Cambria plans new hotel in White Plains
Cambria Hotels International is planning a new hotel in White Plains,
N.Y., according to a statement released by Cambria today. The project will be a
joint venture with Meyer Jabara Hotels, who will manage the property.
“We are excited to add the White Plains Cambria Suites to our
portfolio of hotels,” said William Meyer, chairman of Meyer Jabara
This is the third of the company’s New York area investments, after plans for a Cambria Suites hotel developed by Extell at 30 West 46th Street and another Cambria Suites hotel at 123-125 West 28th Street, were announced earlier this year.
The 130-room Cambria Suites will be part of a $47 million mixed-use
development located at 250 Main Street in downtown White Plains. When
complete, there will be 30,000 square feet of new retail space in one building and in an
adjacent building, 17,000 square feet of retail and office space. Construction on the retail portion of the development is
already underway, with hotel construction set to commence in March
2012. The property is anticipated to open in September 2013.
“The White Plains development reflects our commitment to expanding the
Cambria Suites brand in New York,” said Stephen Joyce, president and
CEO of Choice Hotels International. “The White Plains property will
provide great value to leisure and business travelers alongside the
two properties under development in New York City.”
The new property features a unique urban design, with the six-story
mid-rise hotel built on top of two stories of retail outlets, according
to the statement. There are currently 19 Cambria Suites properties
open across the country, with additional properties in development. —
