As a trusted advisor, Parkhill was selected to assist as the representative for both the  City of Odessa and Eofficial Enterprises, Inc. in the completion of the Odessa Marriott Hotel and Convention Center. The hotel is the first full-service, nationally branded hotel with a large conference center and ballroom in this region of Texas. The project honors the past while being a catalyst for development in the future of downtown Odessa as it blends a new 216-room hotel with a full-service convention center and the historic Ector Theater that was renovated as part of the overall development.

The City of Odessa and Eofficial Enterprises teamed in a public-private partnership to fund and execute the development of the project. Parkhill assisted the two owners in management and coordination with the developer, architect and contractor who was hired as a design-build team to develop, design and construct the facility. The role included coordination and review of the facility program, design, schedule, materials selection and construction. During construction and project close-out and move-in, Parkhill provided on-site representatives to evaluate progress, approve pay applications and assist in communication and coordination.

The public-private partnership was truly about Building Community in Downtown Odessa.
