With a year of construction under its belt, Irvine-based developer Mayer Corp. continues to make progress at the new Hyatt House hotel as the USC Health Sciences Campus in Boyle Heights.

The five-story development, located at the intersection of San Pablo and Alcazar Streets, will feature 200 guest rooms, 14,000 square feet of ground-floor shops and restaurants, and an 18,000-square-foot conference facility upon completion.


The podium-type structure is designed by Santa Monica-based AHT Architects.  Planned ancillary features include a pool deck and a 310-car parking structure.

Completion of the approximately $49-million mixed-use structure is anticipated in August 2020, approximately a half-year behind its originally announced schedule.

The project site neighors a new graduate student housing complex now being built by American Campus Communities, as well as Currie Hall, a previously-completed development by the same firm.

Other large projects planned at the Los Angeles County + USC Medical Center complex include a new Restorative Carge Village, and potentially the adaptive reuse of the historic General Hospital Building.
