FORT WORTH – (Realty News Report) – A specialized 170-room SpringHill Suites, featuring a restaurant by Urban Western cuisine chef Tim Love is under development in the historic Fort Worth Stockyards.
Oldham Goodwin Group, a College Station-based firm, is developing the hotel in collaboration with Texas-based general contractor Arch-Con Construction, Atlanta-based architect Niles Bolton Associates, and Dallas-based interior design firm Studio 11 Design.
The new hotel will replace the recently-demolished, Wells Fargo bank building known as “the wedge” on North Main Street. It will utilize many historic elements from its past, like the vault door from the bank.
“Arch-Con completed the intricate demolition of the bank building a few months ago,” said Mike Barbour, vice president of the Hospitality Division for Arch-Con. “And we are excited to move forward with the construction of the hotel that will represent this historic area well.”
The 133,000-SF hotel will feature a rooftop bar and restaurant by celebrity chef and Texas native Tim Love, best known for his signature “Urban Western” cuisine. Love is the chef and owner of beloved Texas restaurants – some of which are located within the Fort Worth Stockyards – including Lonesome Dove Western Bistro, Woodshed Smokehouse, Queenie’s Steakhouse, Love Shack, and the storied White Elephant Saloon.
Love is also developing three concepts that will open in Houston in Midway’s Kirby Grove development at Levy Park, near Richmond Avenue and Kirby Drive.
