Hotels in development across the U.S. include two new properties in mixed-use developments and Virgin Hotels’ Las Vegas resort:
Ground Broken on Hotel West + Main in Pennsylvania
Keystone Property Group, a real estate developer and investor of mixed-use properties, has broken ground on the Hotel West + Main, part of the Tapestry Collection by Hilton, part of its 520,000-sq.-ft. Sora West development. This $325-million mixed-use project includes a new global headquarters for pharmaceutical distribution company AmerisourceBergen, the reuse of a 146-year-old historic firehouse and a 12-story public and private parking garage.
Keystone has partnered with Concord Hospitality Enterprises to develop and operate the 127-room boutique hotel. The property will have a rooftop bar and lounge overlooking the amphitheater and plaza, as well as meeting spaces and 1874 Social, which will include an outdoor terrace connecting to the firehouse.
Hotel West + Main will become Conshohocken’s third hotel and first newly constructed property
since 2001. Concord has grown its footprint in Pennsylvania to nearly two dozen properties.
Virgin Hotels Las Vegas to Open March 25
Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, part of the Curio Collection by Hilton, is scheduled to open on March 25. The casino-resort is owned by JC Hospitality.
Located off-Strip, Virgin Hotels Las Vegas will have three hotel towers with more than 1,500 chambers (Virgin Hotels guestrooms) and suites, the 60,000-sq.-ft. Mohegan Sun Casino, a five-acre desert pool oasis including a multi-functional event lawn, a live music and entertainment theater with 4,500 capacity, 24 Oxford showroom accommodating 650 guests and 12 F&B venues.
Virgin Hotels Las Vegas teamed with five design and construction partners—Rockwell Group, Klai Juba Wald Architecture + Interiors, Studio Collective, Taylor International Corporation and McCarthy Building Companies Inc.—on the project.
Bellyard, A Tribute Portfolio Hotel to Open This Summer
Davidson Hospitality Group has been tapped by Three P Partners to manage Bellyard, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel, in Atlanta, which is expected to open this summer. The 161-room hotel will be managed by Davidson’s lifestyle operating vertical, Pivot, and will include Drawbar tavern; an outpost of Saint-Germain Bakery; a rooftop pool and bar concept operated by Slater Hospitality; 8,000 sq. ft. of flexible indoor and outdoor meeting and event space; and a collection of local art on display.
The hotel will be located within The Interlock, a $450-million modern mixed-use development in Atlanta’s West Midtown neighborhood. The name “Interlock” was derived from the Howell Interlocking Historic District, a location down the road from the development where four railroad lines converge. This district has been active since 1837 and the tracks still see multiple trains pass through every day. The Interlock and Bellyard pay homage to the history of the area and how industry and commerce continue to hold a key place in the neighborhood’s identity, according to Davidson.
