Richmond (Fort Bend County) - Home2 Suites by Hilton are popping up across the nation at a furious pace, and the Houston area can expect to add four locations over the next 12 months.

That is in addition to five hotels already in operation.

Construction will begin this summer on a Home2 Suites east of Richmond, near the northwest corner of Interstate 69 and SH 99 (Grand Parkway). Bid documents from invited contractors only are due May 9 on this project.

The boundaries on this project site are Ransom Road to the north, Pointe West Circle to the south, and an unnamed access road parallel to SH 99 is to the east.

This is to be a five-story, wood frame structure with 60,329 square feet. It will have 100 guest rooms, an outdoor pool on the east side and surface parking on the west side for 105 vehicles.

The site will have more landscaping than usual, since more than a third of the property will be left undeveloped. 

The project architect is RSS Architects LLC of Arlington. Triangle Engineering LLC of Allen produced the landscape plan.

Elsewhere in the Greater Houston area, three Home2 Suites are now under construction and are scheduled to open in August. The locations include 600 West Texas Avenue in Websters; 7512 Garth Road in Baytown; and 223 David Vetter Boulevard in Shenandoah.

According to the Home2 Suites by Hilton website, more than 40 new hotels will be opening this year from coast-to-coast.
