Atlanta-based developer Songy Highroads, LLC has announced plans to develop a new Hyatt House hotel in Nashville. Construction will start in June for Hyatt House Nashville West End, which will be located at the intersection of Hayes Street and 21st Avenue a block away from Vanderbilt University, Saint Thomas Medical and Centennial Medical Center. Completion is slated for early 2019.
The 15-story extended stay hotel will contain 201 rooms above structured parking. The main level will include the brand’s signature H Bar, which features an outdoor area with a fire pit and seating areas. The hotel’s fifth floor will include a pool and a large fitness center.
“This is our first deal in Nashville, and we’re pleased to be able to enter a growing market with traditionally high barriers to entry,” said Todd Nocerini, COO of Songy Highroads. “With a premier location and stability of our partners, we are confident this hotel will be a success.”
Songy Highroads is developing the new Hyatt House in a joint venture with an affiliate of Hyatt. The project architect is Wakefield Beasley & Associates.
Songy Highroads has become a trusted partner of the Hyatt brand for developing upscale, urban hotels throughout the Southeast. In the past three years, it has built two Hyatt-flagged properties, a Hyatt Regency and Hyatt Place hotel adjacent to Houston’s Galleria shopping center, and converted a downtown Washington, D.C., office building into a Hyatt Place hotel. Also nearing completion is a Hyatt Regency hotel conversion in Fairfax, Virginia.
