A rendering shows what the future Village Center could look like in Jersey Village. The Jersey Village City Council approved an agreement with developer Collaborate at a March 18 meeting.

Officials with Collaborate, the Houston-based developer behind the mixed-use Village Center underway in Jersey Village, announced Sept. 11 they are "in discussions" with several tenants about coming into the center.

In a press release, Collaborate officials said they are working with Equinox Hospitality to bring an "upper mid-scale" Marriott Hotel brand to the center with 120 rooms. Equinox—a hotel investment, management, acquisition and development company—was put in charge of the hospitality and multifamily components of the Village Center when the project was announced in March.

The release also names WorkLodge as another tenant in discussions with Collaborate on a project that would bring a "professional, flexible, scalable workspace" to the development. WorkLodge developments are known for combining elements of coworking and private office spaces that can cater to a range of companies from solo entrepreneurs to teams of up to 100 people. A location has been operating in Vintage Park since 2015.

"In our focus to create an economic center and development, Collaborate is excited to be in discussions with WorkLodge," officials said in the release.

Broader plans for the 43-acre Village Center involve bringing in a mix of residential, retail, restaurant, office and hotel over the next three to four years. In a Chapter 380 agreement with the city of Jersey Village, developers said they plan to invest roughly $145 million into the development while collecting a portion of sales tax revenue and hotel occupancy tax revenue over the next 30 years. Construction could begin on a new City Hall within the center as soon as February 2020.
