nearly $600 million, 35-story tower. Construction is expected to begin in 2019. The property is slated to open in in early 2023.

The hotel and residences will be situated in BPM’s planned mixed-use tower: a site with high-end office space, retail space and a ground-level food hall. Guests will be just a few blocks from Pioneer Courthouse Square, a highly frequented tourist destination in Oregon, and the shopping destination Pioneer Place. It is also within walking distance of Portland’s central business district and the Pearl District.
