On Tuesday night Grapevine City Council, along with the planning and zoning commission, approved an expansion of the Courtyard Marriott/Towneplace Suites, which are both Marriott hotels.
With the approval, a third brand—Hilton Garden Inn—will be added in conjunction with the existing two hotels.
The expansion will include 150 rooms, bringing the property’s total room count to 450 rooms. Additionally the expansion will add 5,000 square feet of meeting space, making the total amount of meeting space on the site 15,000 square feet.
The Hilton Garden Inn will be six stories and feature a restaurant and a bar.
The expansion is a part of a master plan for a 52-acre development along SH 26 called Silver Lake Crossings. At the meeting, developers not only presented plans for the expansion but also for a Renaissance Hotel and a 359-unit multifamily complex called Jefferson Silver Lake. The development will also include restaurants.
Although all three additions were presented, only the expansion was approved at the meeting. The Renaissance Hotel, along with the multifamily complex, was tabled until the council’s Oct. 18 meeting.
The developer said he is looking to break ground on the hotels and apartment complex in the third quarter of 2017 with completion on the entire development expected in June 2019.
