Houston, TX (PRWEB) March 12, 2014
Woodbine Development Corporation and InterMountain Management (IMM) announced today they have purchased 3.25 acres in Springwoods Village to develop an extended-stay hotel. The new hotel, a 128-room Residence Inn, is scheduled to open in summer 2015 and is the first of three select-service hotels Woodbine will develop in Springwoods Village.
Currently in the design phase, Residence Inn 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. Woodbine, known for its extensive hospitality and mixed-use projects, also plans to develop a full-service hotel in Springwoods Village’s Town Center.
“Since teaming with IMM two years ago, we’ve discovered incredible synergies for the projects we’ve taken on together,” said King Scovell, Woodbine’s vice president of development. “We’re glad to be involved in Springwoods Village’s evolution into a vibrant, mixed-use hub, where these hotels will play an important role in the community.”
Springwoods Village is a $10-billion, 1,800-acre, mixed-use community situated along the west side of Interstate 45 between Springwoods Village Parkway and the future Grand Parkway. Designed for sustainability, the nature-inspired residential and commercial community will provide diverse housing options, civic facilities, outdoor recreation and a 60-acre Town Center 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. “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.”
Other members of the Residence Inn development team include GH2 Hospitality Architects of Tulsa; Walter P Moore Engineers of Tulsa; Precision Engineering of Tulsa; and DCI Engineers of Austin.
