A new $13-million hotel is slated for a medical complex in the area.

Orion Real Estate Solutions, a division of Grand Rapids-based Orion Construction, and Chicago-based Gateway Investment Partners said today they plan to build a four-story, 107-room Home2 Suites by Hilton on a two-acre footprint at the 170-acre Metro Health Village in Wyoming.

Construction on the 57,000-square-foot project at 2160 Metro Lane SW is expected to start this spring and be completed by spring 2018.

The hotel will be managed by AHC+Hospitality and likely hire 50 full-time employees.

The project's architect is Grand Rapids-based Concept Design, and the project's contractor is Orion Construction. Funding will be secured through a local bank.

The hotel will feature ADA and bariatric rooms for patients and families of Metro Health, which is part of University of Michigan Health, as well as rooms for business and leisure travelers.

The hotel project will also have a restaurant and bar concept with “health-conscious menu items,” fitness center and pool with therapy sessions.

“Every detail, convenience and accommodation has been created with the patient and families in mind, and it’s a format we’re very familiar with,” said Pamela Opyd, VP, Gateway Investment Partners.

Gateway Investment Partners recently completed a nine-story, 276-room hotel adjacent to the Cleveland Clinic.

The project is the second hotel Orion has built for a Hilton location, with the DoubleTree by Hilton in Port Huron being the first.
