Diamond Ranch Acreage Provides Rare Opportunity In College Station, TX For Residential Developers

February 20, 2018 by OLDHAM GOODWIN

College Station, Texas — Oldham Goodwin Group presents Diamond Ranch, a 552 acre, beautiful stretch of land in the highly sought-after south College Station area. Offerings for tracts of land this size are limited and very rare in the acclaimed College Station Independent School District.

Diamond Ranch’s proximity to the newest schools in the College Station ISD and the main campus of Texas A&M University as well as quick access to all major thoroughfares within the Bryan-College Station MSA make it a prime location for single-family residential developers.

The property is minutes from established suburban neighborhoods, retail amenities, regional healthcare services and some of the top schools in the area. With unique scenery and hilltop views, Diamond Ranch offers a rare opportunity to develop a community that values a quiet, country lifestyle.

College Station is also ranked number three on the list of 10 Greater Places to Live by Kiplinger magazine for businesses, jobs, families and retirees thanks to its small-town feel.

The continued growth in demand for single-family housing in College Station, led by the expansion of Texas A&M University and limited availability of land, creates a valuable opportunity to acquire large acreage tracts for master-planned communities. The property is listed for $11.8M and can be purchased in its entirety or subdivided.

Unique SpringHill Suites® In Fort Worth Stockyards Offers Celebrity Cuisine, City Views, And Cowtown Hospitality

January 16, 2018 by OLDHAM GOODWIN

DALLAS, TEXAS — There will soon be a new hotel in the historic Fort Worth Stockyards. Oldham Goodwin Group, LLC announces their development of a new, one-of-a-kind SpringHill Suites in collaboration with Texas-based general contractor Arch-Con Construction, Atlanta-based architect Niles Bolton Associates, and Dallas-based interior design firm Studio 11 Design.

“This is not your typical SpringHill Suites,” said Hunter Goodwin, President and COO of Oldham Goodwin Group. “We have customized the design to fit with the look and feel of the Stockyards, as well as incorporated many full-service concepts into our offered programming. The hotel will offer guests the opportunity to experience all that the Stockyards has to offer, including a skyline view of downtown Fort Worth and five-star cuisine.”

The 170-room, 133,000-square-foot hotel will feature a rooftop bar and restaurant by celebrity chef and Texas native Tim Love, who is best known for his signature “Urban Western” cuisine, creating inspired and innovative dishes that have earned critical and popular acclaim. Love is the chef and owner of beloved Texas restaurants – some of which are located within the Fort Worth Stockyards – including Lonesome Dove Western Bistro, Woodshed Smokehouse, Queenie’s Steakhouse, Love Shack, and the storied White Elephant Saloon. Construction is expected to take 17 months with an opening date in the summer of 2019.

“We are excited to have Tim Love on our team,” said Goodwin. “He created the culinary culture in the Stockyards and bringing his genius to our hotel rooftop can only further galvanize the Stockyards as a destination to play and stay.”

In addition to the restaurant, the top level of the hotel will house a presidential suite and a junior presidential suite. These suites are perfect for wedding parties, special events, or just a weekend getaway. They will offer spectacular views of the city and the Stockyards.

The new hotel will replace the recently-demolished, Wells Fargo bank building known as “the wedge” on North Main Street. It will utilize many historic elements from its past, like the vault door from the bank in the lobby for aesthetics. Much of the interior will reference local materials and sensibilities – large-scale, comfortable furniture will be placed throughout for a relaxing and casual atmosphere. Metal details and repurposed materials will create discovery moments that elevate the guests’ experience. Technology, while present, will be seamlessly integrated into spaces and furniture for flexibility in the public areas. Accent fabrics and modern artwork selections, such as collage groupings in the pre-function corridors, reference Comanche and Kiowa Nations, contributing to the authenticity of the hotel. Additionally, guestroom headboard wall covering will feature canvas field with metal rivets creating the design of a map of the area.

“Being from this area and spending lots of time patronizing the many establishments that make up this incredible town, we have been incredibly sensitive in capturing the essence of what “staying in the Stockyards” really means,” said Stacy Elliston, Principal of Studio 11 Design. “The area is steeped in history and tradition and we have no intention of disrupting that expectation for the guest. The material, finishes, colors, and details throughout these public spaces can immediately be recognized as those indicative of this history and these traditions – although used in non-literal, non-traditional, and unexpected ways. We are organically infusing what the modern traveler might want to experience and take away from the newest hotel in a historically significant city.”

“Arch-Con completed the intricate demolition of the bank building a few months ago,” said Mike Barbour, vice president of the Hospitality Division for Arch-Con. “And we are excited to move forward with the construction of the hotel that will represent this historic area well.”

The hotel also features a covered patio facing Main Street along with a first-floor wine bar, many different conference room options, including outdoor and rooftop meeting spaces, pool, ample parking, and three ballrooms on the first floor for events. You can expect to see the Springhill Suites Fort Worth Stockyards complete in early 2019.

SpringHill Suites Houston Northwest Rebuilds After Harvey With Help From Local Artists

December 06, 2017 by OLDHAM GOODWIN

HOUSTON, TEXAS – After sustaining major flood damage due to Hurricane Harvey, SpringHill Suites is in the midst of a complete rebuild of their first floor’s lobby, bar, and conference center. Artist Mario Ramos along with students from Lone Star College recently showed their community support by painting “Ode to Texas”, a beautiful Texas-sized mural, on the hotel’s makeshift lobby wall

“This was a great opportunity to give back to the state and city I love very much,” said Ramos. “I had the opportunity to use my talent to bring a little happiness and help the recovery by possibly uplifting spirits, so it was a no-brainer.” A second mural, “Houston United”, was also completed and is on display near the hotel’s back entrance.

This community relationship was formed in part due to the “Art of Local” – a local community art series from SpringHill Suites by Marriott. By showcasing the work of talented local artisans, Art of Local aims to inspire guests to explore each destination through art.

These murals can be viewed at SpringHill Suites Northwest, located at 20303 Chasewood Park Drive, Houston, Texas. SpringHill Suites Northwest is operated by Marriott International Inc., in conjunction with Oldham Goodwin Group, LLC.
