The City of Chandler Planning and Zoning Commission considered this week a staff-recommended approval of a proposal to bring a commercial development with hotel and retail/restaurant space at the SEC of Chandler Boulevard and Hearthstone Way.
Situated on four acres, the Towneplace at The Met will fly the Marriott flag. The project would consist with a 109-room, four-story hotel with two, one-story 9,800SF retail/restaurant shop buildings for a total of 57KSF. With a maximum 54’ height, the hotel would have amenities including a swimming pool, sundeck, fire pit, outdoor dining patios, fitness center, lobby, business center, board room and breakfast area.
The design would incorporate elements of the The Met, an adjacent 300-unit apartment complex already in place. Developed as an urban-style, pedestrian-oriented environment, the buildings will employ a contemporary style, including use of natural stone, stucco, wood-look fiber cement siding, metal shade awnings and earth-tone accents.
Pedestrian access will be enhanced by a paved pathway with gate access to the adjunct multifamily complex. Vehicles will access the property from both a main entrance off of Chandler Boulevard and secondary access from Hearthstone Way. The main entrance will feature colored pavers, accent pavers at pedestrian crossings and artistic touches, such as concrete medallions with exposed aggregate finish.
