Seaside Lodging LLC recently celebrated its groundbreaking of a 64-room luxury hotel set to open next May in Seaside.
The ceremony included Seaside Lodging’s co-owners and project managers, as well as local business and political leaders.
The project’s general contractor is Deacon Construction, responsible for building the River Inn at Seaside, also a Seaside Lodging property. Project manager is Deacon’s Jeremy Miller; the architect is Mark Mead.
“We are shooting for the upscale hotel here…,” said Masudur Khan, co-owner and managing director of Seaside Lodging. “We are designing the hotel (such that) regardless of the age, we think that anybody that comes to hotel, whether they are young, mid-age or older … will have fun and a good time.
“Seaside needs this segment,” he said. “We are not competing with ourselves or with other hotels. We hope that we can bring new tourists to the city by building this hotel.”
The four-story property will be located at 250 1st Ave., previous site of the City Center Motel.
Seaside Lodging said the 38,000-square-foot hotel will have high-end amenities such as a saltwater swimming pool, meeting and fitness centers, and ocean views.
Seaside Lodging was established in 2009 and focuses on the ownership and management of what it calls upscale, mid-scale and economy hotels in Seaside.
