ARLINGTON, VA-Plans for the development of a new hotel at Courthouse Plaza have take a big leap forward now that the Arlington County Board has named the Donohoe Cos. Inc. as the preferred developer for the 190-room SpringHill Suites hotel and restaurant project. This particular SpringHill Suites property is a groundbreaking endeavor of sorts, as it will be Marriott International Inc.’s first new “urban prototype” of its SpringHill Suites chain.

The project, designed by Washington, DC architect Leo A. Daly, will cost $35 million to complete. In addition to the suites, the 11-story structure will also feature 13,600 sf of retail space and the first Georgia Brown’s restaurant location beyond the confines of the District of Columbia.

“This type of hotel fits very well with Arlington’s urban village concept, in addition to being designed for Arlington’s many business travelers,” notes Barbara Favola, Arlington County Board chair. “We’re looking forward to it becoming a major draw for Courthouse and the Rosslyn-Ballston corridor.”

Now that the developer is in place, a land lease must be negotiated before the site plan can be approved and work can actually begin. As it stands, Arlington and Donohoe expect the project to reach completion in early 2008, at which point, Hospitality Partners will operate the hotel facility.
