Concord Township’s business corridor continues to evolve as construction begins for a new four-story, 100-room Holiday Inn Express. Unistar Hospitality, LLC submitted plans for the $4.7 million hotel in late February of this year and received zoning approval from Concord in March. The hotel will be located behind the existing Crile Hardware store at 11200 Gold Court.
“The Trustees began discussing the need for another hotel in Concord Township about seven years ago because we felt that the market was under served,” said Trustee Chris Galloway. “We also wanted to pursue corporate relocations and expansions,” he said.
The Holiday Inn Express is the third hotel to result from the Hospitality Study commissioned by the Lake County Ohio Port and Economic Development Authority and the Lake County Visitors Bureau. “We used the data provided by the Hospitality Study to close the deals,” Galloway said.
Deals? That’s no typo; there may be a fourth! Investors from Elyria, Ohio will begin working through the zoning process next month to construct a four-story, 80-room Home2 Suites by Hilton in Concord Township. Home2 Suites will also be located on Gold Court across from the Holiday Inn Express.
