Woodbine Development Corp. and InterMountain Management (IMM) have commenced development of Residence Inn by Marriott, a 128-key extended-stay hotel in North Houston.
The Residence Inn will be situated on a newly acquired 3.25-acre tract within Springwoods Village, a master-planned, mixed-use community located just south of The Woodlands and 20 miles north of downtown Houston. Currently in the design phase, the premier hotel is scheduled for opening in summer 2015; it is the first of three select-service hotels Woodbine plans to develop in Springwoods Village, including a full-service outfit in the Springwoods Town Center.
Boasting more than 650 all-suites hotels across four continents, the Residence Inn brand features spacious suites specifically designed for longer stays, with separate living and sleeping areas. Amenities include fully equipped kitchens, grocery delivery, complimentary hot breakfast and free Wi-Fi.
The new Residence Inn in Springwoods Village will serve the ExxonMobil campus, Southwestern Energy headquarters and other employers in the area, and will be the third project developed by Woodbine and IMM since the companies joined forces in 2012. The development team also includes GH2 Hospitality Architects of Tulsa, Walter P Moore Engineers of Tulsa, Precision Engineering of Tulsa and DCI Engineers of Austin, according to Citybizlist.
CDC Houston Inc., a subsidiary of Coventry Development Corp. of New York, oversees land development for Springwoods Village, as previously reported by Commercial Property Executive. Situated along the west side of Interstate 45 between Springwoods Village Parkway and the future Grand Parkway, the $10 billion, 1,800-acre community will provide diverse housing options, civic facilities, outdoor recreation and a 60-acre town center (pictured at right) with office space, shopping, dining and lodging in an urban, walkable environment.
“With several planned hotels, Springwoods Village will help stimulate a new hotel submarket to accommodate the needs of the rapidly expanding employment center in north Harris County,” said Keith Simon, executive vice president of CDC Houston, in a written statement. “The development of Residence Inn is the first step in our strategy to provide a range of hotel products at different price points within walking distance of work centers.”
