This new 264-key select–service hotel is situated on a 12,344 sq. ft. site at the corner of 18th and Champa in downtown Denver. The 15-story building over a concrete podium is constructed utilizing 11 levels of Infinity superstructure, with upper concrete slabs at L15 and roof. There is one underground utility level. The hotel, including Level B-1, is 154,298 sq. ft. The building exterior includes a curtain wall at L1 and L2 to provide glass views, as well as intricate, sloped metal panel and EIFS designs to enhance the building’s architectural design.
The MW team is working in a design-assist partnership with Infinity Systems to furnish load-bearing steel stud framing and Epicore Metal Decking structural systems at levels four through fourteen. The logistics plan requires great precision, because one side of the project site is just 4″ away from a historic building, and the project site also sits along two busy streets and one alley. The adjacent building required MW to engage structural consultants to monitor vibrations caused by foundation drilling. The project also encountered contaminated soils which the team mitigated through consultation and proper disposal.
Whether traveling for business or pleasure, Hyatt Centric guests are set for a great stay. The hotel includes the Apple Blossom restaurant featuring farm-to-table cuisine, a hip lobby bar, a top-floor bar with an outdoor terrace and views of Denver and the Front Range, 1,500 sq. ft. of meeting rooms, and a fitness center. New sidewalks, lighting and landscaping complete the picture at the ground floor. The Hyatt Centric is uniquely designed to capture the spirit of Denver and guests can easily access the local scene.
Completed October 2021.
