    Development plans also call for a resort, golf courses and a convention center.

Wtih Frisco named the  “2018 Best Place to Live in America” by Money magazine, it’s no surprise that the PGA of America headquarters is relocating to the north Texas city. The PGA is planning a 600-acre, mixed-use development and is partnering with the Omni Stillwater Woods (OSW), a joint venture by Omni Hotels & Resorts with Stillwater Capital. In addition to two championship golf courses, a short course, practice areas and a clubhouse, the development will include Class AA office space, a 500-room Omni Resort and a 127,000-square-foot convention center. The golf courses are expected to open in the summer of 2022, and the hotel and convention center are expected to open within the following six months. The development will host the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship in 2023 as well as two PGA Championships, two KPMG Women’s PGA Championships and a potential Ryder Cup.  

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Sunday recommended that all gatherings of more than 50 people be cancelled or postponed for the next eight weeks, in order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. The recommendation covers events like parades, concerts, festivals, conferences, sporting events, weddings and more.

 

Modern ingenuity, local history and curiosity shape the foundation that will soon be home to the new Hyatt Centric Congress Avenue Austin hotel. Expected to open in the fall of 2021, Colorado-based real estate investor and developer McWHINNEY has big plans for this full-service lifestyle hotel.
