According to Orange County Business Journal (OCBJ), SCG America has been selected as the lead to develop Grove District Hotel Resort Development, with up to three hotel towers, also known as Site-C.
According to a memorandum from the City of Garden Grove, the hotel resort project was approved by the city council in November 2012.
The State Department of Finance in December 2012 found the Disposition and Development Agreement between the defunct redevelopment agency and the developer as "...to not be an 'Enforceable Obligation' of the former Agency".
In light of the finding, on April 9, 2013 the City of Garden Grove went into an agreement with the developer Land & Design, Inc. known as Grove District Resort Hotel Development Agreement. This agreement is similar to the one that was created between the redevelopment agency and the developer.
Land & Design, Inc. proposed to designate SCG America to take the lead in attempting to construct the resort hotel under a joint venture named Investel Garden Resorts, LLC. The Garden Grove City Council approved the transfer on June 28, 2016.
The 5 acre site project consists of planned up to 769 hotel rooms, 39,000 sq ft conference space, a parking structure, and a total of 20,000 sq ft for restaurant(s).
SCG America is not a new comer when dealing with hotels in the resort area. In October of last year, SCG America purchased the 17 story 656 hotel room Hyatt Regency Orange County from Xenia Hotels & Resorts for $137 million in cash.
OCBJ states the developers anticipate breaking ground in 2018 with the first hotel project to be completed in 2020.
Renderings can be found at Land & Design, Inc. and the architect is Langdon Wilson International.
SCG America is a subsidiary of the Shanghai Construction Group, a Chinese Developer. SCG America is also aiming to construct a 34 story high rise condominium project (about 450 residential units) in Downtown Los Angeles known as Broadway @ 4th.
