Atlanta, GA, January 16, 2019 – JLL’s project and development services division announced today the team has completed the first phase of renovations to the Marriott San Juan Stellaris in Puerto Rico.

Led by JLL’s Vice President Steve Schrope and Senior Project Manager Aaron Anderson, the hospitality-focused team of experts is utilizing strategic hurricane relief strategies to repair and restore one of the city’s most notable resorts. The team has managed restoration projects across the globe including projects in Key Largo, Duck Key, and Miami, FL.
