A 259-room, dual-branded Marriott hotel is under construction in the 400 block of South Tejon Street in downtown #Colorado Springs. The hotel’s developers slowed the pace of the project during #2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic; it’s now targeted to open in early 2022. CHANCEY BUSH.

The COVID-19 pandemic didn’t stop numerous high-profile construction projects in the Pikes Peak region from making significant progress during 2020, and several remain on track to open their doors this year — though a few won’t cut their ribbons until 2022.

Here’s a look at the status of several of those projects, along with some key business expansions expected in the new year in the Colorado Springs area:

Online retailer Amazon’s mammoth fulfillment center near the Colorado Springs Airport is on schedule for completion in summer 2021 with the hiring of at least 1,000 employees likely to begin about two months before it opens.

The 3.7 million-square-foot center in the airport’s Peak Innovation Park, southeast of Powers Boulevard and Milton E. Proby Parkway, will ship customer orders for books, electronics, toys and other smaller items to the Colorado Springs area, across Colorado and to surrounding states. The five-story building will be the largest in Colorado Springs and likely the state’s largest.
