HiFive to Begin Construction in West Chester

The developers of the planned Centre Park of West Chester, a 116,000-square-foot hotel, conference, event and banquet center, are finalizing details for their project.

Middletown Hotel Management and HiFive Development Services are developing the center, which will be located at 5800 Muhlhauser Road in downtown West Chester. Bob Ritter, vice president of Beavercreek-based Middletown Hotel Management, said the final details of the project are still being worked out.

“The project is forthcoming. We’re excited about being down in that area,” Ritter said.

The Business Courier reported on the proposed development a year ago, when the land was sold for $1.3 million.

West Chester Township and West Chester Development Council says the project will include a full-service Holiday Inn & Suites, a 37,000-square-foot conference and event center, banquet hall and wedding chapel. The six-story hotel will have 130 rooms. In addition, the project will have a restaurant and lounge, indoor pool and hot tub, outdoor kids splash area, garden area and presidential suites.

The project is expected to take 18 months to complete. The project will generate 200 jobs during its construction and at least 30 to 40 jobs in the hotel when it opens.
