Is This New Hyatt Regency About To Go Up Next to the Galleria?

Northeast View of Planned Hyatt Regency Hotel for Songy Highroads

The Mathis Group will be starting construction later this month on this 14-story Hyatt Regency hotel designed by Gensler for Atlanta developers Songy Highroads, according to a post on the construction company’s Facebook page. The post and mid-August rendering don’t indicate the project’s location, but commenters on HAIF are noting that the alignment of the building jibes with possible additions to the 425,000-sq.-ft. Galleria Plaza office complex immediately west of the Galleria — which Songy purchased last spring. Back then, Songy’s CEO hinted the company might try to fit more buildings into the complex fronting Westheimer, Alabama, and Sage, which includes the Telecheck Plaza and 5333 Westheimer office buildings, a shopping center called Sage Plaza (not to be confused with another shopping center and office building of the same name nearby), Michaelyndon, and a standalone bank building: “The seven-acre site allows us to develop another project while sharing existing parking.”

The rendering is labeled as a northeast view of the property. HAIF commenters note that would mean the 2-story structure at the front of the image is a redone version of the Sage Plaza structure (pictured above from the opposite angle), and that the hotel is planned for the current parking lot at the northwest corner of Sage and West Alabama.

  • The Galleria is overstaurated….ironically I would think that there would be more goldiggeresque clubs uptown…seeing how thats were the rich like to blow money in screwston….yeah but put that Hyatt regency in Midtown or Eado or even the warehouse District…maybe upper kirby or for currently rehipstering Washington Ave

  • I meant oversaturated…for you grammar nazis…

  • it seems to me that Hyatt Corp. would know best where to put their hotel.

  • Normally I would say this needs first floor retail. However, this puppy needs a helicopter pad so you can actually get to and from it. The galleria traffic is nuts and about to get into the silly season with out of town shoppers coming in.

  • As rendered, the Hyatt Regency @ the Galleria would be a welcome addition to the area. The Aloft Hotel immediately west of this site is quite nice. Although the St.Regis , the Omni and the Houstonian Hotel & Trellis Spa are VERY nice properties!!!

  • There goes my parking spot.

  • Kinda bland for Hyatt, I miss the Portman designed Hyatts. It’s height is a bit of a disappointment as well.
