Two more hotels may be coming to Wilmington Riverfront
Wilmington, DE (February 22, 2016) The Buccini/Pollin Group announced two new hotel development projects on the Wilmington riverfront. BPG has received franchise approval for a 100-room Homewood Suites by Hilton and is currently in the review process for a 200-room Marriott hotel.
BPG is a commercial and hotel development company, with offices in Wilmington and Washington, DC.
Both hotels will be located in the Riverfront area and are expected to serve an increasing number of business travelers, conference attendees, and the multiple entertainments and special events held in the area, according to a release.
The announcement comes after BPG’s recent acquisition of the former Omni Hotel in City Center Philadelphia – now known as the Franklin Hotel by Marriott; the Crowne Plaza and Fairfield Inn by Marriott Hotels in King of Prussia, PA; and the awarding of management rights to BPG’s hotel management affiliate, PM Hotel Group, for the Embassy Suites Valley Forge, PA and the DoubleTree by Hilton in Reading PA.
BPG is also the developer, owner, and operator of the recently constructed, 180-room Westin Hotel Wilmington, adjacent to the Chase Center on the Riverfront.
William Sullivan, chairman of the Greater Wilmington Convention and Visitors Bureau said news of the two hotels is “great for the riverfront” in terms of landing regional conventions. “With about 500 guests rooms, Wimington can play in that market.”
Both hotels will be constructed by BPGS Construction and operated by PM Hotel Group, Inc.
“We are very proud of the dynamic growth occurring in Wilmington,” says PM Hotel Group Chairman and BPG co-founder Dave Pollin, “and believe that these hotels will be a catalyst for the Riverfront to become one of the premier destination and meeting places on the Eastern Seaboard. Importantly, we will create up to 200 more jobs for the residents of Wilmington and generate millions of tax dollars for the community.”
BPG is currently working with land planners to identify the optimal site layout and complete the land planning process.
The company will then move full-speed into the design and approvals process in collaboration with the City of Wilmington, the Riverfront Development Corporation of Delaware and numerous other public agencies. “The Riverfront is in yet another expansion phase, and we want to make sure that hotel capacity is part of that growth,” says Robert Buccini, Co-Founder of The Buccini/Pollin Group.
Several projects are currently in the works in this phase of Wilmington Riverfront’s growth, including the recently approved $30 million bridge connecting the district to US Route 13, easing congestion and improving access for visitors.
The Horizon Riverfront Rink and the recently added Riverwalk Mini Golf join already established destinations like Frawley Stadium, the 15-screen Penn Cinema IMAX Theater, the Delaware Children’s Museum, and Stratosphere Trampoline Park in bringing families to the Riverfront for recreation and entertainment.
Residential growth on the riverfront also continues with the 2015 opening of The Residences at Harlan Flats, an 116-unit community. Phase II of Harlan Flats is now under construction, adding another 76 units to the community.
Wilmington Mayor Dennis Williams praised the work of BPG.
“Buccini/Pollin Group, the real estate development company that also developed the Westin Wilmington, continues to be at the forefront of establishing the Riverfront as an attractive destination for regional travelers. Like the Westin Wilmington, each of the hotels’ proximity to the Chase Center will make the Center more competitive as a destination for larger meeting, conference, and convention business. It will also help draw visitors to the various nearby attractions and entertainment options,” Williams stated.
