It has the retail, it is planning the multifamily, but the next step for the Singing Hills development in far North San Antonio is its own hotel.

Presidian Hotels & Resorts — a San Antonio-based hotel owner, operator and developer — has officially broken ground on a new 87-room Hampton Inn by Hilton hotel along with a 5,300-square-foot convention center with meeting, office and pre-function space.

Located about 13 miles north of the Highway 281 and Loop 1604 intersection, the hotel will be at the epicenter of the activity surrounding North San Antonio, Boerne and New Braunfels, the last of which was recently deemed the fastest growing city in the country.

Along with the benefits of being surrounded by multiple high-growth areas, the hotel will also be in a master-planned community that, once finished, will have more than 246,150 square feet of retail, more than 350 residences, multifamily, an entertainment venue, 25 additional sites available for a variety of uses, as well as a potential for office space.

The 250-acre Singing Hills' most recent additions include a 200,000-square-foot Wal-Mart supercenter, a Security Service Federal Credit Union, and a mix of quick-service restaurants.

The Hilton-branded concept will be part of Hampton's Forever Young design initiative. So essentially, it's the company's attempt to appeal to millennials and a younger demographic of traveler.

Once completed by late summer 2017, the hotel will remain in Presidian's hands and be managed by the local company.
