Thanks to lockmat for discovering this one. A Hyatt Regency is planned, but anyone know the exact location?

Makes sense that it would be near the Galleria, though honestly I think there is also a shortage of hotel space in/near the TMC.  I think that Mariott is almost always booked with out of town guests seeking medical treatment or there for a loved one.  I'm guessing the new hotels in downtown can accomodate some of them?

It looks like the low-rise portion of that rendering may be a re-hab of the existing shopping strip along Sage, with the hotel being added on the current surface lot at the corner of Sage and Alabama.

Does that mean they would demolish what's there? Simon Group had planned a 300 unit high rise in the corner of Sage and Alabama.

Looking at the map it seems that would be the only place to add something. Looks like they would extend the retail to the street too, doesn't it?

Towerspotter, do you have a reference for that? It's not ringing a bell for me.

Edit: that would be on the north east corner Towerspotter.

Sigh of relief.

This. I had noticed much of the shops there have started to vacate the past couple of weeks

An Atlanta developer has broken ground on a hotel next to the Houston Galleria, the newest real estate project in an area that's seen a surge of development in recent years.

 

The property, a 325-room Hyatt Regency, is being developed by a partnership between Songy HighRoads and the Carlyle Group at the northwest corner of Sage Road and West Alabama.

 

Most of the retail space will be demolished to make room for the new hotel.

Songy said the shopping space was only about half full when the property was purchased. Two retailers, a spa and a tailor, will stay in the complex.

 

Designed by Gensler, the Hyatt will have 350-square-foot rooms, 20 suites, 15,000 square feet of meeting space and a large fitness center overlooking a pool deck. The hotel will be 14 stories tall and total 260,000 square feet.

 

Aimbridge Hospitality will manage the property when it opens in late 2015.

I really wish someone would redevelop the lot across W Alabama from this along with the lot down rice on Hildago.

These lots are prime locations!

It's not. But Hyatt's just aren't what they used to be. Before they were anything but boring. This design looks like it could be any Marrihilaton. I'm sure it'll be nice though.

hey urbannizer, may you tell us upon whether or not if the "hyatt" has updated their hotel renderings?  as i recall, the previous and only renderings as per their galleria site, were pretty bland indeed.

HYATTS.jpg


although, i shall state that i am extremely happy regarding the new galleria area hotel construction.  not to mention, the overall density that this new edition shall undoubtably create.. however, why on earth,


didn't the developers, just plan vs construct a GRAND HYATT HOTEL in the very first place?  i for one, can certainly understand the concept distinctions. (catering to different age groups vs genres) etc.   


however, i shall have to state that i find it a bit alarming, that these atlanta based developers, to just waltz into the houston market.. brandishing such a profound silly season construction concept.


everyone knows that houston is famous for it's no zoning model.  however, isn't this a bit over the top?  two side by side hyatt brands with different missions, standing firm directly across the street.. from the houston galleria.


the westin oaks vs the westin galleria, are two 4**** hotels catering to the same upscale clientele.  these hotels, were conceptualized / constructed, to offer the foremost convenience as per it's clients.


one tower constructed upon the rear of the galleria.  the other constructed upon the front entry.  nonetheless, both westin towers, hold true to form vs consistency.. upon it's overall mission / standards.


the only difference being within the naming.. oaks vs galleria.

Yeah, why didn't they just plan vs. construct a RITZ CARLTON HOTEL at this location?

Heh.

Monarch, I believe a Grand Hyatt is going on 610 near the Landrys(?) HQ.

I thought Landry's owned the land south of its headquarters. I'd be surprised to see him allow another concept to be built there.

I don't know if the lot north of the Landry's HQ would have enough space to accommodate a Grand Hyatt.

Perhaps this is why the downtown Hyatt Place was cancelled??

 

I bet you're right. I personally would rather have a Hyatt Place in downtown.

i absolutely concur, houstontexasjack.  i have tried to explain to my good pal cloud713, quite a while back.. that a GRAND HYATT HOTEL, upon my foremost experience.. normally, requires a huge amount of space. There is a reason that this particular brand, is referred to as a GRAND HYATT.. it is huge!  i have harbored the utmost pleasure upon lodging at the GRAND HYATT DUBAI, UAE.  not only is this particular hotel simply gorgeous upon scope and scale.. it is also humongous, covering an extreme amount of prime dubai acreage.  i have also had the foremost pleasure of lodging at the GRAND HYATT HOTEL BALI, INDONESIA.  this particular hotel was modeled after a beach resort.  however, once again.. it was humongous, and again, covering an extreme amount of acreage.  this particular brand of hyatt hotel's.. offer an extreme amount of first class amenities, as per it's guest.  YOU NAME IT, YOU HAD BETTER BELIEVE THEY HAVE IT!

i see youve responded in the Grand Hyatt thread monarch (and here it is TexasJack). not sure where it was first reported to be a Grand Hyatt, but thats just what i was going off of. i agree, the property seems too small to fit one though, and think a large Grand Hyatt next to theGalleria would of been better, but what can you do?

Thanks for the link to the other thread cloud713. Getting back to topic, I am happy to see additional development next to the Hyatt Regency. A Hyatt Place fits the bill nicely for Uptown and gives Hyatt an offering between the Regency and Hyatt House concepts.

I've thought the Astroworld lot would be a great site for a Grand Hyatt. It would be a great convention hotel for OTC.
