METRO WEST DAILY NEWS – After nearly a year-and-a-half of construction, a new five-story, 153-room Hilton Garden Inn is slated to open in early June at Marlborough Hills, a growing mixed-use development at the former Hewlett-Packard campus.
Construction crews are putting the finishing touches on the first new hotel to be built in the city in a decade, as landscaping work and sign installation is ongoing and expected to be completed soon, said Joe Zink, president of Atlantic Management.
Furniture was recently delivered to the site and crews are busy setting up the rooms, said Zink, who is marketing Marlborough Hills.
The hotel is in the process of hiring employees in preparation for the June opening, said Zink.
Located in the northeast parcel of Marlborough Hills, the hotel will feature a restaurant with outdoor seating, a pool, gym area and meeting rooms. Zink described the new hotel as “beautiful.”
“It’s going to be the nicest hotel in that marketplace,” said Zink.
Along with the hotel, construction crews are in the midst of building a new 10,000-square-foot day care center with the aim of opening in August.
Since breaking ground in December, crews have laid the foundation and conducted work on the exterior frame of the Learning Experience Child Development Center.
The center, which operates more than 150 schools across the country, will feature classrooms that will be able to house upwards of 180 children and outdoor playgrounds.
Children as young as a few months old to up to age seven can attend.
The facility will have 40 parking spaces, but unlike an elementary school there are no set drop-off and pick-up times. Most students will be dropped off between 6:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. and picked up between noon and 6:30 p.m.
Along with the day care center and hotel, crews recently completed an apartment complex at the development. GE Healthcare Life Sciences and Quest Diagnostics are also located at the site.
Zink said it is exciting to see to see the Marlborough Hills development come together.
“It’s rewarding,” said Zink.
