Songy Highroads to Develop Hyatt House Hotel in Nashville

The new hotel marks the developer's entry into the market

NASHVILLE, TN. May 8, 2017 – Atlanta-based developer Songy Highroads, LLC has announced plans to develop a new Hyatt House hotel in Nashville. Construction will start in June for Hyatt House Nashville West End, which will be located at the intersection of Hayes Street and 21st Avenue a block away from Vanderbilt University, Saint Thomas Medical and Centennial Medical Center. Completion is slated for early 2019.

The 15-story extended stay hotel will contain 201 rooms above structured parking. The main level will include the brand’s signature H Bar, which features an outdoor area with a fire pit and seating areas. The hotel’s fifth floor will include a pool and a large fitness center.

“This is our first deal in Nashville, and we’re pleased to be able to enter a growing market with traditionally high barriers to entry,” said Todd Nocerini, COO of Songy Highroads. “With a premier location and stability of our partners, we are confident this hotel will be a success.”

Songy Highroads is developing the new Hyatt House in a joint venture with an affiliate of Hyatt. The project architect is Wakefield Beasley & Associates.

Songy Highroads has become a trusted partner of the Hyatt brand for developing upscale, urban hotels throughout the Southeast. In the past three years, it has built two Hyatt-flagged properties, a Hyatt Regency and Hyatt Place hotel, adjacent to Houston’s Galleria shopping center, and the developer converted a downtown Washington, D.C., office building into a Hyatt Place hotel. Also nearing completion is a Hyatt Regency hotel conversion in Fairfax, Virginia.

Human Resources: Value Creation

Businesses must evolve to stay competitive and this is also true of employment positions within those organizations. In the hotel industry, for example, the role that HR professionals perform continues to broaden and expand. Today, they are generally responsible for five key areas - government compliance; payroll and benefits; employee acquisition and retention; training and development; and organizational structure and culture. In this enlarged capacity, HR professionals are no longer seen as part of an administrative cost center, but rather as a member of the leadership team that creates strategic value within their organization. HR professionals help to define company policies and plans; enact and enforce systems of accountability; and utilize definable metrics to measure and justify outcomes. Of course, there are always new issues for HR professionals to address. Though seemingly safe for the moment, will the Affordable Care Act ultimately be repealed and replaced and, if so, what will the ramifications be? There are issues pertaining to Millennials in the workforce and women in leadership roles, as well as determining the appropriate use of social media within the organization. There are new onboarding processes and e-learning training platforms to evaluate, in addition to keeping abreast of political issues like the minimum wage hike movement, or the re-evaluation of overtime rules. Finally, there are genuine immigration and deportation issues that affect HR professionals, especially if they are located in Dreamer Cities, or employ a workforce that could be adversely impacted by federal government policies. The March Hotel Business Review will take a look at some of the issues, strategies and techniques that HR professionals are employing to create and sustain value in their organization.
