The developers behind a new $50 million hotel project on Jefferson Parish’s West Bank are set to begin construction.

Harvey-based BN Management will break ground Wednesday on a 123-room Marriott-branded Courtyard Inn that will be built on an 11-acre tract of land between Whitney Avenue and the West Bank Expressway. The hotel is the first phase of a larger development on the property, which is situated just over the Orleans Parish line. Future phases will include additional hotels and other commercial and retail activity.

Hi-Tech Commercial Contractors, a subsidiary of BN Management, are the general contractors for the project. Construction is expected to take between 14 and 16 months.

BN Management operates hotels in New Orleans, Marrero, Harvey, Chalmette and Berwick, and it also has a site in the works along Panama City Beach, Fla. The Gretna hotel would be the company’s 10th development.
