10-Story Hilton Garden Inn/Home2 Suites 6840 Almeda near TMC


Recommended Posts

Guessing this is taking the place of the dirt parking lot between Cambridge and Ringess? I don't really have a problem with this, it's probably needed for VA patients/relatives, and it's not as if Hilton Garden Inns are known for their stunning beauty.

This is being brought to us by the developers of The Embassy Suites, Hampton Inn/Homewood Suites, and I

just became aware that they are repurposing the Stower's Bldg into an ALOFT. I'm thankful that they won't

be stuccoing this building. They'll just screw up the interiors.

This is why there should be some kind of architectural review for materials and plans.

For a scary look into American Liberties other development projects go to their website.

Its not for the faint at heart.

I think you are right - I noticed they were doing some dirt work there over the weekend and thought maybe they were going to pave the parking lot.  They may have already started on this

 

Edit:  Looking at the rendering again and considering this is just "off" Holcombe, it might actually be that lot on Almeda near Holcombe.  The white buildings in the background of the rendering appear to match up with existing buildings in that location

Same guys as the embassy suites and Hampton/home wood, but the aloft is a different group.

I just checked the link at the top of this page posted by Urbanizer .

If you go to that link, and click on divisions and then hospitality you will see all of their stucco hotel and other projects pictures.

It includes a picture of the Stowers building with the caption underneath calling it an Aloft so I think they are doing it.

That's the contractor's website.  Maybe that's what you meant all along, but I think everyone under stood you to mean the owner/developer.  American Liberty Hospitality developed and owns the Embassy Suites, the Hampton/Homewood (and, FWIW, also owns or at least operates the Sam Houston Hotel). 

 

They (American Liberty) have nothing to do with the Aloft in the Stowers Building.

So from the address it looks like this is going on the site of the big parking lot just north of the VA? They semi-recently installed large canopies there to make it covered parking, but I guess those will be gone soon. If that lot goes it's going to make VA parking a lot more difficult.

This is a partnership with the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center which will share the hotel’s new seven-story parking garage as the VA shares the property with the hotel.

The med center is really pushing its southern and eastern boundaries. 

Its hard to believe it runs from south of O.S.T., all the way to Hermann Park and from Main all the way to east of 288.,
