Hyatt Announces New Park Hyatt Hotel In New York City
Hyatt Hotels has announced plans for the new The Park Hyatt New York which will be the brand's flagship hotel when it opens in 2012. The newly-constructed hotel will be designed by world-renowned, Pritzker Prize-winning architect Christian de Portzamparc. The hotel will be located at 157 West 57th Street between Avenue of the Americas and Seventh Avenue, across from Carnegie Hall. The 210-room hotel will be part of a 90-story mixed-use tower that will also have 135 Thomas Juul-Hansen-designed luxury condominiums with Central Park views.
The property also will feature a bar and restaurant and 5,000 square feet of retail space as well as a meeting facility with a grand ballroom and distinctive event space, spa, fitness center, and an indoor swimming pool in a three-story aerie at the top of the hotel. The hotel will have interiors designed by the design firm Yabu Pushelberg. Twelve previously announced Park Hyatt hotels are under development, which, when completed, will increase the number of Park Hyatt properties worldwide to 38 over the next five years.
