On site work for Fort Mill’s newest hotel should start this fall.

TownePlace Suites by Marriott will have about 120 suites on 3.62 acres. The site is just beside the Cracker Barrel across from Carowinds.

Lakemont Property Investors owned the land, as part of their Lakemont Business Park purchase in 2012. Greenville-based Siddhi Hotel Group bought the hotel site and will develop it.

“The hotel will be an investment of $15 million to Lakemont Business Park in Fort Mill, and will generate 180 jobs during the construction phase alone,” said Kamal Rama, managing director with Siddhi Hotel Group. “There is new supply coming to the area, but due to location and brand affiliation, we will be very competitive in the Fort Mill market.”

Site work on the new hotel should begin this fall.

TownePlace Suites by Marriott sites offer complimentary hot breakfasts, full kitchens, outdoor grills, mobile check-in and free Wi-Fi.
