Montage International and The Robert Green Company to Develop SilverRock Resort in La Quinta, California

ORANGE COUNTY, CA. March 6, 2017 - Montage International and The Robert Green Company have reached an agreement today for the development of the SilverRock Resort in La Quinta, California. Breaking ground in summer 2017 and opening in late 2019, the development will include Montage La Quinta with branded Montage Residences, Pendry La Quinta with branded Pendry Residences, Spa Montage, an expansive catering and conference facility, state-of-the-art recreation center, multiple food and beverage outlets, a mixed-use village, and the 18-hole Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course.

This project represents the first joint development venture for Montage International incorporating its two hotel and resort brands, Montage Hotels & Resorts and Pendry Hotels. Architecture and design firm, Gensler, will work with Montage International and The Robert Green Company to develop the two properties which will feature a mid-century modern design aesthetic in keeping with their Coachella Valley location. Montage La Quinta will include approximately 140 guestrooms with a signature Spa Montage and fitness center along with three food and beverage outlets, multi-generational recreation center, resort pool, retail boutiques and the brand's signature Paintbox children's program. There will be 29 four and five bedroom Montage Residences with access to all of the resort's services and amenities. Pendry La Quinta will include approximately 200 guestrooms with three food and beverage outlets, fitness center with access to Spa Montage, resort pool and retail boutiques. There will also be 66 two and three bedroom Pendry Residences with access to all Pendry services and amenities. At the center of the community is the breathtaking 18-hole Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course which will be realigned and enhanced as part of the overall development.

"Having worked in the Coachella Valley early in my career, it is especially exciting to return with a dynamic development that is ideally suited for our Montage and Pendry brands," said Alan J. Fuerstman, founder, chairman and CEO, Montage International. "With The Robert Green Company, we will be bringing to the City of La Quinta an amazing resort unlike anything else in the desert. The architecture, design, amenities and most importantly, the extraordinary service that is the hallmark of Montage International, should be a perfect fit for the community."

"We are thrilled to have reached an agreement with Montage International to bring both Montage and Pendry to SilverRock Resort. There has never been a resort of this caliber in the desert and nothing of this scale developed in the desert in decades. We look forward to bringing a new level of luxury to this destination and to the City of La Quinta," said Robert S. Green, Jr., president and CEO, The Robert Green Company.

La Quinta is a natural extension for Montage International, with its current portfolio offering access to city, sea, ski, and Lowcountry escapes, and now the California desert.

Feature Focus
Architecture & Design: Authentic, Interactive and Immersive
If there is one dominant trend in the field of hotel architecture and design, its that travelers are demanding authentic, immersive and interactive experiences. This is especially true for Millennials but Baby Boomers are seeking out meaningful experiences as well. As a result, the development of immersive travel experiences - winery resorts, culinary resorts, resorts geared toward specific sports enthusiasts - will continue to expand. Another kind of immersive experience is an urban resort one that provides all the elements you'd expect in a luxury resort, but urbanized. The urban resort hotel is designed as a staging area where the city itself provides all the amenities, and the hotel functions as a kind of sophisticated concierge service. Another trend is a re-thinking of the hotel lobby, which has evolved into an active social hub with flexible spaces for work and play, featuring cafe?s, bars, libraries, computer stations, game rooms, and more. The goal is to make this area as interactive as possible and to bring people together, making the space less of a traditional hotel lobby and more of a contemporary gathering place. This emphasis on the lobby has also had an associated effect on the size of hotel rooms they are getting smaller. Since most activities are designed to take place in the lobby, there is less time spent in rooms which justifies their smaller design. Finally, the wellness and ecology movements are also having a major impact on design. The industry is actively adopting standards so that new structures are not only environmentally sustainable, but also promote optimum health and well- being for the travelers who will inhabit them. These are a few of the current trends in the fields of hotel architecture and design that will be examined in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
