Watertown’s massive Arsenal Yards project will include a Hampton Inn and Suites with approximately 145 rooms, the developers announced.

Recall that Boylston Properties and the Wilder Companies are constructing a more than 1 million-square-foot expansion and redevelopment of the Arsenal Mall site.

The project in total will include 350,000 square feet of retail and entertainment, including a 30,000-square-foot specialty grocery store. Arsenal Yards will also have 428 market-rate apartments and 75 affordable ones.

Prellwitz Chilinski Associates is handling the design and the planning for the project, one of the biggest underway in the Boston area.

As for the hotel, Hilton will operate it and there will be retail space on the first floor. It is planned for the northwest corner of the property, along Arsenal Street and adjacent to a parking garage, according to the developers.

It’s part of the first phase of Arsenal Yards slated to open in spring 2019.
