Sudberry Properties and Tharaldson Development and Hospitality have started construction of a 100-room Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton at the new Breakwater Town Center on Palm Avenue.

The hotel, scheduled to open in early 2020, is a four-story, 62,000-square-foot project with “beach modern” architecture, a fitness center, breakfast and lounge area, business center and swimming pool.

The hotel is the final phase of Breakwater Town Center, a public-private partnership by the city and Sudberry Properties that serves as a gateway to Imperial Beach.

“The new Hampton Inn will not only provide a high-quality hotel for guests visiting the coolest beach town on the planet, but the revenues generated can be used to make improvements throughout the city that will be enjoyed by all of our citizens,” said Imperial Beach Mayor Serge Dedina.

Hotel guests will have easy access to Breakwater Town Center’s variety of eateries, including Baskin Robbins, Chipotle, Five Guys, Guahan Grill, Jersey Mikes, Poke 123, Starbucks and Wingstop, as well as national grocer Grocery Outlet.

“The growth of new retailers, restaurants, and homes in Imperial Beach, led by the opening of Breakwater Town Center, has been very encouraging,” said Colton Sudberry, CEO and president of the development firm.

He said Navy Base Coronado’s new coastal campus under construction nearby will boost demand for businesses throughout Imperial Beach.

Sudberry Properties has developed approximately 10 million square feet of commercial property with a market value exceeding $2.5 billion.
