Schilling Farms to Add TownePlace Suites by Marriott in Water Tower District
The Commercial Appeal
By Dima Amro
Schilling Farms Planned Development plans to add a TownePlace Suites by Marriott in its Water Tower District.
The Collierville Board of Mayor and Aldermen on Monday unanimously approved a preliminary site plan for a four-story, 110-room hotel at the Schilling Farms development for phase 73.
Town Planner Jamie Groce presented the site plan to the board as well as a traffic study and building designs.
The 68,335-square-foot hotel will sit on about 3 acres south of Poplar Avenue and west of Schilling Boulevard West and will also include a pool and 108 onsite parking spaces with two electric vehicle charging stations.
The outside of the hotel will consist of brick painted white, and the inside will contain mostly suites. Based on a traffic study from 2018, the hotel will have minor impact on the roadways.
The hotel is a part of the 54-acre Water Tower District, a mixed-use development with plans for multi-family residential units, hotels, retail shops and restaurants.
Now developers Schilling Enterprises LLC must create a final site plan for planning commission and board approval, then the board must approve a development
agreement. Once the board approves of the agreement, the developer can begin construction.
A date for construction has not been set yet.
