Developed by New York hotelier Sam Chang, a new 180,000-square-foot Hyatt Place has officially topped-out, yielding one of the largest hospitality developments in the Garment District and Times Square neighborhoods of Midtown, Manhattan.
The 25-story Hyatt Place will offer 518 guest rooms and just under 7,000 square feet of dining areas, including an indoor restaurant, a backyard eatery, and a ground floor bar/lounge. Lower-level amenity areas include a fitness center, a business center and private meeting space.
Gene Kaufman Architect, frequent collaborator of Sam Chang’s McSam Hotel Group, is credited as architect, with Paul Vega of VLDG Inc. at the helm of interior design.
Nine additional hotels located on the same stretch of West 39th and 40th Streets between 8th and 9th Avenues have been designed by Gene Kaufman. Hyatt Place establishes a 10th outpost for the architect in the neighborhood, with the sum total of his work now resulting in 3,000 guest rooms and 1,000,000 square feet of hotel space.
