Southlake City Council Expresses Support for Proposed Westin Hotel
The City of Southlake is in talks to potentially acquire a new Westin hotel during the first reading of a site plan during a recent meeting. Paul Barham of Harrell Hospitality Group presented the proposed site plan and zoning change. The hotel would be located at 1200 E. S.H. 114, a space that is currently owned by Gateway Church.
In 2007, the city council approved the current zoning on the property for the development of the Gateway Church campus, allowing for hotel district uses. The proposed hotel is a four-star, four-diamond facility, featuring 276 guest rooms and amenities, including a full-service restaurant, meeting and conference center and a rooftop pool. The hotel would be seven stories, span 6.8 acres and include a three-level parking garage.
The council unanimously approved the second meeting, giving permission for design and construction to happen immediately.

Dallas-based real estate investment fund Velocis bought a Colleyville shopping center, which is anchored by popular retail tenants. Velocis recently acquired Town Center Colleyville, which features a 138,000 square-foot shopping center on Colleyville Boulevard. The decade-old property has various tenants, including a Market Street grocery store as well as a Studio Movie Grill theater.
