Atlanta-based developer Songy Highroads is the latest to enter Nashville’s booming hotel market with Hyatt House Nashville West End. The 15-story extended-stay hotel will be built in the city’s Midtown neighborhood—just one block away from Vanderbilt University, Saint Thomas Medical, and Centennial Medical Center. Construction will begin in June, and completion is slated for early 2019.
The new Hyatt House will have 201 rooms above structured parking. On the main level, the brand’s signature H Bar will have an outdoor area with a fire pit and seating. The hotel’s fifth floor will include a pool and a large fitness center. Songy Highroads is developing the property jointly with a Hyatt affiliate. The project architect is Wakefield Beasley & Associates.
“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 has developed Hyatt brand hotels throughout the U.S. Southeast. In the past three years, it has built 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.
