Pasadena's got a case of hotel madness: there are at least seven hotels opening in the city in the next few years. Among them is a hotel slated for the empty husk of a Macy's at Pasadena's Paseo Colorado outdoor shopping center and, although demolition has not even begun, developers have already inked a lease with Hyatt. The 179-room hotel will become a Hyatt Place, the company's brand geared toward "families and and business travelers near airports and in suburban areas," reports the LA Business Journal (the hotel will be near the Pas Convention Center).
Also part of the site's post-Macy's plans are a six-story mixed-user with 71 condos and 25,000 square feet of street-level retail. The project will make use of the underground parking already available on-site. The developer still needs to get approvals, but once those are received, demolition should be done within 12 months.
