New Hyatt Place coming to Pasadena, Calif.

A $70-million project is planned for the Paseo Colorado shopping center in Pasadena, Calif., that will include a six-story, 179-room Hyatt Place hotel, as well as a seven-story, mixed-use building, upgrades to storefronts, walkways, lighting and landscaping and several new retailers.

The project is expected to be completed with new tenant openings by mid-2017. Demolition of a 150,000-square-foot space previously occupied by a Macy’s department store is underway to make room for the hotel and mixed-use building.
