Concord Hospitality Begins Construction On Hyatt Place Jacksonville

JACKSONVILLE, FLA.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Concord Hospitality announced today that construction has started on Hyatt Place Jacksonville. Located across the street from St. Johns Town Center, the 160-room hotel is scheduled to open in late 2018.

The property will be located at The Strand at St. Johns Town Center, 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 center; 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 and CEO, 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.
