Midas Hospitality and InSite Development to Develop Residence Inn in Lancaster, California

USA, Lancaster, California. August 14, 2019

After successfully raising $35 million in only four months for its first opportunity zone project, Midas Hospitality is going westward to stake its next claim.

Midas Hospitality, a leading hotel development, management and investment firm, recently announced its second opportunity zone fund that seeks to raise $12 million for a new Residence Inn located in Lancaster, Calif.

Midas will co-develop the $25 million, 107-room hotel along with Los Angeles-based InSite Development. Located at 857 W. Lancaster Blvd. in Lancaster, Calif., the hotel has a targeted groundbreaking date in late 2019 with a grand opening set for early 2021. Midas - which will manage the Residence Inn once it is built - currently owns and manages 38 hotels with eight more hotels to be added to its portfolio in the near future.

The Lancaster community is home to a thriving aerospace community that includes The Boeing Company, Lockheed Martin, and Northrop Grumman Corporation. Awarded the "Most Business-Friendly City" by the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation, Lancaster is on the northern edge of Los Angeles County in the heart of the Antelope Valley.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) recently created a new law which provides tax incentives for opportunity fund investments like Midas Hospitality's Lancaster project.

"We're excited to bring our approach of people, properties and informed investments to the west coast," said Midas Hospitality's Co-Founder and Managing Partner J.T. Norville. "We're eager to bring together a wide variety of investors to generate meaningful returns and significant tax benefits afforded by the Opportunity Zone legislation for the second time."

Hotel Spa: Back to Nature

As the Wellness Industry continues to expand, hotel spas are also diversifying, placing a greater emphasis on overall well-being. For some spas, this means providing clients with all-inclusive packages that include fitness classes, healthy dining, and offsite leisure activities, in addition to their core services. For example, spas near ski resorts are offering packages that include lift passes, pre-ski yoga sessions, after-ski dinners and spa treatments. Other spas are offering packages that include massages, saunas, mineral baths, hot springs, and recreational hiking and snowmobile activities. These kinds of spa offerings are also part of a "Back to Nature" movement that encourages guests to get out and experience the healing qualities of nature. One such therapy is the Japanese practice known as "forest bathing" which has become popular with spas that are near wooded areas. This practice relies on the ancient power of a forest for promoting a sense of health and well-being. Other spas are incorporating precious metals and stones into their health and beauty treatments - such as silver, gold, pearls and amber. Silver ion baths relax the body and mind, reduce fatigue, and restore energy balance. Gold keeps skin radiant and can even treat various skin diseases and infections, due to its antibacterial qualities. Amber is used to calm the nervous system and to relieve stress. Other natural products and therapies that are increasingly in demand include sound therapy, cryotherapy, infra-red saunas, and even CBD oil, which is being used in massages, facials and foot scrubs, providing a new form of stress relief. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will document these trends and other new developments, and report on how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
