The 175,000-square-foot, 13-story Hyatt Centric hotel topped out in Philadelphia, the brand's debut in the city.

The Harman Group provided structural engineering services for the project, in partnership with developer, Hyatt, and architect, DAS Architects.

For the property’s construction, the steel structure is optimized for limited depth by Girder-Slab D-beams.

The Hyatt Centric property will have 332 guestrooms and 40 suites, a meeting space, retail shops, restaurants, an outdoor terrace for guests and one level of underground parking with stackers.

The Harman Group contributed to a number of hospitality projects that expanded Philadelphia’s skyline, including the Cambria Hotel and Suites, and the Lowes Hotel.
