The Colony, Texas — February 9, 2017 — National real estate developer Jackson-Shaw and top national hotel operator Crescent Hotels & Resorts announced the completion of seven million dollars in enhancements and new construction at the Cascades 110-acre mixed use development. The recent opening of The Courtyard, along with renovations at the Residence Inn and Fairfield Inn, and the nearly completed four local restaurants called “The Oasis” will create an exceptional guest experience for business and leisure travelers.

Cascades was developed by Jackson-Shaw to establish a dynamic and growing commercial environment along the north side of Sam Rayburn Tollway (SH121) and just west of the Dallas North Tollway. Boasting more than sixteen million square feet of nearby corporate headquarters and regional offices, Cascades is well-positioned to meet both existing and increasing hospitality demand from both travelers and local residents.

The Cascades Residence Inn and Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott have recently completed property-wide renovations, featuring a complete redesign of all guestrooms and public spaces that include contemporary furnishings as well as modern interior design. The landscaping and exterior setting is enriched to showcase the property’s outdoor entertainment areas, a newly installed dog park and meeting room space totaling over six thousand square feet.

Cascades offers all of the comforts of home, whether you are ambitious and enterprising, stress free and no nonsense, or accustomed to life on the go. Guests can enjoy an entrée or beverage at the Courtyard Bistro, sit with friends around the fire pit or basketball court at the Residence Inn, attend a meeting in one of the modern meeting rooms at the conference center, or simple enjoy a stress-free relaxing stay laying by one of the three outdoor pools.

“At the Cascades Marriott properties, we are always focused on improving the visitor experience,” said Michele Wheeler, President and Chief Operating Officer of Jackson-Shaw. “We are actively engaged in finding ways to rethink, renovate and revitalize every touch point for the benefit of our guests.”
