Land at the corner of Hugh Wallis and Kaliste Saloom roads is being cleared to make way for a 124-room Value Place hotel, local government records show. The site is near the railroad tracks on Evangeline Thruway, just across from Lafayette Regional Airport.
The 11,570-square-foot project at 200 Hugh Wallis Road is still moving through the permitting process. (Tax assessor records indicate the property is owned by JGT Investments.)
The Wichita, Kan.-based chain, which has Louisiana locations in Alexandria, Baton Rouge, Lake Charles, New Orleans and Shreveport, according to its website, calls itself the nation’s largest extended-stay hotel brand. It has approximately 200 hotels open and under development in 35 states. The company owns 82 of the properties and provides management services for both company- and franchise-owned locations.
A phone message left with Kansas-based BRR Architecture, the firm listed as the contact in local government records, was not immediately returned.
