Proposed transformative 2-million-square-foot development would include a new Grand Hyatt New York hotel; Grand Hyatt New York to remain open through July 31, 2022

NEW YORK (August 20, 2019) –  As redevelopment plans continue on schedule for a new Grand Hyatt New York, the luxury hotel is pleased to confirm that it will continue accepting reservations through at least July 31, 2022. 

The proposed redevelopment project, in collaboration with TF Cornerstone and RXR Realty, would replace the existing Grand Hyatt New York and create an iconic 2-million-square-foot mixed-use development, including a new luxury Grand Hyatt hotel, world-class office and retail space, new public open space and dramatic improvements to the public transportation infrastructure in the Grand Central Terminal transit complex. 

“We are excited about the potential opportunity to set a new standard for luxury in East Midtown with a new Grand Hyatt hotel,” said John Schafer, general manager, Grand Hyatt New York. “Until then, we remain fully committed to delivering the highest level of service and an outstanding experience for our guests, customers and the community – as we have done for more than 35 years. We look forward to continue welcoming guests and groups to the hotel through at least July 31, 2022.” 

The proposed development is subject to city and state public review processes, and work would only begin following receipt of all necessary approvals, completion of the design plans, and the arrangement of sufficient project financing to complete its construction. 

Hyatt is working closely with TF Cornerstone and RXR Realty on the planning and design for this iconic Grand Hyatt New York project. Further details regarding the proposed redevelopment will be shared as soon as they become available.
