The Hyatt Centric project is located in the heart of Portland’s hip West End District immediately north of the United Way Building. Mortenson’s long-term support of United Way opened the door to acquiring United Way’s surplus property for the development, design and construction this new lifestyle brand hotel. The 15-story hotel will include 220 guestrooms, meeting space, and a new destination restaurant/bar operated by a local Portland chef. The lobby entryway will serve as a launch pad for the hotel guests and the community, creating a lively hub that is reflective of Portland with multi-media art displays.
Mortenson is leading the development of the project to include: land acquisition, entitlements, design and construction. The project uses a design-build agreement for the design and construction services.
