How Cedar Park Attracted This New Hotel
There’s no shortage of reasons why hotel developer Worth Hotels selected Cedar Park for it’s next location. Its tremendous population growth (400% in the last decade) and city leaders’ willingness to welcome new development continues to lure projects like the new 86-room SpringHill Suites by Marriott, says Dowdle Real Estate prez Lynn Dowdle (with Priority Power Management’s CJ Butler on dove opener). She repped Worth Hotels in its location in the Costco-anchored mixed-use project at Hwy 183 and FM 1431.
Mixed-use is attractive to developers, as hotels do well in areas surrounded by retail and restaurants, Lynn says—largely because guests don’t have to really leave the property. It also doesn’t hurt that the site is at the juncture of two major thoroughfares, she adds. More pluses: The site is in the nation’s fourth fastest-growing city in the US (Census Bureau) and less than 20 minutes from downtown Austin, she tells us. The Bundy, Young, Sims and Potter-deisgned hotel, at 1110 Discovery Blvd, is under construction and will open Q1 ’16.
