Choice Hotel’s Cambria Suites brand is entering three major development deals in Washington D. C.; Houston, Texas; and White Plains, N.Y. This announcement comes on the heels of two additional development deals in New York City.
These projects with Choice Hotels’ capital are the first Cambria Suites properties for each developer, and the first Cambria Suites hotels for each market. Concord Hospitality is developing the properties in Washington D.C. and Houston. The 182-room Cambria Suites hotel will be part of CityMarket at O, a $300 million mixed-use development located by the D.C. Convention Center in downtown Washington, D.C. near Gallery Place. CityMarket at O is being developed by Roadside Development, a Washington DC-based real estate firm and will offer over 87,000 square feet of retail, 629 residential units, 500 parking spaces and the Cambria Suites hotel. The hotel will have a rooftop pool, fitness center and an outdoor patio with views of the U.S. Capitol and the National Monuments. Additionally, Concord Hospitality is the developer of the 127-suite Houston Cambria Suites property that is just miles from the Houston Airport.
Meyer Jabara Hotels will develop the downtown White Plains, N.Y. property. The 130-room Cambria Suites will be part of a $47 million mixed-use development located at 250 Main Street in downtown White Plains. When complete, there will be 30,000 square feet of new retail space and 17,000 square feet of retail and office space in an adjoining building. Construction on the retail portion of the development is already underway, with hotel construction set to commence in March 2012. The property is anticipated to open in September 2013.
