A new application with the City of Meridian would build a unique combination hotel/apartment project near Eagle Rd. and Franklin Rd.
Oakwood WaterWalk hopes to build its latest project near RC Wiley. The 5.2-acre site, owned by Adler Industrial, would host the four-story combo concept.
Wichita-based Oakwood WaterWalk’s projects “offer both apartment rentals with the perks of hotel services and hotel suites with the furnished space you deserve when staying for a few nights,” according to promotional materials.
The typical hotel includes roughly 150 units. About half dedicated to unfurnished multi-family apartments and the other half for furnished extended stay-type hotel rooms. Units include one-, two-, and three-bedroom configurations.
The hotel/apartments feature included utilities, as well as TV, phone service, and Internet, priced at nightly or monthly rates. The units include kitchens and full-size washer and dryer. Like many hotels, the WaterWalk concept includes a fitness center, breakfast, housekeeping, and a front desk.
Oakwood WaterWalk currently offers six locations across the country, with another six announced – plus this new location in Meridian.
The project will need to pass design review with the City of Meridian.
