Montage International in Irvine and lead developer Robert Green Co. in Encinitas said the companies would break ground this summer on the $360 million SilverRock Resort in La Quinta.
The project is the first that will include both a Montage Resort and a Pendry Hotel and the first with Pendry Residences—for-sale lodging akin to the Montage Residences concept at Montage Resort properties.
Montage Hotels & Resorts and Pendry are divisions of Montage International that attract different travelers. The resorts aim at a luxury guest while Pendry has to-date targeted a “lifestyle” hotel guest.
Montage has five resorts in the U.S., with one under development in Mexico; a Pendry hotel opened last month in San Diego and the second opens this month in Baltimore.
Robert Green Co. was lead developer on the Pendry San Diego.
Montage La Quinta will have 140 rooms and 29 residences; Pendry La Quinta will have 200 rooms and 66 residences. Plans for SilverRock also include a spa and pool, a half-dozen food and beverage offerings and retail.
The project is anchored by an existing Arnold Palmer Signature golf course that will be renovated as part of the work.
Robert Green Co. signed on to the project in 2014, according to news reports. The resort’s development had been delayed by various factors over previous decade, including the real estate downturn in 2008.
The city of La Quinta owns the land and golf course, which is run by Landmark Golf Management LLC in Indian Wells.
