A Henrico-based firm wants to put up a hotel next to Short Pump Town Center as local hoteliers continue to bet on an industry rebound.
Kalyan Hospitality submitted plans to Henrico County last week for a 9-story, 130-room hotel at 11768 W. Broad St.
The undeveloped, 1.7-acre parcel sits between Short Pump Town Center and VCU Health’s Neuroscience, Orthopaedic and Wellness Center.
Kalyan owner Nick Patel said they don’t have a brand identified yet for the hotel and will announce more information once they get approvals from the county.
Plans for the new hotel show it would total 107,000 square feet and would include 130 parking spaces. Henrico property records show an entity tied to Patel bought the land in 2009 for $1.2 million.
Design Enclave Consultants is listed as the project’s architect and Petersburg-based The Site Design Co. is the engineer.
Kalyan currently operates three hotels in the region and has three more in the works, including a Courtyard by Marriott in The Ella, a project from Spy Rock Real Estate on part of the UMFS campus just west of Scott’s Addition.
Two other local hotel operators are making moves to expand their presence in Henrico. Shamin Hotels and Sky Hotels group are both working on hotels at the intersection of West Broad Street and Glenside Drive. Shamin’s is under construction, while Sky’s Towneplace Suites is still in the planning phase.
Near the Kalyan site in Short Pump, Shamin also is nearing completion on a new Home2Suites hotel at 209 Towne Center West Blvd. It’s just up the road from Shamin’s 254-room Short Pump Hilton, which it lost to receivership after falling behind on loan payments in the thick of the pandemic.
And Kalyan’s Short Pump plans come as the county has begun pondering the future evolution of Short Pump Town Center in light of changing retail and development trends.
