The city government of Tamarac will consider a proposal to build a five-story, extended-stay hotel next to a country club.

Developer Justin Schmidt proposed a 127-room Home2 Suites by Hilton adjacent to the Woodmont Country Club.

The city’s Development Review Committee is scheduled to discuss the proposed hotel at a meeting on Thursday at Tamarac City Hall.

According to Schmidt, the Woodmont Country Club has a contract to sell land to Palmeira Holdings LLC for construction of the proposed Home2 Suites by Hilton.

Schmidt told the Sun Sentinel the land sale is pending city approval of the hotel project. He declined to disclose the contractual price.

In 2006, Schmidt’s father, Mark Schmidt, who owns the Woodmont Country Club, proposed the construction of homes and a hotel on the club’s golf course.

The Tamarac City Commission rejected those plans but subsequently approved a proposal by Atlanta-based Pulte Homes to build 152 houses on Woodmont’s golf course.

The proposed hotel would be located less than two miles from another one, a Fairfield Inn by Marriott now under construction on a site along Northwest 88th Avenue, next to the Colony West municipal golf course.

The area is economically robust and “can easily accommodate our hotel,” said Karim H. Ismail, co-CEO of Palmeira Holdings. [Sun-Sentinel]Mike Seemuth
