NAI Realvest Closes on Land Near I-75 / SR 44 Interchange, Hotel Construction to Start by Mid-Octobe

Wildwood, Fla. – NAI Realvest recently closed on the $825,000 sale of 2.7 acres at County Road 229 and State Road 44 just east of the I-75 Interchange in Wildwood.

MPH Hotels, Inc. headed by Michael P. Holtz, a hotel developer / operator based in St. Petersburg, purchased the property to build a 92-room Holiday Inn Express that will break ground in mid-late October.

Kevin O’Connor and Matt Cichocki, principals of NAI Realvest, brokered the transaction on behalf of the buyer and the Winter Park-based seller 2511 Howell LLC whose principal is a local investor / owner of several businesses.

MPH currently has several hotels under development or open and operating throughout the Midwest and Florida. The Wildwood hotel is scheduled to open December 1, 2020.

“The SR 44 corridor between I-75 and The Villages has seen a strong surge of development activity since the expansion of The Villages to the south,” O’Connor said.
