Kolter Hospitality, a division of The Kolter Group, has announced plans for a new Hyatt Centric on Olas Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale. Occupying the first 15 levels of a 46-storey downtown newbuild – the brand’s first mixed-use building agreement – the 238-key property incorporates a lobby-level restaurant and bar, 8,500ft² of retail space, and 121 condominium residences beginning on the 16th floor.
“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,” says Scott Webb, President of Kolter Hospitality. “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.”
Destined to become the tallest building in Fort Lauderdale at 499ft, 100 Las Olas and Hyatt Centric Fort Lauderdale are expected to open in 2020, with the hotel continuing the Hyatt Centric’s commitment to thoughtfully designed hotels that encourage exploration and discovery.
“Known as the heart and soul of downtown Fort Lauderdale, Las Olas will be the perfect location for a Hyatt Centric hotel,” adds 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.
