Hotel in the works for Old Meridian area
Construction should begin soon on an $11.5 million hotel in the Old Meridian corridor.
The 61,000-square-foot Fairfield Inn & Suites by Mariott is part of the Grand & Main project in that area and will feature four floors with 105 guest rooms on 2.176 acres.
The hotel is located at 1335 W. Main Street a little bit north of Meijer. Parking is located to the side and rear with 100 spaces and possibly more. The city is working to make sure there is a five-foot buffer of landscaping between the hotel and nearby homes.
The floor plan of the building will feature king and two queen bed quest rooms. The first floor will have 12 guest rooms, a meeting room, a dining room, an exercise room and indoor pool. The three upper floors will have about 30 guest rooms each.
Nearby will be a 362,000-square-foot multi-family development and parking structure with four stories. There will be 305 apartments with 589 parking spaces.
Also a part of Grand & Main development is the Rose Senior Living at Carmel, featuring 176,000 square feet of senior living space with 159 units on four floors.
