Emeryville: Hyatt Place Hotel Is Now Under Construction

Late last week the San Francisco Business Journal reported that ground has been broken on the new Hyatt Place hotel in Emeryville. As you can see in the picture above, a construction crew is already hard at work. The 6-story hotel is scheduled to open in the third quarter of 2016 and should add some much needed hotel supply to the area. Emeryville has long been the East Bay hub for hotels and guests will certainly be able to enjoy many shopping and dining options within a short walk from this hotel. Even though that large vacant lot immediately south of the Powell Street overpass remains, I'm happy to see that this project will at least chip away at this giant deadzone. Hopefully one day soon we'll see something rise on this last remaining empty lot as well.

The hotel will rise immediately north of the Bay Street Mall.
