Hyatt Regency Salt Lake City marks major construction milestone
The Portman Architects-designed Hyatt Regency Salt Lake City has celebrated its topping out and remains firmly on track to open its doors in autumn 2022.
Utah’s state capital is looking forward to the completion of a scheme that promises to significantly strengthen the city’s hospitality offering.
Enhancing the neighbourhood
The 25-storey Hyatt Regency Salt Lake City is celebrating its topping out, with the development team reporting that the Portman Architects-designed project’s still on budget, and on track to launch in autumn 2022.
When finished, it’ll host guests across 700 rooms, supported by 60,000 sq ft of event space, two restaurants, two lounges and a grab-and-go market. The lobby will also provide an inviting space for travellers to relax in, anchored by a double-sided stone-clad fireplace.
Ambrish Baisiwala, CEO of Portman Holdings, said: “Today marks a significant milestone for Hyatt Regency Salt Lake City, a project Portman Holdings is proud to direct from development through construction. The property is a continuation of our 54-year relationship with Hyatt.”
Robert Halverson, CEO for Portman Architects, added: “The design for the Hyatt Regency Salt Lake City offers an experience of modern, clean and streamlined concepts that takes full advantage of its unique site and works in harmony with the neighbourhood.”
