Concord Hospitality began construction on Hyatt Place Jacksonville, a 160-key hotel scheduled to open in late 2018.
The five-story property will feature the Gallery, which will offer 3,000 square feet of meeting space, an outdoor pool, a fitness center and an outdoor deck for events. The asset will be part of The Strand at St. Johns Town Center, a 45-acre, mixed-use development comprising residential, retail, restaurant and hotel space.
“As the area continues to grow, so does the demand for a thoughtful, modern, refreshing and stylish hotel designed with guest needs in mind,” said Mark Laport, president & CEO of Concord Hospitality, in prepared remarks. “The Hyatt Place brand could not be a better fit and we are looking forward to expanding our offerings in the Florida market.”
Concord operates two additional Hyatt-branded properties in Florida: Hyatt Place Miami Airport and Hyatt Centric South Beach Miami. The company also plans to open Hyatt Centric Brickell Miami in late 2017.
