Developers for Waterfront Square are preparing to begin the process of bringing a hotel to Revere Beach – specifically on the parcel of land on the beach side of Wonderland Station.
Joe DiGangi, of EuroVest, announced late last week that the project is preparing to welcome the addition of a Marriott hotel to the beachfront.
“We are in the process of finalizing the documents,” he said. “To date, Marriott has approved the site, and they have brought on board one of their preferred hotel developers/operators.”
Mayor Dan Rizzo said it was a another bit of good news and added it to a list of recent accomplishments. He said he was glad to see that project picking up in the commercial development side.
The overall development of Waterfront Square began in earnest several years ago with the construction of the Wonderland Parking Garage and the Wonderland Pedestrian Bridge.
However, residential development began last summer closer to Revere Street where apartment buildings are under construction with hundreds and hundreds of units.
DiGangi said they would begin working within the process to bring the hotel development to the parcel near the station.
“Over the next 60 to 90 days, we will be working on finalizing the brand selection, the design, and reviewing the documents,” he said. “We will also start workshop meetings, with Conservation Commission, Site Plan Review, the Revere Beach Design Review Board and a few others.”
