Kellogg & Kimsey, Inc. Celebrates Topping Out in Tampa, FL


Tampa, FL

March 31, 2016

In honor of the building reaching its full eight story height, Kellogg & Kimsey, Inc. hosted a “Topping Out Ceremony” Wednesday, March 30, 2016 for the Hampton Inn & Suites Tampa Airport Avion Park Westshore in Tampa, FL. The project team, developers and subcontractors were joined by local business leaders for a BBQ lunch following the placement of an American flag on top of the building.

“Kellogg & Kimsey, Inc.  is excited to build another high quality Hilton hotel for McKibbon Hospitality in the very successful Avion Park complex,” said Charles Kimsey, Vice President of Kellogg & Kimsey, Inc. “We are delighted to be at the topping out stage and right on schedule.”

The 110,375 square foot hotel developed by McKibbon Hospitality will feature 178 guest rooms, meeting space, a fitness room, a fire pit and pool. This is the 11th project in the Tampa area for McKibbon and this is the eighth project in which McKibbon has partnered with Kellogg & Kimsey, Inc.. Kellogg & Kimsey, Inc. is a national hospitality contractor that has built over 4,000 rooms of hospitality in the past few years, including several of the Hilton limited service brands such as Hampton Inn & Suites, Homewood Suites, Hilton Garden Inn & Embassy Suites.

“It is not very frequent in the development industry to still be doing business with the same contractor for ten years unless something good has happened,” said McKibbon’s Erik Rowen, Vice President of Development. “This is our eighth hotel with Kellogg & Kimsey, Inc. We did a similar hotel down in Orlando and it is nice to see continuity between our projects.”
