ORLANDO—Orange Lake Resorts and IHG have begun multiple construction projects at Holiday Inn Club Vacations Smoky Mountain Resort in Gatlinburg, TN. These projects are part of a substantial expansion of the existing resort.
Additions to the property will include a purpose-built, 27-unit building consisting of two-, three- and four-bedroom villas that will be a part of the company’s upscale Signature Collection Reserve portfolio. Additionally, the hotel will complete an 8,600-sq.-ft. indoor water attraction featuring a pool with waterslides and a themed, interactive children’s splash zone.
Through an affiliate, Orange Lake Resorts has also commenced construction of a 113-room Holiday Inn Express & Suites hotel, located adjacent to the existing resort.
WELBRO Building Corporation will act as general contractor for both projects. Construction on the projects is scheduled to be completed by the second quarter of 2016.
