A new seven-story, 138-room Residence Inn by Marriott Hotel is coming to The Point at Woodruff Road and I-85 in Greenville.
The hotel will be on 2.7-acres across from the Whole Foods shopping center on Carolina Point Parkway. The former Boyles Furniture building on the property will be demolished, but the adjacent former Thomasville furniture store building will remain as separate from this project, said Leif Busby, principal at Windsor Aughtry, the developer of the project.
Residence Inn by Marriott will have all of the expected amenities including a hospitality suite, meeting rooms, pool, outdoor grills and fire pit and complimentary breakfast, said Busby.
“The growth of ICAR, retail and activity on Woodruff Road and interstate visibility is what attracted us to this area,” said Busby. “This will be the only Marriott product in this submarket of Greenville.”
Construction is expected to begin in the third quarter of 2016 and take approximately 18 months.
Windsor Aughtry is also developing the new Embassy Suites at Riverplace in downtown Greenville, which will have a Ruth’s Chris steakhouse and rooftop bar. That hotel is slated to open in August.
