The plans include a hotel, residential community, restaurants and retail space, which will all be situated within two towers.
Parke West will also have a 450-space underground parking structure that will serve both towers.
Developed, owned and managed by Nashville-based Chartwell Hospitality, the nine-story hotel is a dual-branded Hilton Garden Inn and Home2 Suites by Hilton. The hotels will feature a shared lobby and amenities, including a lobby bar and restaurant, fitness center, rooftop pool deck and approximately 4,000 square feet of flexible meeting space.

Plans for the 15-story, multifamily tower includes 210 one- and two-bedroom units. Community amenities will include a 12th floor outdoor swimming pool and deck, dog spa and a 24-hour concierge. Between the towers will be a courtyard featuring open-air, landscaped terraces. Approximately 11,000 square feet of commercial space on the ground level will house restaurants with outdoor seating, service providers, boutique retail and other businesses.
