Songy Highroads building new Hyatt House in Nashville

Atlanta-based developer Songy Highroads is developing a new Hyatt House hotel in Nashville. Construction will start in June for Hyatt House Nashville West End, which will be located at the intersection of Hayes Street and 21 St Avenue, a block away from Vanderbilt University, Saint Thomas Medical and Centennial Medical Center. The property is slated to be completed early in 2019.

The 15-story extended-stay hotel will contain 201 rooms above structured parking. The main level will include the brand’s H Bar, which has an outdoor area with a fire pit and seating areas. The hotel’s fifth floor will include a pool and a large fitness center.

“This is our first deal in Nashville, and we’re pleased to be able to enter a growing market with traditionally high barriers to entry,” Todd Nocerini, COO of Songy Highroads, said in a statement. “With a premier location and stability of our partners, we are confident this hotel will be a success.”

Songy Highroads is developing the new Hyatt House in a joint venture with an affiliate of Hyatt. The project architect is Wakefield Beasley & Associates.

Songy Highroads has become a trusted partner of the Hyatt brand for developing upscale, urban hotels throughout the Southeast. In the past three years, the company has built two Hyatt-flagged properties, a Hyatt Regency and Hyatt Place hotel, adjacent to Houston’s Galleria shopping center, and the developer converted a downtown Washington, D.C., office building into a Hyatt Place hotel. Also nearing completion is a Hyatt Regency hotel conversion in Fairfax, Va.
