The 45-acre Delano Marketplace development is already well underway with a power center anchored by Walmart, Big 5 Sporting Goods and Ross Dress for Less, but there’s much more to come.
On Wednesday, developer YK America broke ground for another phase of the project — the Vineyard Lifestyle Center and an adjacent Hyatt Place Hotel.
Plans call for the lifestyle center to include a 12-screen movie theater and 330,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space. The hotel is to have 100 rooms and 4,000 square feet of meeting space.
The hotel is slated to open next year, and the lifestyle center is expected to be finished in 2017. When it’s all complete, the entire marketplace project is expected to create about 2,000 jobs, the developer and city officials said.
City, county and state dignitaries praised the project at Wednesday’s ground breaking, which included executives from YK America’s El Monte headquarters and a large contingent of investors who flew in from China.
