Boyle Investment Co. is expanding Meridian Cool Springs to include a high-end Westin hotel, which will be the first in Nashville.

The expanded Meridian will be 65 acres with three hotels, more than one million square feet of office space and 68,665 square feet of upscale retail including seven restaurants, one bank, a coffee shop, dry cleaners, salon and day spa.

Franklin-based Chartwell Hospitality is developing the six-story, 225-room hotel with 10,000 square feet of meeting space and a 5,000-sqaure-foot ballroom. The company’s portfolio includes more than 32 hotel properties in the U.S., employing more than 725 people.

The Westin will begin construction in Fall 2008.

The company’s One and Two Corporate Centre office buildings will be incorporated into the Meridian development, and the new Westin hotel will go between them.

The six-story office building names will be changed to One and Two Meridian to reflect the combination.

Memphis-based Boyle is active in retail, office and mixed-use developments throughout Middle Tennessee.
