The owner-operator of two hotels in the Orlando Gateway development on S Semoran Boulevard has filed preliminary plans for a Hyatt House to serve the airport submarket.
McKibbon Hospitality developed the neighboring Hampton Inn & Suites and the Homewood Suites on Gateway Village Circle in 2012 and 2013, respectively.
The Tampa-based company owns 5.6 acres in the development and has filed a specific parcel master plan with City of Orlando to build a new Hyatt House hotel. The developer is also looking to split the lot into two parcels.
In greater Orlando, the company also owns and operates the downtown Orlando Aloft hotel and a Courtyard by Marriott in Maitland. Company officials could not immediately be reached.
Hollywood-based shopping center developer JBL Asset Management bought balance of the Orlando Gateway property, which is just north of the S.R. 528 Beachline Expressway, in late 2016 for $23 million. JBL also owns and manages the retail portion of Gateway that includes Bonefish Grill, IHOP and several other national branded restaurants.
