City breaks ground for new Amarillo Embassy Suites



Quote:
October 16. 2015.

AMARILLO, TX - Construction is now underway for the brand new Embassy Suites.

City officials and hotel developers broke ground at the new site on Buchanan street Friday morning.

Here's what you need to know about what this new hotel will offer:

226 two-room and studio suites
Full service spa
Valet parking
Free cook-to-order breakfast
Complimentary cocktail reception every night
18,000 square feet of conference space
City officials and executives from Newcrest Image, the developers for the hotel, believe that offering this ample conference space will attract more groups and companies to the city that have never come before.

Early in 2016, construction will begin for a parking garage directly across the street from the hotel.

It's waiting on the Buddy Holly Hall which is still in the process of raising money from what I've heard.

Be warned, there's a decent chance neither will happen, there is opposition to both stemming from the public not wanting the city to subsidize either development which both are leaning for. But I'll remain optimistic.

True. Lubbock's residents don't want any downtown development even if they never go there. Sad really. Lubbock could easily be the next big thing.

Downtown wise outside of El Paso I would say yes. Lubbock, Midland-Odessa, Abilene and San Angelo all have great potential to improve their downtown area. As far as population growth wise I say Lubbock takes the lead followed by Amarillo, Midland-Odessa, Abilene then San Angelo.

Those mega rest stops are nice. There is one on 287 way out past Childress too.

I think investing in rest stops is a good idea. Most people can't think that far ahead, but I believe in that in the near future as electric, self driving cars start to appear on roads the number of truck stops and gas stations will decline. I wouldn't say the likes of Bucee's are under threat, but the kind of hole-in-the-wall marts along rural highways might not have a future.

Naturally then this will leave travelers without a place to pee. Hence the need for rest stops.

Rest stops especially along our Interstates is a must. What I think would be a logical idea is the state should start building more rest stops around barren areas such as between San Antonio and El Paso. That drive is something else, 8 hrs of nothing.

Hotel Santa Rita project is ‘full steam ahead’

Quote:
By Stewart Doreen
October 2, 2016

Hotel Santa Rita is full steam ahead and still aiming for construction to begin at the end of February, according to an official with the project.

Project spokesman Robert Watson, CEO of the diversified hospitality and real estate development company called Bond Partners, told the Reporter-Telegram he is feeling “very good” about the project coming to fruition and that the Midland City Council’s extension of deadlines related to the building of a boutique hotel downtown was officials being proactive in their communication with the city.

On Tuesday, the City Council approved a third amendment to the master development agreement between the city and Hotel Santa Rita Midland partners that extended:

- the proof of financing deadline from Sept. 30 to Jan. 31.
- the construction drawings deadline from Sept. 30 to Jan. 31.
- the commencement of construction deadline from Oct. 31 to Feb. 28.
- the completion of construction deadline from Aug. 31, 2018, to March 31, 2019.

Watson said financing equity is raised and basically all the financing is in place. He said some documentation on debt is being finalized.

He said developers are still working on construction documents.

“The start of construction has not changed,” Watson said. “We have just put some cushion in place.”

Midland's unemployment rate declines for 2nd straight month

Quote:
By Mella McEewen
Dec. 16th. 2016

Midland’s labor market exhibited continued strength as seen in data from the Texas Workforce Commission.

The unemployment rate in the Midland metropolitan statistical area fell a second consecutive month, coming in at 3.6 percent in November from 3.9 percent in October, the commission said Friday. It is also lower than the November 2015 rate of 3.8 percent. Midland was tied with Abilene and Fort Worth-Arlington.
Odessa saw a similar decline in its unemployment rate, to 5.3 percent from 5.7 percent in October. The rate is the same as November 2015.

Midland also reported a gain of 1,000 jobs from October to November, led by 400 new jobs in the trade, transportation and utilities sector. Close behind was the leisure and hospitality sector with 300 jobs, mining, logging and construction with 200 jobs and the government sector with 100 jobs.
