Builders of a boutique hotel at the foot of the Santa Catalina Mountains hope to capture both equally company and leisure vacationers right after the pandemic is behind us when they open up for business enterprise following year.
Capri Inc. is setting up a two-story, 106-place resort following to St. Philip’s Church on Campbell Avenue, north of River Street, company president Jim O’Connell said.
Identified as The Eddy Resort, the 68,000-square-foot venture is named just after O’Connell’s grandfather, who ran a bakery in Helena, Montana.
“It really is a wonderful area among the foothills and the University of Arizona,” O’Connell claimed. “Not to point out all the excellent dining places within walking distance.”
There are a number of eating places at the intersection of Campbell Avenue and River Highway, each in the St. Philip’s Plaza at the southeast corner and in Joesler Village, on the northwest corner.
The Eddy Resort is a Tapestry brand name, a franchise of Hilton Resorts, so guests can use their Hilton rewards and Hilton’s on the net web page for reservations.
It will have a buffet assistance in the lounge and a bar that is open up to the community, alongside with 3,000 sq. ft of conference or occasion area.
The space was the site of a proposed annexation by the town of Tucson in 2019 when builders required it rezoned for a four-story hotel and detached restaurant. The existing zoning is restricted to two stories.
