New Hyatt Place Hotel at Angle Lake

Just as renovation activity begins to ramp up with mounds of earth being pushed about at the public park, Seattle-based Ariel Development announced their plans Tuesday to build a new $25 million Hyatt Place hotel near the shores of Angle Lake.

The hotel will be located at 19518 International Boulevard in SeaTac, between the Hughes Property and Angle Lake Park, and will feature 150 rooms, a pool, fitness room and 2,500 to 3,500 square feet of meeting space. When open in early 2016 the hotel will recruit 60 to 80 employees, according to Ariel Development.

“The City of SeaTac is an epicenter for our region, and is an ideal site for this new property,” Shimon Mizrahi of Ariel Development said in a statement. “Its central location between Seattle and Tacoma provides an easy access point to freeways and the airport, as well as the city itself. We see a lot of potential on the scenic Angle Lake waterfront.”

Seattle-based Linardic Design Group Architects will work on the project.

UPDATE: A reader submitted comment noted mention of 'scenic Angle Lake waterfront' in the story above and asked if the hotel will actually be situated on the shore.

A closer inspection of the site plans that were included in the January 22nd Council Study Session Agenda when compared against a Google map satellite view reveals the hotel to be located immediately south of Angle Lake Park currently where an open parking log and one building exists today. It appears that the eastern edge of the new hotel building will stop far short of the waters edge with the public park boat ramp and access road between it and the shoreline.

Will this be on the lake itself? They mention Angle Lake waterfront. More boat traffic on the lake? For sure, morre exercisers walking and running around the lake from the hotel.

This future hotel will occupy the parcel directly behind (West of) the Boat Launch. The guests will have access to the water front through the park. There will be a 'right of way' path leading from the existing public park to the 'Hughes Property' waterfront parcel to the south.
