General Hotels Corporation in partnership with Weathervane Capital Partners has begun work at the site of its future Homewood Suites hotel in the prestigious Borrows West development. The 131-room property, to be operated by General Hotels Corporation, will reflect Viera’s warmth and hospitality and be the perfect addition to the 115-acre mixed-use development that will feature corporate offices, medical and professional office buildings, waterfront dining venues, retail, entertainment venues and multi-family opportunities.
Construction, led by Hospitality Project Services, LLC is expected to be completed in early 2024. This is the first of two hotels planned for Borrows West by this partnership group. Construction will also soon begin for a 208-room Hilton Garden Inn featuring a roof-top bar and generous meeting space. The Hilton Garden Inn is expected to open in summer 2024.
“Today marks a special moment as we officially begin work at our outstanding location in Viera, FL. We are excited to further our partnership with Hilton, a true hospitality leader,” said Jim Dora, Jr. President and CEO, General Hotels Corporation.
“We are thrilled to be a part of this incredible development in Viera”, said Tom Paulus, Founder and Managing Partner of Weathervane Capital Partners, “We look forward to serving the needs of visitors to the USSSA Space Coast Complex and throughout Brevard County.” Weathervane Managing Partner Michael Murchie adds “Our commitment to develop two hotels in Borrows West shows our belief in this community and ongoing strength of the Florida hotel market.” General Hotels and Weathervane are currently partnered on another hotel under construction in Estero, Florida, with more hotel projects to come in the state of Florida.
