A Jacksonville-based limited-service hotel operator is partnering with Corner Lot Development Group to build a Home2 Suites by Hilton in Brooklyn. 

Kelco Management and Development Inc. and Corner Lot are planning the 100-room hotel at 600 Park St. on land that is a parking lot for GuideWell Inc. employees, according to WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record.

Driver, McAfee, Hawthorne & Diebenow partner Cyndy Trimmer outlined the project Nov. 12 at a Downtown Development Review Board workshop.

Renderings and a site plan show a ground-floor restaurant with outdoor seating on the Rosselle Street side of the hotel and a surface parking lot screened by landscaping on the Chelsea Street side. 

Corner Lot CEO Andy Allen said Nov. 13 the development partnership still is editing final designs for the estimated $17 million project to give it “a more urban feel.”

Kasper Architects + Associates is the project designer.

Kelco President Kelley Slay said the finished Home2 Suites predominantly will be windows and glass on the ground floor. 

He said in a phone interview Nov. 13 that Kelco and Corner Lot are considering extending the restaurant space to the Park Street side if the city’s planned road diet increases pedestrian traffic.
