The project, which would rise at the southwest corner of Myrtle Avenue and Huntington Drive, would replace a long-vacant property a half-mile north of Monrovia's Gold Line stop. Plans call for the construction of a five-story building which would feature 109 guest rooms and amenities such as an exercise room, a swimming pool, and restaurant space. A surface parking lot would wrap the low-rise structure, providing parking for up to 109 vehicles.
The TownePlace development is being designed by Las Vegas-based architecture firm DesignCell, which specializes in hotel projects.
Construction of the proposed hotel is expected to occur over a period of 14 to 16 months, beginning in December 2018 and finishing by April 2020. That schedule is contingent on several discretionary actions by the City of Monrovia, including a general plan amendment and a zone change.
The project is scheduled to go before the Monrovia City Council in August of this year.
A half-mile south as Monrovia Station, the Connecticut-based real estate firm Richman Group is contemplating plans for a 296-unit apartment complex.
