4 finalists to bid on Denver convention-hotel project
Denver Post

DENVER – Four hotel operators survived the first cut for the chance to run Denver's proposed convention-center hotel. Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott and Westin were selected to submit bids to run the hotel that Denver officials want to build on a site near the Colorado Convention Center. City officials expect to pick two finalists in June and hope to open the convention-center hotel by early 2006. Earlier this year, the city scrapped an arrangement with private hotel developer Bruce Berger because he could not guarantee an opening date. In that deal, Berger proposed a 1,100-unit, $285 million Hyatt Hotel on the block bounded by 14th, 15th, California and Welton streets.

LYNWOOD, Wash. – General Growth Properties has unveiled plans to add two outdoor retail areas and a movie-theater complex to its Alderwood Mall by late 2004 in a bid to make the property the dominant shopping and entertainment hub of Seattle's northern suburbs. The Chicago-based firm last year filed preliminary plans with the city to expand the mall by roughly 50 percent to about 1.5 million square feet.
