9 checkoutand checkin Montclair, NJ has been without a hotel since the Hotel Montclair closed in 1938. That’s about to change with the long-awaited and highly-an- ticipated opening of The MC Hotel, part of Marriott’s Autograph Collec- tion, in 2018. With 151 guest rooms, a farm-to-table restaurant, rooftop lounge with panoramic views of Manhattan, a luxury spa and 13,000-square-feet of event and conference center space, The MC Hotel will serve visitors to the region who wish to stay in centrally located Montclair. And why not take advantage of the town’s many culinary and cultural offerings? From its location at the intersection of Bloomfield Avenue and Orange Road, guests can walk to dozens of restaurants as well the Montclair Art Museum and The Wellmont Theater, or drive a few miles to cultural events at Montclair State University and the Meadowlands. Construction Pros was hired by Montclair-based developers, The Pinnacle Companies, to create the Super Structure System for the 120,000-square-foot project. “We will be pre-engineering, designing and fabricating a load-bearing wall panel system at our facility in Bridgewater,” explains Al Best, Man- aging Partner, Construction Pros. “Working off-site will speed up the process significantly, basically cutting in half our time on the job site.” The MC Hotel is the latest Montclair project for Construction Pros, which recently completed work at the Montclairion II as well as Valley and Bloom. “It will be more than just a hotel,”says Best. “With a restaurant, spa, gal- lery and event space, it’s going to be a part of daily life for area residents.” THE MC HOTEL Bloomfield Avenue and Orange Road Montclair, NJ Opening: 2018 8-story hotel ROLE OF CONSTRUCTION PROS •  Super Structure System •  Load bearing wall panels •  Comslab deck system •  Light gauge metal framing •  Insulation •  Drywall
