The developers of downtown’s 1,005-room JW Marriott convention hotel are planning a topping-off ceremony Dec. 1. The event will include hard-hat tours and remarks from Mayor Greg Ballard and Bruce White of hotel developer White Lodging, which is partnering with REI Investments on the project.

Construction is on schedule for the 34-story hotel, which includes 104,000 square feet of meeting and banquet space. It’s being built at West and Washington streets. It is expected to open in February 2011 and will be the largest JW Marriott in the world.

The $450 million project also features a Courtyard by Marriott, SpringHill Suites and Fairfield Inn & Suites. The new hotels and the existing Marriott Indianapolis Downtown hotel a block away from the new complex will be marketed together as Marriott Place. They will have a total of 2,200 rooms.•
