ILSEM LLC, a limited liability corporation owned by John Tekmen, filed plans to build an 84-room hotel on Route 9, in Georgetown Delaware. The 16,000-square-foot hotel will be a Holiday Inn Express and would serve the Sandhill Fields sports complex that opened in September 2020, 1 mile east from the proposed hotel. The complex includes eight soccer and lacrosse fields, six pickleball courts, a 3.1 mile cross country trail, 3.5 miles of walking trails as well as a playground. In 2021, Sandhill Fields brought 108,000 visitors to Georgetown. That number is projected to grow, as the sports complex officials are taking on its next phase: a 1,800-square-foot field house. Tekman is going through the county planning process to build the hotel on 5 acres, and plans to use the remaining land for an 89-room assisted living facility and six apartments above retail buildings. The project was called Georgetown VillagesJohn Tekmen also own Semra’s Mediterranean Grill in Rehoboth Beach.
