Legat Architects

“The team was savvy enough to modify our prototype design to meet the unique demands of Hyde Park, while still respecting the Hyatt brand and our focus on a seamless guest experience. I was particularly impressed with the use of a materials palette that is new to us, but consistent with our image.”

Spirit of Cooperation

The Harper Court team included a partnership of several private developers, along with their professional and design consultants. Intense collaboration and community participation enabled the project to regenerate an established urban center.

“I had a conversation with someone at the hotel bar. I asked him what brought him to the hotel. He said he was local, and had just stopped in to watch his favorite TV show. That’s what this project is all about . . . creating a community space where locals feel welcome.”

A LEED Gold First

Hyatt Place Chicago-South/University Medical Center became the first Hyatt Place hotel to achieve LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
