A new, 22-story Hyatt Centric Hotel has topped-out just a short walk from Bryant Park and Grand Central Terminal. Located at 16 East 39th Street, the hotel will include 162 short-stay rooms, a rear courtyard, along with restaurant and lounge areas positioned on both ground and rooftop levels. In total, the hotel will comprise 77,858 square feet.
The through-block development is positioned on a two-lot assemblage acquired by McSam Hotel Group from ClearRock Properties and Juster Properties.
According to Gene Kaufman Architects, the lead design team for the hotel, the development introduced a number of construction and design challenges including the partial demolition of a large section of a neighboring structure that wrapped around the original building on-site.
Today, the boutique hotel is expected to open sometime in 2019.
