LYNDHURST, Ohio -- This East Side suburb is set to gain its first hotel, as part of a $33 million proposed expansion of the Legacy Village shopping center.
First Interstate Properties, Ltd., hopes to build a 135-room Hyatt Place and a garage on the north side of Legacy Village. The buildings would replace a parking lot and would link to walkways opening onto the lifestyle center's main street.
Discussed in concept for years, the hotel project comes amid a flurry of new investment and repositioning at marquee East Side retail centers. But the Legacy Village update, unlike proposals brewing in Beachwood, Orange and Woodmere, doesn't involve more stores. Plans show a six-story hotel and a five-level, 355-space garage on a 2-acre site, east of Dick's Sporting Goods and Arhaus Furniture.
