It has received it conditional approvals from city officials.
Brunswick, Md (KM) A new hotel is on its way to Brunswick. City Planning and Zoning Administrator Bruce Dell says the building will be a four-story, 54,000-square-feet structure with 93 rooms. “That construction will hopefully begin within the next months,” he says. “Right now, it has conditional plan approval, and we’re finalizing all the plans and getting ready to record the plat. It shouldn’t be too long.”
It will be located in the Brunswick Crossing development which is off of Route 17 just as motorists get off of Route 340. “Brunswick Crossing is the development that’s 1505 residential units, and they approved 45-acres of commercial at the same site. And within that commercial section is where the hotel is slated to be built,” says Dell.
He says the type of guests who would stay at this hotel would be tourists, or families coming into town for little league games.”People that are having weddings or anniversaries, and they’re coming into the area to see family and they ‘re coming from out of town. So they’ll be staying there,” says Dell. “We could be overflow for the casino in Charles Town (WV), overflow for Frederick.”
Currently, Frederick city officials are discussing a proposed downtown hotel and conference center to be located along Carroll in East Patrick Streets which will be designed for conferences, conventions and similar activities. Dell said this new hotel in Brunswick will not be hosting conventions and conferences. . “There will be no convention rooms in the particular hotel that’s being built,” he said.
The new hotel located at Lander Creek Drive and Jefferson Pike is expected to be open for business in the summer of 2019.
Dell says residents are getting excited about it. “I think people are excited about the new development and the new commercial development within in the town. I feel this development will spark other development in the town. So from that standpoint, people are excited about it,” he says.
