A Courtyard by Marriott hotel broke ground last week in Generation Park, Houston-based McCord Development Inc.’s 4,000-acre master-planned commercial park at the northeast corner of Beltway 8.
Oxford, Ohio-based Hotel Development Services is developing the hotel — the company’s first in Texas — on a 1-acre site, according to a press release. Expo Construction Group is the general contractor, and Mark Carlsen Design and Powers Brown Architecture worked on the project’s design and architecture. HDS will partner with American Hospitality Management to oversee the hotel’s day-to-day construction and management.
The five-story, 144-room hotel will include more than 2,000 square feet of meeting space, a business center, 24-hour market, large fitness center, outdoor pool, casual workspaces and a bistro offering grab-and-go food options and Starbucks Coffee, per the release. Twenty-four of the rooms will have balconies overlooking a plaza, and the hotel’s design will be integrated into the pedestrian promenade of Redemption Square, a 52-acre mixed-use district within Generation Park.The Courtyard by Marriott is expected to be complete in 2019 and will be the first hotel in Redemption Square, per the release. In March, 255 Assay Street Luxury Apartments broke ground in Redemption Square. The first vertical project to break ground in Redemption Square was an office building at 250 Assay Street, which is right across from the apartments. The building is home to McCord, Apache Industrial Services and Global Tubing LLC.
Redemption Square also is adjacent to TechnipFMC’s campus in Generation Park, across Beltway 8 from an HEB-anchored shopping center and across West Lake Houston Parkway from a shopping center where a Kroger Marketplace opened in August 2016.
