WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Jan. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Kolter Hospitality, a division of The Kolter Group, proudly announced today plans for a new Hyatt Centric hotel at 100 E. Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale. This hotel will occupy the first fifteen levels of the 46-level brand new building in the heart of the vibrant downtown, the first mixed-use building agreement for the Hyatt Centric brand. Destined to become the tallest building in Fort Lauderdale at 499 feet, the 100 Las Olas building will be home to a full-service Hyatt Centric hotel with 238 guest rooms, a lobby-level restaurant and bar with indoor and outdoor seating, 121 luxury condominium residences beginning on the 16th level, plus an additional 8,500 square feet of select retail and dining space with outdoor seating on the first level.
The Hyatt Centric brand features full-service lifestyle hotels located in prime, city-center destinations. Created for millennial-minded travelers who want to be at the center of the action, Hyatt Centric hotels are thoughtfully designed to enable exploration and discovery. The hotel's lobby lounge will be designed as a launch pad providing guests with information about the most sought-after food, nightlife and activities the destination has to offer, sourced from a community of "in the know" local explorers.
"The Hyatt Centric brand is a perfect fit for 100 Las Olas, particularly for those interested in exploring the multitude of activities and venues in downtown Fort Lauderdale. The hotel design, location, services and amenities will cater to the urban traveler. The condominium residents will also enjoy the benefit and perks of having this incredible hotel that will offer a vibrant atmosphere with dining and creative event and meeting spaces just below them," said Scott Webb, President of Kolter Hospitality.
With construction planned to start mid-2017, Hyatt Centric Fort Lauderdale is expected to open in 2020.
"Known as the heart and soul of downtown Fort Lauderdale, Las Olas will be the perfect location for a Hyatt Centric hotel," said Jim Chu, global head select service & franchise strategy, Hyatt. "Catering to the urban explorer, the Hyatt Centric brand was the most appropriate selection for this property. We are excited to be partnering once again with Kolter Hospitality in the Fort Lauderdale market."
Hyatt Centric Fort Lauderdale will feature:
- 238 streamlined, modern guest rooms that focus on delivering everything guests want, including environmentally conscious bath products, Bluetooth-enabled electronics and Drybar salon-grade blowdryers.
- A bar and restaurant positioned to become a local hot spot where great conversations, locally inspired food and signature cocktails can be enjoyed.
- 6,000 sq. ft. of meeting and banquet space.
- Eighth floor elevated pool with city views.
- 24-hour valet, garaged parking on-site.
Bob Vail, President of Kolter Urban, the high rise condominium division said, "We envision our residents enjoying this Hyatt Centric hotel as an extension of their condominium residences and as a welcome addition to the downtown Fort Lauderdale lifestyle they so enjoy. It literally brings downtown downstairs. Hyatt Centric Fort Lauderdale will be a perfect option for visiting out-of-town family and friends. Residents can meet their visitors downstairs at the restaurant, and when the evening is finished, everyone can take the elevator home. The hotel event space will be ideal for a special family celebration, professional business meetings and corporate events. It just doesn't get any better than this."
In 2016, Kolter Hospitality was presented with the Strategic Partnership Award by Hyatt in recognition of its commendable culture, performance and operating philosophies, along with the company's strong, multi-brand relationship with Hyatt.
