During a public hearing on Monday, October 23, the Pleasant Prairie Plan Commission considered and sent a recommendation to the Village Board to approve site and operational plans including a digital security system and access easement for a four story, 108 room, Fairfield Inn and Suites Hotel. The request was made on behalf of Varin Kenosha Land Partners I, LLC, owners of the vacant land located between 120th Avenue and 108th Street just off Interstate 94 and HWY 165. The developer also requested a certified survey map to subdivide the property into two parcels. Two additional retail, service, or restaurant buildings will also be located on the southern portion of the development in the future. The entire property will be rezoned into a Planned Unit Development Overlay (PUD) District. The PUD ordinance sets forth the type of buildings and their uses throughout the development.
The four story Fairfield Inn and Suites hotel will include an indoor pool, fitness center, lounge, and breakfast area with an outdoor patio. There will be a printing area and a small market for the convenience of guests as detailed in the Site and Operational Plans. The hotel will be built of brick with pearlescent accent composite that reveal panels and cultured stone.
Jean Werbie-Harris stated that, “The addition of another hotel in Pleasant Prairie will better serve the needs of our growing community, as well as accommodate the many visitors that we host at the Pleasant Prairie RecPlex facility on a weekly basis.”
The developer anticipates starting construction in November 2017 with the project being completed the fall of 2018.
