The Laszlo hotel broke ground July 30, marking the beginning stages of a much larger development plan for the west side of Mainstreet.
The development, dubbed the West End on Mainstreet, is planned to be a destination for public art, modern restaurants, entertainment venues and community gathering spaces, similar to areas like the Cherry Creek shopping center, Denver's 16th Street Mall and Boulder's Pearl Street. The new development will be separated from the historic, east end of Mainstreet by Parker Road.
The Laszlo will be a high-end, four-story, 51-room boutique hotel and is currently under construction in front of the AMC theater on Stage Run Road. Natalya Weigel, marketing director for Parker-based Trevey Land and Commercial, the site developer, said a couple tenants will be announced soon.
“It will be really nice to bring a sense of community into the Parker area,” Weigel said.
Weigel added there is a possibility of some local businesses relocating to the West End on Mainstreet area, and said the tenant list will consist exclusively of local businesses.
The Laszlo is expected to be completed by summer of next year. The hotel itself will have a steak and seafood restaurant, sports bar, martini and oyster bar, diner, tap room and rooftop seating area, according to a news release sent Aug. 7.
“One of the goals is to present Mainstreet as a place to visit,” said John Fussa, the town's director of community development. “They visit Parker, they stay at the hotel, they will likely patronize those surrounding businesses and get the good word out about the town.”
The West End on Mainstreet, according to the press release, will combine high-end office space, retail and restaurants, the AMC movie theater and walkways to green space and an arts and entertainment district.
The area being developed is currently surrounded by businesses. Apartment complexes line the south side of Mainstreet, opposite of the current development site of the Laszlo.
Fussa said the Laszlo will be integral in the town's plans to develop that area.
“We see (Mainstreet) as one of the main things that gives us character and separates us from other communities,” Fussa said. “We think it will improve the appearance and character of downtown by its amenities and by its commercial entities it has in it.”
