Hotel Melby

Our latest project is in the Florida Space Coast—Hotel Melby, a Tapestry Collection by Hilton in downtown Melbourne, Florida. This modern 180-room boutique hotel, with 24 corner suites, will be 11 stories tall and have a 170-space parking garage with 30 dedicated public parking spaces.

The hotel will have a fitness center and a spacious rooftop lounge with an indoor/outdoor terrace that has sweeping views of the surrounding area as it will be the tallest building in Melbourne. Hotel Melby will also have a 4,900 square foot state-of-the-art meeting and event space on the roof.

The Florida Space Coast is a thriving economic market suited for a premier hotel brand that will cater to local corporate leaders in the aviation, technology, aerospace, and defense industries such as NASA, Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, SpaceX, and Blue Origin. Due to the unique underwriting fundamentals of this project, it is projected to yield up to approximately two times the investment amount for investors upon an assumed sale in year five of the investment period.1
