There will soon be a new edition to the grounds at the Outlets at Corpus Christi Bay, as the group is planning to bring a brand of Hilton Hotels to the area.

The Outlets will break ground on the brand new hotel this summer. The Tru by Hilton property will be the first of it's kind in the Coastal Bend and will cater to shoppers and visitors to the Richard M. Borchard Fairgrounds.

Outlets at Corpus Christi Bay developer, Rick Carduner, stated, "As we approach our one-year anniversary at the Outlets at Corpus Christi Bay, we are thrilled to celebrate it with the announcement of this exciting development. Our hotel partners share our desire to bring genuine hospitality to the visitors of Robstown, Corpus Christi and the Coastal Bend, and we believe the beautiful Tru by Hilton hotel will do just that. This is an important next step in the long-term vision we have for this community."

After the inital groundbreaking this summer, it will take crews about 18-months to complete construction on the 80+ guest room facility.
