Feasibility Study for Hotel Project

Feasibility Study for Hotel Project

Feasibility study for hotel project at LAX in Los Angeles, including market analysis, a relative order-of-magnitude (“ROM”) capital budget, facilities recommendations, and financial projections.   Our financial projections included several scenarios to estimate varying potential operating results depending upon the build-out and facilities enhancement program at Los Angeles International Airport.

 

As hotel development consultants we provided a project feasibility report, including market analysis with financial projections, facility recommendations, and hotel franchise affiliation recommendations, for this (then) planned commercial hotel situated along Century Boulevard at the Los Angeles International (LAX) Airport.

 

The facility was eventually designed for 747 guest rooms within a 12-floor building envelope.  An interesting aspect of the hotel feasibility analysis was identifying the facilities and amenities to attract business travelers to stay in the airport area rather than the extensive overnight accommodations available throughout Los Angeles.

 

Our work was prepared for Watt High-Rise, Inc., then an operating division of the Watt Companies. Inc.  headquartered in Santa Monica, California.   Watt Companies has developed a diversified portfolio of real estate properties, including commercial real estate, hotels, and master-planned communities.

 

The property opened as a Stouffer Hotel and was later re-flagged as The Westin Los Angeles Airport.   Our work as development feasibility consultants in preparing the project feasibility study for this hotel project, was completed prior to the branding change from Stouffer branding to Westin.

For this hotel development consulting assignment, interesting site design issues included significant elevation changes between the lake shore part of the site and the upper site hilltop.

Project Feasibility Study for Resort – Molokai Island

Confidential Client  |  As hotel-resort development consultants, we provided a resort project feasibility study with financial projections and capital budgeting, along with select development due diligence items.   For a proposed resort on the mauka side of Kamehameha V Highway east of Kaunakakai on the island of Moloka’i.   StoneCreek has worked with clients throughout the Hawaiian Islands preparing due diligence reviews for proposed acquisitions, conceptual approaches to resort development, and project feasibility studies for resorts, shopping centers, and planned communities.

 

Most of the history of the first Hawaiians in Molokai comes from chants, passed down from generation to generation, which have kept a chronology of events, battles and lineage. Captain James Cooke signed Molokai in November 1778, on his first visit to the region – the Sandwich Islands as he called them. Captain George Dixon in 1786 was the first European to actually set foot on and visit Molokai.  Hawaiians first migrated to Molokai about 650 A.D., generally considered to have come first from the Marquesas, then in double hulled canoes from Tahiti and other South Pacific islands.

 

On the Hawaiian islands, feasibility studies for resorts can become complex, with sensibility for cultural and historical factors of Native Hawaiians requiring – always required.   This project feasibility study for resort was no exception.
