    Hyatt Hotels Corporation has recently announced that a Hyatt affiliate has entered into a franchise agreement with Songy HighRoads, a commercial real estate development firm based in Atlanta, Ga., to develop Hyatt Regency Houston Galleria. The hotel will be managed by Aimbridge Hospitality and is scheduled to open in fall 2015.

It is part of the 7.6-acre, mixed use development, Galleria Plaza, which includes a Whole Foods Market, multiple high-end retail and specialty stores, luxury apartments, and multiple recently completed office towers. The 325-room, 14-story hotel will feature more than 12,000 square feet of meeting and conference space as well as a large fitness center overlooking the pool deck.

    “We began construction of Hyatt Regency Houston Galleria in December 2013, and are looking forward to a fall 2015 opening,” stated Todd Nocerini, Chief Operating Officer, Songy HighRoads. “The Galleria area is one of Houston’s most important commercial sub-markets, and we are delighted to be bringing the Hyatt Regency brand, in tandem with Aimbridge Hospitality as our hotel manager, to business and leisure travelers visiting the area,”
