The Grapevine council approved changes to the Silver Lake Crossings development at its June 18 meeting.
The project is located on 52 acres of land off Bass Pro Court and SH 26 and will include a hotel that contains three brands—Renaissance, Element and AC Hotel—along with a Hilton Garden Inn, restaurant space and a four-story multitenant office building. An apartment complex is also located on the site and is currently under construction.
Council’s approval has changed the original master site plan. The area that was previously the site of the Marriott Renaissance Hotel and parking garage will now contain the three hotel brands. Another tower has been added to the multibrand hotel with the two towers joined by a conference facility that overlooks the on-site lake. The parking garage will be larger to accommodate the additional rooms being added to the hotel building and has been moved to the back side of the development. The hotel now includes more than 500 rooms.
The development includes a lake that will be given to the city with improvements that include campsites and trails to activate the area for the use of all area residents.
Construction on the multibrand hotel will begin in January with construction of the parking garage scheduled immediately after. Construction should be complete by September 2021, developer Mike Patel said.
The Hilton Garden Inn experienced a small expansion as well with the addition of two rooms. Patel said he intends to use a small space for temporary parking immediately to the east of the Hilton Garden Inn site. This will hold extra parking for the hotels while the parking garage is under construction. The temporary parking is needed for about two years, according to meeting documents.
Construction on this portion of the project is slated to begin in July and will be complete by December 2020, Patel said.
Finally, Patel presented the council with renderings showing a revised exterior design of the office building on the site. Originally approved as a three-story building, a revision was approved in October 2018 to add a fourth floor. The revised structure will have a contemporary design with more windows.
Construction on the office building is also scheduled for July and is expected to wrap up by August 2020.
