Pierce County, Wash, has selected a team of local developers that includes Seattle’s top restaurateur for the $45 million resort-style project being developed around the University Place, Wash. golf course. The bar and grill being proposed would be Douglas’ first outside Seattle.
Chambers Bay Development LLC and Valiant Washington have each submitted proposals to build a $45-50 million project that would include a hotel, restaurant, and clubhouse adjacent to the University Place, Wash., golf course. The county will choose between the two proposals after a public forum is held September 8. In Bend, Ore., Pronghorn Resort has begun work on Huntington Lodge, a three-story, 104-room hotel that’s expected to open by fall 2017.
