A 22-story Hyatt Centric hotel in Midtown, Manhattan is on track to open this summer according to a recent update from the project team. The new building is located at 16 East 39th Street and will debut as Hyatt Centric 39th & 5th once a Certificate of Occupancy is issued by the Department of Buildings.
Designed by Gene Kaufman Architect and developed by McSam Hotel Group, the 244-foot-tall building comprises approximately 77,858 square feet. The hospitality component includes 162 guest rooms accompanied by a curated collection of modern artwork throughout. Hotel amenities will include a rooftop lounge and a ground-floor restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating area.
The façade is primarily comprised of reflective glass with dark metal supports. At the ground floor, the lobby is enclosed in typical floor-to-ceiling windows, a large glass awning, and pin metal signage.
As previously reported by YIMBY, the new Hyatt Centric hotel occupies a two-lot assemblage originally purchased by ClearRock Properties and Juster Properties.
When fully complete, guests will have quick access to various subway lines including the B, D, F, M, and 7 trains at the 5th Avenue-Bryant Park station, along with the 4, 5, 6, and S trains at Grand Central station.
