HOUSTON - The development of a 225-room hotel has been announced in the GreenStreet mixed-use development in downtown. The Hotel Alessandra will be constructed on a block bounded by Main, Dallas, Polk and Fannin.

The Alessandra will be built on the site of a former Yao Restaurant & Bar. Demolition work will begin in June and the hotel plans to open third quarter 2016, in time for the expected crowds drawn by the Super Bowl in February 2017.

The hotel will feature a 25th-floor lobby, a rooftop pool and bar, and 7,000 sf of retail space.

Midway, the company that will own the Alessandra, hopes to position the hotel among “five-star” accommodations, such as the Four Seasons, St. Regis and Hotel Garnduca. Room rates will likely be on par with the Four Seasons, according to Jamie Bryant, executive vice president of Midway.
