Grapevine City Council approved a master site plan Dec. 18 for the hotels and apartment buildings.
The hotels will offer more than 10,000 square feet of meeting space and more than 300 hotel rooms of which 155 rooms will be for the Holiday Inn and 148 rooms for Staybridge Suites. The hotel development will include a restaurant and both developments will have their own swimming pool.
The apartments, called The Carter, will be four stories tall and offer 275 units in a range of sizes. The development will be united with open lawns and community plazas to focus on walkability, said Kenneth Hambro, vice president of Integrated Housing Solutions, in his presentation to the council.
Hambro said his company has experience working on projects like this in the past and found success targeting the age 55 and older population. He said this is the same demographic that will be targeted with this project, although the project will not be age restricted.
“I like the hotel element—you could have come in and done it all apartment,” Council Member Darlene Freed said. “To me this makes it a little more interesting project.”
