Walls are going up and roofs are going down on two construction projects currently underway in Klamath Falls.

Fairfield Inn

The Fairfield Inn is still slated to open in mid-June 2020, catching up after inclement weather led to some delays.

The hotel will be a 92-room Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott at TimberMill Shores, located off Klamath Avenue, near Veterans Memorial Park, in downtown Klamath Falls.

The construction crew is laying down the roof on the project now, and plumbing and electric installation will begin next.

The Inn is recruiting for a general manager position, and that person will work on-site with the construction team. In total, the Inn will employ 22 to 25 people, according to past H&N reporting.

Also in TimberMill Shores, Peoples Bank broke ground in late August.

Bogatay Headquarters

Bogatay construction is also on schedule for its new operations division headquarters on Venture Way in Tech Hills near Dan O’Brien Way, which is expected to open in May.

All the structural steel is in place and work has begun on siding and roofing.

Bogatay Construction is a Klamath Falls-based commercial, industrial and residential contracting firm.

Opening soon

Gordmans, the clothing store that will replace Bealls at the Klamath Falls Town Center, is expected to open on March 17, according to a press release.

The store is hiring a variety of full-time, part-time and temporary positions, including sales associate, stockroom associate and more.

Gordman’s is another store under Stage, the same umbrella company as Bealls. The store is at 1851 Avalon St.

The store offers popular name brand apparel, home décor, footwear, gifts, accessories, fragrances and more.

Also in Klamath Falls, Natural Grocers will open in the Jefferson Square Mall at 2800 S. Sixth St. Jan. 15, and Ulta Beauty, at 2870 S. Sixth St., will open Feb. 7.
