Construction has begun on the $20-million Beverly Heritage Hotel, the second of Northview Corp.'s planned coast-to-coast chain of upscale, mid-priced hotels, and now the latest element of a 100-acre urban complex being developed in Costa Mesa by Transpacific Development Co.
The first Northview hotel opened last year in the Silicon Valley near the San Jose airport. The Beverly Heritage is scheduled for completion in spring, 1986, and future plans call for the addition of a 100-room tower.
The new hotel's neighbors at the intersection of the San Diego and Newport freeways will include the South Coast Metro Center, a 50-acre office complex of which the first 12-story tower is finished, a second under construction and a third about to begin; the Lakes, a 600-unit residential development, an adjoining 20,000-square-foot retail center, and a 3.3-acre greenbelt of parks, open spaces, a lake and another hotel.
The 238-room Beverly Heritage is located at Avenue of the Arts and Town Center Drive on a three-acre site diagonally across the street from the new Orange County Performing Arts Center.
