Lawsuit Over Marriott Marquis Construction Dismissed In Federal Court

Marriott Marquis DC

The general contractor of the Marriott Marquis Convention Center had hoped to receive $8.5M from a lawsuit filed against the project's architect, but that litigation has failed. 

A federal judge on Sept. 27 dismissed the lawsuit because of a three-year statute of limitations, the Washington Business Journal reports.

Hensel Phelps Construction had alleged Atlanta-based architect Cooper Carry had committed design flaws that it was forced to fix, causing major cost overruns. 

The $520M, 1.1M SF conference center opened in May 2014 and included 1,175 rooms and the District's largest ballroom. [WBJ]
