Another hotel has started construction in downtown Seattle. Stonebridge Companies broke ground on a 302-room Residence Inn by Marriott at 924 Howell St., in the Denny Triangle area.

The site for the 15-story hotel is adjacent to the area where the Washington State Convention Center plans a $1.4 billion expansion.

The hotel will have a 7,000-square-foot conference center, a fitness center and three levels of below-grade parking. Rooms will have kitchenettes and places for extended-stay travelers to work, and there will be a bar in the lobby.

About 1,300 square feet of ground-level retail are planned along Howell Street.

Mortenson Construction expects to finish the hotel by fall of 2017.

Weber Thompson is the design architect, and Johnson Braund is doing construction documents and providing construction administration services. Denver-based Design Force designed the interior.

(Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly said Johnson Braund was the architect.)

Valley Electric is designing and building the electrical, fire alarm and low-voltage systems. Auburn Mechanical is designing and building HVAC, plumbing and controls systems.

Stonebridge is based in the Denver suburb of Centennial, Colorado. It owns, operates and develops hotels across the country, including Hilton Seattle next to the convention center and Residence Inn by Marriott on Washington State University's campus in Pullman.

Mortenson Construction has been busy in the booming Denny Triangle. It is building AMLI Arc, a 41-story apartment tower, for AMLI Residential and Mortenson Development; and Tilt 49, an 11-story office complex for Touchstone and Principal Real Estate Investors.

Last year, Mortenson finished Hill7, which is an office building with an adjoining 222-room Hilton Garden Inn for Touchstone.
