CLEVELAND, Aug. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cleveland's metro area is the latest region to be the focus of Value Place's continuing rapid expansion across the U.S. In addition to the three existing corporate properties in Mentor, Akron-Green, and Avon, Ohio, Value Place has plans to develop six new corporate properties in the Cleveland metro area over the next two years. The Wichita, Kan.-based extended-stay hotel brand was founded by renowned hotelier Jack DeBoer, creator of Residence Inn, Summerfield Suites and Candlewood Suites.
Construction on the first 124-unit property is planned for January 2014. The company is working with Cleveland-based brokers Greg Slyman and Jason Jarchow of Kelly & Visconsi Associates LLC to explore possible sites and talk with landowners, brokers and commercial real estate firms (firstname.lastname@example.org and 216.269.5175 or email@example.com and 773.632.6349).
Value Place plans to grow aggressively within the Cleveland area and can close immediately on potential sites once a building permit is ready. Local companies will be hired for construction and communities will benefit from incremental tax revenue and from guest spending on food, entertainment, business supplies, fuel and other necessities.
"Value PlaceÕs operating model enables us to grow in any economic environment," says David Redfern, president of Value Place Development LLC. "Further expansion in the Cleveland market has the potential for consistently higher-than-average occupancy, as we offer a previously underserved demographic of guests with Value Place's clean, safe, simple, and affordable accommodations."
Value Place has developed strict guidelines for sourcing real estate. Two-acre sites that meet its requirements for all the following will be considered:
- Frontage to highways or thoroughfares with daily traffic of more than 50,000, including local and out-of-town traffic.
- A strong mix of non-retail employers with more than 150 local employees.
- Households or apartments within the one, two and five-mile area.
Value Place plans to acquire land and build corporate-owned hotels in other metro markets over the next three years, including Atlanta, Boston, Denver and southeast Florida. Interested landowners in these areas may contact Value Place Development at firstname.lastname@example.org.
