Songy Highroads LLC recently announced its plans to develop Hyatt House West End Hotel in Nashville, Tenn. Construction will start in June and completion is slated for the beginning of 2019. Songy Highroads is developing the 15-story hotel in a joint venture with an affiliate of Hyatt. Wakefield Beasley & Associates is the architect of the project.

Located at the intersection of Hayes Street and 21st Avenue, a block away from Saint Thomas Medical and the Centennial Medical Center, the hotel will feature 201 keys above a parking structure. The main level will include the brand’s signature H Bar with a fire pit and outdoor seating areas. A pool and a fitness center will be available for guests at the fifth floor.

“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 Songy Highroads COO Todd Nocerini in prepared remarks.

During the past three years, Songy Highroads built two Hyatt-flagged properties, a Hyatt Regency and the Hyatt Place hotel adjacent to Houston’s Galleria shopping center. The developer also converted a downtown Washington, D.C., office building into a Hyatt Place hotel. A Hyatt Regency hotel conversion in Fairfax, Va., is also nearing completion.
