The Mathis Report: Residence Inn planned near Mayo Clinic; Beaver Motors buys Riverside Chevrolet

155-room hotel will be built at San Pablo Road.
Aug. 28, 2018

A 155-room, seven-story Residence Inn by Marriott is planned on about 3 acres at 4915 San Pablo Road S. as part of a 17.4-acre development at San Pablo Road and Dixie Landing Drive.

The developer is Hotel Development Partners LLC of Atlanta. The civil engineer is Prosser Inc.

Called San Pablo Place Hotel on plans, the project doesn’t identify a hotel brand. However, Hotel Development Partners says on its website that its Fund III has begun with the Residence Inn Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville.

Plans filed with the St. Johns River Water Management District show it comprises 114,906 square feet of space, including 1,800 square feet of meeting space, a pool and patio.

The property is owned by Steinemann San Pablo LLC. Steinemannco.com shows San Pablo Place as a 16-acre site for “upscale mixed-use” to include hotel and retail space.

Mayo Clinic is north of the site.

Hotel Development Partners CEO Allen O’Brien said the group expects to break ground early in the first quarter and open in fall 2020. 

He said the hotel will include brand standard finishes and amenities similar to those at the group’s Residence Inns in Miami Beach Surfside and Perimeter Center/Dunwoody.
