TownePlace Suites earns LEED-Silver designation

Posted online
Nearly three years after it opened, Springfield’s TownePlace Suites by Marriott was awarded Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design-Silver status by the U.S. Green Building Council.

The 2009 S. National Ave. hotel located kitty-corner to Mercy Hospital Springfield was noted for energy-saving measures that include electric vehicles recharge stations, solar power, water-efficient landscaping, low contaminant-emitting building materials and green housekeeping practices, according to a news release.

“We are constantly maintaining a keen awareness of what matters to guests, like sustainability,” hotel General Manager Andrew Lucero said in the release.

The $10 million, 110-unit TownePlace Suites opened in October 2014. It was designed by architecture firm Baron Design & Associates LLC and built by Larry Snyder & Co. to meet LEED-Silver standards. Owned by RTT Hospitality LLC and managed by O'Reilly Hospitality Management LLC, the the 70,000-square-foot hotel represents a partnership between Rita Baron of architecture firm Baron Design, Terry Reynolds of C. Arch Bay Co. and Tim O’Reilly of O’Reilly Hospitality, according to Springfield Business Journal archives.
