West Palm Beach-based Verdex Construction announces the start of construction of a TownePlace Suites by Marriott Hotel in Port St. Lucie, FL. The five-story building at 10460 SW Village Parkway will include 128 guest rooms, totaling 83,000 sq. ft. on 3.6 acres. The developer is PSL Hospitality, LLLP.
“Verdex is strategically expanding its portfolio of projects across South Florida, and this marks our first project on the Treasure Coast,” said Rex Kirby, President of Verdex Construction. “With so much growth occurring throughout the state, our mission of ‘Building Something Better’ is differentiating across a much wider market than where we were previously established, bringing first-class projects to our attention.”
The TownePlace Suites property will include amenities such as a pool, spa, an outdoor fire pit and barbeque. Construction costs for the project are estimated at $13.5 million, and the project is scheduled for completion in fall 2019.
TownePlace Suites is an extended-stay brand with more than 300 properties across the United States and Canada.
Verdex Construction’s recent projects throughout South Florida include the Canopy Hotel in Downtown West Palm Beach; 1000 North, an upscale restaurant/club on the Loxahatchee River in Jupiter; Sabbia Beach Condominiums, a 19-story, 68 unit luxury residential tower in Pompano Beach; and Town Southern apartments in Royal Palm Beach.
