SFO Grand Hyatt Hotel Takes Off
- Jun 24, 2017
San Francisco International Airport broke ground on a new Grand Hyatt, a 351-key hotel on airport grounds. Design work by architecture firm Hornberger + Worstell with ED2 International began in March 2016. The $237 million property is constructed by Webcor Builders and is slated for completion in July 2019.
Located at the entrance to SFO on a 4.7-acre site, the asset is close to terminal buildings and parking garages and has direct access to the AirTrain light rail system and U.S. Highway 101. Property amenities will include 15,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, a 2,700-square-foot fitness center, a 90-seat restaurant and a lounge. The hotel is designed to achieve a four-star designation and LEED Gold certification for environmentally sustainable design and operation.
Impacting the community
“We are excited to grow Hyatt’s footprint in the Bay area,” said Pete Sears, Hyatt Group president of the Americas, in prepared remarks. “With the team at SFO, we are one step closer to opening this luxury hotel and positively impacting the community by creating jobs and operating the hotel with the help of many local businesses as our suppliers, vendors and partners.”
Constructed and owned by SFO and managed under the Grand Hyatt brand, the project is expected to create 350 construction jobs and 200 hospitality jobs.
