News: Hyatt Place Jacksonville under construction in US

Concord Hospitality has announced construction has started on Hyatt Place Jacksonville.

Located across the street from St. Johns Town Centre, the 160-room hotel, Hyatt Place Jacksonville, is scheduled to open in late 2018.

The property will be located at The Strand at St. Johns Town Centre, a new 45-acre, mixed-use development with retail, restaurants and apartment homes.

Hyatt Place Jacksonville will feature a five-story design with 160 guest rooms; the gallery, complete with 3,000 square feet of flexible meeting space; an outdoor pool and fitness centre; and an outdoor deck for social and private events.

“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, Concord Hospitality.

“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, and it is scheduled to open Hyatt Centric Brickell Miami in late 2017.
