THE WOODLANDS, Texas – The Woodlands Development Co. has begun construction on a 205-key Embassy Suites Hotel at Hughes Landing, a 66-acre mixed-use development in The Woodlands north of Houston
Hughes Landing is a waterfront development with retailers, dining, entertainment, multifamily residences and several new Class A office space.
The first multifamily development in Hughes Landing, One Lake’s Edge, will feature 390 luxury residences and is expected to open in early 2015. One Hughes Landing, a 197,719-square-foot, eight-story, Class A office building, opened September 2013, less than ten months after construction began and is now 100% occupied. Two Hughes Landing, a 197,714-square-foot, eight-story, Class A office building, opened in May and is 83% leased. The 12-story, approximately 321,000-square-foot Class A office building, Three Hughes Landing, recently broke ground with completion expected in the third quarter of 2015.
Slated for completion in late 2015, the nine-story, 172,000-square-foot Embassy Suites hotel will feature 3,000 square feet of meeting space.
“The rapid growth at Hughes Landing has created significant demand for a new hotel in the area to effectively serve the needs of our local business and leisure travelers,” said Paul Layne, Executive Vice President of Master Planned Communities for The Howard Hughes Corp., owner of The Woodlands.
With more than 215 hotels in the United States, Canada and Latin America, Embassy Suites are part of the Hilton organization.
The Woodlands is a 28,000-acre master planned community located 27 miles north of downtown Houston.
