Franklin Staybridge Suites is open, construction on downtown location halted

Two different Staybridge Suites hotel developments are experiencing very different fates.

The 118-room Staybridge Suites hotel at the southwest corner of Ryan Road and South 27th Street in Franklin opened recently.

Meanwhile, construction of a 14-story mixed-use building including a Staybridge Suites hotel, being built by Park Ridge, Ill.-based Economou Partners at the southeast corner of Water Street and Juneau Avenue in downtown Milwaukee has been halted for weeks. Economou recently shifted the 31 condominiums in the project to apartments and is adding a few suites to the hotel. Completion of the construction project has been delayed several times.

Four subcontractors have filed construction liens against the downtown project. Brookfield-based Uihlein Electric Company Inc. says it is owed $533,869 for electrical and communications work. Oak Creek-based Black Diamond Inc. says it is owed $23,712 for asphalt paving. Milwaukee-based Otis Elevator Company says it is owed $191,005 for elevator installation work. Waukesha-based Spancrete Inc. says it is owed $426,743.

John Economou, principal of Economou Partners, could not be reached for comment.

A Staybridge Suites hotel is also being built in the Pabst Farms development in Oconomowoc.
