Project Design Consultants provided survey and engineering services, site work, grading, utilities, city street modifications, and design reports for the 33-story, 790,000 square foot hotel tower as an expansion of the Hyatt Hotel. The new tower added 800 guest rooms, a 30,000-square-foot ballroom, a 30,000-square-foot exhibit hall, and a rooftop swimming pool to the already 875 room hotel.
The urban design approach focused on creating a "plaza", between the two hotel towers. The plaza serves as the public entry into each tower. The slender profile of the additional tower, at approximately 460 feet, contains views to the bay and the Pacific Ocean beyond.
