Coastal Construction is about halfway through building a four-star J.W. Marriott hotel in the Water Street neighborhood of Tampa. The company broke ground during summer 2018 and topped out on the hotel in July 2019, about three weeks ahead of schedule.

Tampa Division President Craig Klingensmith expects to have “heads in beds” by Halloween of 2020.
