The development team behind the Hampton Inn & Suites Capitol View now underway in the North Gulch has released a new image for the building and has pushed back the completion date to fall 2019.

Franklin-based hotel operations and development company Chartwell Hospitality and Rockbridge, an Ohio-based investment firm that focuses on hotels, are undertaking the project. Previously, a summer 2019 completion had been eyed.

The Hampton Inn & Suites Capitol View will rise 10 stories and offer 169 rooms. Memphis-based Bounds & Gillespie Architects is the architect. See the previous rendering here.

The hotel will sit at the southwest corner of the intersection of 11th Avenue North and LifeWay Plaza. The project represents the two firms’ second hotel deal partnership. Rockbridge owns the Hilton Garden Inn in SoBro, which Chartwell developed and manages.

“Rockbridge has proven to be an excellent partner in delivering high-quality hotels and we are excited to collaborate with them on this unique project,” said Chartwell President Rob Schaedle said in a release.

In addition to 169 guest rooms, the Hampton Inn & Suites will contain 4,000 square feet of meeting space and a rooftop bar and pool.

Capitol View spans about 32 acres and is expected, once built out, to offer multiple buildings with a collective 1.1 million square feet of office space, 130,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, 600 apartment units, a park/community space and jogging trails.

Rockbridge has invested in 223 hotel projects in 38 states, with the properties offering a collective $5.8 billion in capitalization.
