Baywood Hotels Update: Construction Begins This Year
Construction on a 92-room, four-story Towne Place Suites by Marriott hotel will begin this year.
Construction on the Towne Place Suites by Marriott in Mount Vernon will commence this year, after more than a year of planning and acquiring permits.
The 92-room, four-story hotel, will be located at 8668 Richmond Highway. The building will be LEED Silver certified and include highway frontage improvements. The developer has stated that it is prepared to add a northbound turn lane if VDOT requires it.
Baywood submitted an application to rezone the property to allow the project to proceed, and the rezoning was approved by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors in July 2012, according to the Southeast Fairfax Development Corporation. The MVCCA Planning and Zoning Committee approved a resolution in July that allowed the project to move forward. Baywood’s Site Plan application was approved in November and the project will be proceeding this year.
