MP Huntersville broke ground on a four-story, 84-room My Place Hotel in Huntersville, N.C. Slated to open early next spring, the hotel will mark the extended-stay brand’s first location in the state.

My Place Huntersville will be located right off I-77, less than a half hour drive north of Charlotte, N.C., the state’s most populous city. Guests staying at the property will have quick access to a variety of dining and retail options.

The project marks the fifth My Place Hotel for its general contractor, Celtic Services. “We really enjoy the process My Place HQ has developed to coordinate everything needed from ownership and general contractor,” Aaron Lawson, one of the founders of Celtic Services, said in a statement.
