Southern Management Corp. scraps its plans for a limited-service Hyatt Place in favor of opening an eco-friendly boutique hotel designed by RD Jones + Associates.

Southern Management Corp. wanted its new hotel in Maryland’s fast-growing Arundel Preserve district to be a step above the other lodging choices in and around the nearby Baltimore/Washington International Airport. To that end, the developer scrapped its original idea of opening a limited-service Hyatt Place at the Arundel site, opting instead to go forward with plans for an eco-friendly, upscale boutique hotel.
