The sad part of all this is that the entire block as an entity should have been a solid, dense, urban hotel and office development all facing street side with retail along Brentwood Ave. Instead, you get reasonable street facing hotel development next to the University Tower which is a manageable, walkable distance from the Richmond Heights metrolink station. Next to it is the low density, strip mall mentality development that Sansone offers the region.

Equis Hospitality is in discussions with all of the major hotel brands to finalize the development of a limited service hotel in the Richmond Heights and Clayton area of St. Louis, MO.

The property will be located on the corner of Brentwood Blvd and Clayton Rd. It will feature approximately 200 guest rooms, ballroom space, a 450 space parking garage, and a third party restaurant open to the public. Equis currently operates the adjacent Homewood Suites by Hilton St. Louis Galleria that has performed exceedinly well despite opening during the most recent economic recession. The depth of demand in the immediate market, along with high barriers to entry and limited new supply, will help anchor this hotel as a trophy asset in the St. Louis region.

Equis expects construction on the Lot A Hotel to be begin before the end of 2014.

Update
Mullenix said that when that deal goes through, Equis would move forward on a separate hotel at 8060 Clayton Road, now a vacant lot at the southeast corner of Clayton Road and Brentwood Boulevard.

Mullenix said Equis plans to build a 200-room, $45 million hotel there, likely under the Marriott flag. The hotel would also include a 450-space parking garage and restaurant. Equis hopes to begin construction on that project before the end of 2017.

^ Assuming the parking structure will also go in as well.

Can't help but think that a Boulevards like development fronting Brentwood and wrapping around the south side of the hotels & university tower would have fit very well and could offer a good pedestrian access to Richmond Heights metrolink station.

The other thought trying to wrap around my head is where hotel rooms are being added right now. Brentwood Drury Inn, Richmond Crossings breaking ground and now the second Main & Main and the Fountains hotels move forward. Wouldn't be surprised if a hotel development to pop where the burger king on Brentwood & once was The Boulevards phase III or even on the south lot of Galleria.

However, Outside of downtown convention/sports driven hotel rooms being added to make for lost rooms their hasn't been as many hotel rooms as I thought would have broken ground by now in either Clayton CBD and or CWE/Cortex area by now. Starting with the Aloft or Drury finally making a move on Kingshighway.. Heck, I thought Clayton CBD Westin was a given once it was floated as a proposal for one of the city owned lots..
What flag will this hotel fly under? Either way, it looks like the St. Louis construction boom is on its way back.

A Marriott flag unique to the STL market.

Mullenix said the new hotel will likely include a parking garage to support both hotels, a restaurant and “we’re toying with the idea of if there is an opportunity for a rooftop venue.”

I contacted them and they stated that the hotel could be an AC Hotel. They are in discussions to make it official. They are not sure of it being this but they are in “final negotiations”. That’s why the representative lady from Equis told me.
