South Peak, the $200 million residential and commercial development atop a hill near Tanglewood Mall in southwest Roanoke County, is gaining steam.
Construction on a five-story Hilton Garden Inn is expected to begin in February or March and the first of five condominium buildings should be move-in ready by April 1, according to Will Holmes, senior vice president of development and construction for developer Smith/Packett.
The hotel will have 117 rooms, a restaurant and an indoor swimming pool, he said.
The first 100,000-square-foot condo building will house 32 units. When half are sold, Smith/Packett will start on the second building, Holmes said.
The developer also expects to begin paving streets and laying utilities for 23 single-family homes that will sit on 12 acres behind Lowe’s. The gated community will be called the Estates at South Peak.
The second phase of the project will bring a restaurant and shops to South Peak.
