Residence Inn could replace Motel 6 in Pittsfield Township
The new Marriott-brand hotel would be a -story, -room hotel and the first Residence Inn in the township, Township Planner Ben Carlisle said.
Pittsfield Township’s planning commission granted preliminary site approval to the Residence Inn in early August. The development group, Group Management, now must seek approval from infrastructure commissions, such as road and water, before the planned development goes to the Pittsfield Township Board of Trustees for final approval.
Group Management is purchasing the building from its current owner, President Kenny Koza said. The site is currently owned by G Hospitality Property, LLC, according to Pittsfield Township records.
The company considered other Pittsfield Township locations but chose that spot because of its proximity to Ann Arbor and other hotels and the ease of the approval process since the parcel is already zoned for a hotel, he said.
“We think it’s the highest quality and best use for that property,” Koza said. “Marriott is a respected brand and matches the clientele of the area.”
Official site designs won’t be drafted until the proposal is given final approval in about six to eight months, Koza said. But the extended-stay hotel will have an indoor pool, meeting spaces, free breakfast and other staples of the Residence Inn brand. Once approved, Koza expects construction will take about months.
Carlisle said the township is looking forward to the plan because it matches the quality in Ann Arbor, which is across the I- corridor.
Pittsfield Township sees the new hotel plan to improve the area. One requirement for the final plan is it must have a proposed public art component, in line with the township’s master plan.
“Group Management is a high-quality developer that develops, owns and operates their developments,” Carlisle said. “The township is excited to work with them and revitalize that corridor.”
There are two Residence Inns in Ann Arbor: downtown on Huron and Ashley Streets and on the north side on Green and Plymouth roads. This is Group Management’s second Residence Inn; the first is scheduled to open March in Farmington Hills, Koza said.
