Developers Announce Plans for Oxford Hotel/$10 Million Project Includes 80-120 Rooms

June 10, 2013 - Oxford — Plans to build a 80-120 room hotel on Route 26 directly across from the Oxford Casino were announced Thursday by representatives of Casalinova Development Group and GIRI Hotel Management, the companies developing the new property.

According to Glen Holmes, director of the Western Maine Economic Development Council, the estimated cost of the project is $10 million and it is expected to create between 80 and 120 permanent jobs when it is completed.

GHM, which operates hotels in Freeport, August, Waterville and Brunswick, as well as locations in Massachusetts and Connecticut, will be the owner-operator of the hotel. The company is expected to announce the name of the hotel flag in coming weeks, according to a press release.

Joseph J. Casalinova, a local Oxford developer, will represent the owners of the land the hotel will be built on.

According to a press release from the developers, phased development of the project consists of approximately 80 rooms in phase I, with additional rooms, conference space and a family-style restaurant added in phase II.

Holmes said the developers were working to break ground on the project as soon as possible and estimated the hotel would be open by spring 2014.

A major component of the project is the construction of a new waste water treatment facility by the town of Oxford and the extension of sewer lines from the facility's location at Welchville Dam south on Route 26 towards Mechanic Falls.

The town has been working on the sewer project for the better part of a year and expects to complete the first part of the project this summer.

“Without the commitment and support of the town of Oxford, this project could not have happened,” Casalinova said in a press release.

The developers also thanked Town Manager Michael Chammings, Oxford Hills Chamber of Commerce Director John Williams and the Oxford Casino.
