Roedel Companies Breaks Ground on Homewood Suites Hotel at Riverbridge in Berlin, Mass.

WILTON, NH – With an active construction site as the backdrop, members of Roedel Companies were joined by representatives of the Riverbridge development and Hilton Worldwide to break ground on the Homewood Suites by Hilton at Riverbridge in Berlin, Mass.

Construction of the hotel, which is expected to open in 2018, is already underway. The hotel is a central component to Riverbridge, a mixed-used village on a 114-acre property adjacent to the Solomon Pond Mall. This is the 11th hotel owned or operated by Roedel Companies.

Chris Senie, President of Riverbridge, said Roedel Companies was sought out to be the hotel builder and operator after an extensive search. This is the first time Roedel Companies has worked with the Connecticut-based real estate developers.

“We were excited when Chris and Matt Senie approached us. It’s a great project to be part of,” says David W. Roedel, Business Development Officer for Roedel Companies. “We love the location and the proximity not just to the Solomon Pond Mall, but also the New England Sports Center.”

Rep. Harold Naughton presented David Roedel with a citation from the Massachusetts House of Representatives to commemorate the event. Naughton is the state representative for the 12th Worcester District, which includes Berlin.

“Everyone, including the development team, local and state officials and the banks have been great to work with,” Roedel says. “There is a real commitment to this area and potential for great growth.”

Karen Whitman, Senior Director of Development for Hilton Worldwide, was also on hand.
