An Atlanta development firm that controls more than 7 acres next to the Galleria is adding a second hotel to the site, which by the end of next year will have close to 500 new hotel rooms - all under the Hyatt brand.
"Demand for hotels in the Galleria is at its current peak, and it's continuing to rise," said developer David Songy, CEO of Songy HighRoads, which owns the Galleria Place development along Sage Road between Westheimer and West Alabama with The Carlyle Group.
The new hotel, a Hyatt Place, will join a 325-room Hyatt Regency that has already broken ground in Galleria Place.
Both projects are expected to open in the fourth quarter of 2015, according to Atlanta-based Songy.
The hotel projects are part of a tremendous construction boom underway in the Uptown area.
