Thanks to a tip from a Curbed reader, word on the street is that a Hyatt Centric may no longer be in the works for 1602 Chancellor Street. Last week we wrote about all of the major hotel projects in the works for Philly, which included the Hyatt planned for a site that currently includes a parking garage and Little Pete's. But after a reader wrote that "Rumor is hyatt pulled out of hyatt centric project," we checked in with Hyatt to find out more. A representative told us that they could not comment on potential projects until they have signed definitive agreements,and "at this time we have not entered into any definitive agreements for a new project in Philadelphia."
So there you go. Previously, the plans for this site included a Hudson Hotel. But in October 2015, it was announced that a Hyatt Centric would be built instead. We'll update when we know more about the future of this project.
