Somehow we got onto this subject in the MF discussion thread. Perhaps it deserves to be split off into a thread of its own.

Maybe, The Marriott’s Manor Club at Ford Colony, Williamsburg, VA.
They probably could have added one more Sequel Building, Williamsburg, Va.

However, now I feel the residents in Ford Colony and the James City County government would not approve any new construction.IMHO.

Fairway Villas in NJ has an area that is semi paved that appears to be where 1 or 2 additional buildings were planned but never got built.

Third Building at Legend's Edge was not built and was built as a Condo originally Marriott Residence. Harbour Lake as mentioned. Horizon's in Gatlinburg and Myrtle Beach were never started. I think Willow Ridge had more buildings planned as well. I seem to recall that Doral had planned more buildings as well but am not certain. Original Plans for Crystal Shores were quite a bit different than the final product.

As was mentioned at the Annual Meeting, they are planning to finish the fenced area by the Enclaves, There looks to be new activity there now. No plans to do anything in the vacant area along Shadow Ridge Drive. Still a For Sale sign by the gate.

Willow Ridge in Branson was supposed to have another 6 or 7 buildings plus a second pool deck and hot tub. All that was ever built was 3 buildings. IMHO such a waste as it could have been a great resort

Was there a timeshare resort demand at this resort in Branson?
We have never been to Branson.

In Las Vegas, there is the huge open area between Las Vegas Blvd and the resort. If this area were to be developed for a Marriott time share, would it be done by a private developer and then managed by Marriott? Or would it be a Marriott owned and developed piece of property?

Ocean Pointe. The Pink Building next to Kingfish.
From what I recall, Marriott made an offer on the building, but a few owners held out for more thinking Marriott wouldn’t build around them. Obviously, they were wrong.

When we purchased in 2001 the resort map represented only 5 buildings, the 2 completed plus Cobia, Pompano and Kingfish. We were originally told those who bought in Kingfish would always be assigned Kingfish, and if we ever wanted to stay in that building, we’d have to buy a deed in Kingfish. Of course that proved to be untrue. I don’t think there was ever any real plans to build a sixth building. All the others had plans, maps and models showing all the proposed buildings or wings that haven’t been built.

That's awful news. A 43 story mega-hotel may block the views of the strip from many rooms in Towers 1 and 2. Also, a major project will mean noise for several years.
Maybe, they would build a 20 story mega hotel to retain the fabulous views of the strip.
