Ormond Beach hotel project: 5 things to know

ORMOND Seashore — An out-of-state real estate improvement group recently bought two beachside houses together A1A in Ormond Seashore with designs to build each an oceanfront lodge as well as a retail/household complex across the road.

Below are 5 issues to know about the “Ormond Seaside Lodge” venture:

1. It will be a Residence Inn by Marriott

This is a rendering of what the planned Residence Inn by Marriott Ormond Beach will look like upon completion. The planned five-story, 137-room extended-stay hotel will be built on a two-acre oceanfront property at 251 S. Atlantic Ave. in Ormond Beach.

The preliminary web page map submitted to the metropolis describes the undertaking as the “Ormond Beach front Lodge” but “it is going to become a Home Inn by Marriott,” confirmed land-use lawyer Rob Merrell of Cobb Cole, who represents the project’s developer, Greenville, South Carolina-based Blackstream Development.

The five-tale, 137-area prolonged-keep lodge at 251 S. Atlantic Ave. in Ormond Seashore will be the 3rd Home Inn by Marriott in the Volusia-Flagler area. Now, there is one 9.5 miles to the south in Daytona Beach Shores, at 3209 S. Atlantic Ave. The other is roughly 9 miles to the south and west at 1725 Richard Petty Blvd., subsequent to Daytona Seashore Intercontinental Airport in Daytona Beach front.

2. The oceanfront website has been residence to lodges right before

This is a screenshot of a vintage postcard for the old oceanfront Alaskan Motel at 251 S. Atlantic Ave. in Ormond Beach. The seven-story hotel was built in the 1970s and later became a Quality Inn and then the Surfside Resort & Suites. It closed in 2004 and was torn down in 2010. A South Carolina real estate development group bought the 2-acre property in January 2022 with plans to build a new five-story hotel.

The two-acre ton wherever the Home Inn by Marriott Ormond Beach front is at this time vacant, but it has been property to a number of motels dating back to the 1970s when a developer named Jacob Fine built a seven-tale lodge known as The Alaskan Motel. High-quality at the time also owned The Plaza Resort in Daytona Beach front, according to a heritage of The Plaza Resort posted on-line at tranzon.com. A classic postcard from the late ’70s of The Alaskan explained it as featuring 139 oceanfront rooms.” “It had to be rebuilt quite a few a long time afterwards and turned The Top quality Inn Oceanside in 1984,” claimed regional background buff Don Williamson of Ormond Seaside. It then became a hotel known as the Surfside Vacation resort & Suites, which shut after the hurricanes in 2004. The resort was demolished in 2010.

3. The other web site was a hospital

This undated photo most likely from the early 1960s shows the original hospital that stood at 264 S. Atlantic Ave. in Ormond Beach: the Ormond Beach Osteopathic Hospital that opened in 1955 and later became Florida Hospital Oceanside. The hospital was torn down in 2019 and the property was purchased on May 5, 2022 to developers planning a hotel across the street. They plan to use the former hospital site for additional hotel parking as well as retail and possibly homes and office space.

Blackstream on Could 5 also acquired the 4.25-acre vacant assets across the road at 264 S. Atlantic Ave. with options to develop extra parking for the hotel as effectively as 15 single-family residences. The web page utilised to be a hospital that opened in 1955 as the Ormond Beach Osteopathic Clinic. “The original hospital was constructed there by Dr. John Hull Sr.,” explained Williamson. “In 1967, they absorbed the Howard Johnson’s (cafe) to the south and never ever appeared back.” The medical center began with 12 beds and inevitably grew to have 80. It was renamed the “Peninsula Health care Heart” in the 1980s and then turned Florida Medical center Oceanside just after it was obtained by AdventHealth. Florida Hospital Oceanside closed and never ever reopened following sustaining comprehensive hurt from Hurricane Irma in September 2017. The developing was torn down in 2019.
