A proposed Hyatt Hotel is slated to be the first hotel to open in downtown Boca Raton. The Hyatt Place Hotel Boca Raton has been approved to be built at 120 E. Palmetto Park Road.

The hotel plans break the city’s 100-foot height restriction and has been designed to be as tall as 140 feet to accommodate the 12 story design and have been approved by the city. “This project shows a remarkable architectural sensitivity to the site and its context,“ said Eric Osth, representative from the city’s design firm, Urban Design Associates.

The proposal showed the hotel hosting an 8,000-square-foot restaurant and 200 rooms. A parking garage will also be built onsite and the restaurant will have valet-parking according to the proposal.

The project has the city’s planning board’s unanimous support and was approved by the city’s Community Appearance Board. Alana Cohen, a member of the Downtown Boca Raton Advisory Committee called the hotel “a missing piece,” as most cities have a hotel located downtown.
