Eastvale Hamner Place Breaks Ground on July 12
Eastvale– On Friday, July 12, the City celebrated the Groundbreaking of Hamner Place, Eastvale’s newest Shop-Dine-Stay destination. Hamner Place will be located off Hamner Avenue and Schleisman Road.
“The City of Eastvale is committed to enhancing the quality of life for Eastvale residents by creating places for people to connect and have community. Hamner Place will do just that, while elevating Eastvale and putting our city on the map!” stated City officials.
Over the years, Eastvale residents have suggested multiple dining choices and options they would like to see in the City of Eastvale. Therefore, this past year, the City surveyed all their restaurants to identify what type of dining options were missing.
“We also conducted a Restaurant Feedback Questionnaire to better understand the community’s ideas on future development of restaurants in our community,” stated Olivia Applegate, Public Information Officer, in a news release.
“It was important to the City of Eastvale that residents help lead us in the right direction as we focus on recruitment and attraction as part of Economic Development,” she added.
Since then, city officials have been diligently trying to identify how to elevate dining experiences in Eastvale. City officials have met with restaurateurs and have created a Restaurant Ad-Hoc committee in an effort to reach this goal.
In result, the following establishments have been determined as the best additions to Hamner Place: Heroes Restaurant & Brewery, Tony’s Chop House, Starbucks, and Staybridge Suites by IHG.
Heroes Restaurant and Brewery is a family restaurant that serves great American food and quality hand craft beers. They are expected to open in summer of 2020.
In addition, Tony’s Chop House is a brand new concept created by The Meat Cellar, and will be completely unique to Eastvale. Tony’s Chop House will feature all of the amazing steaks and chops that The Meat Cellar offers but will have an elevated ambiance and a variety of added menu items.
Lastly, Eastvale’s very first hotel, Staybridge Suites by IHG, will open in Hamner Place in 2021. Staybridge Suites is a 4.5 star, 120-room hotel that features a rooftop bar, conference and event center, pool with cabanas, and is the only hotel with vegan food options in the Inland Empire.
Hamner Place is expected to bring in more jobs, sales tax revenue, and transient occupancy tax (TOT) to the city. Since TOT is the tax that hotel guests pay during their hotel night stays, the city of Eastvale will see these TOT funds for the first time after Staybridge Suites opens.
In addition, to help lower the traffic into the City, the Hamner Avenue Bridge Widening project will begin after the completion of the Limonite Avenue I-15 Interchange Project, which is expected to be completed by November 2019. The Hamner Avenue Bridge will consist of three lanes, north and south directions, which will be plenty of room for travelers to reach Hamner Place.
“We want to thank Lewis Companies and Retail Centers for their vision for Hamner Place. They are the definition of turning challenges into opportunities and a part of making the impossible, possible,” stated a City news release.
“Stay tuned for more exciting news regarding dining and entertainment experiences coming to Eastvale!”
