Miramar Beach front, Florida’s TownePlace Suites resort plans are delayed

MIRAMAR Beach —  It’s back to the drawing board for the developer of a 100-room Marriott-branded TownePlace Suites resort proposed for Scenic Gulf Drive at U.S. Freeway 98 in Miramar Beach front.

Immediately after an hour and a fifty percent past week with the Walton County Scheduling Fee, Michael Langston of Baskerville-Donavan Inc. — the Pensacola-centered engineering company doing work with Banyan Financial investment Group, which operates 26 inns in 13 states — asked that thing to consider of the proposal be continued to a upcoming assembly to permit the developer to amend the present-day resort proposal.

At problem for the Scheduling commission at its meeting previous Thursday was whether or not Banyan Investment Team, an Atlanta-dependent resort expenditure and management enterprise with an office in Destin, had prepared adequate parking for the facility. Banyan Investment has owned the Scenic Gulf Push house for at the very least 25 years, during which time it has operated under a range of hotel chain brand names, like Getaway Inn, Ramada Inn and Top quality Inn.

A proposal from hotel developer Banyan Investment Group would replace this Quality Inn and Suites on Scenic Gulf Drive in Miramar Beach with a 100-room TownePlace Suites. Hotels have occupied the 1.5-acre tract for decades.

From February: TownePlace Suites hotel proposed for Scenic Gulf Push in Walton County

From June: Miramar Beach front resort proposal heads back to the drawing board

As for the proposed TownePlace Suites, the enterprise had formerly been granted a variance by the county allowing for it to offer just one parking place for each hotel area, alternatively than the 1.1 areas demanded under county restrictions.
