CHICAGO—Hyatt Hotels Corporation has formed a joint venture between a Hyatt affiliate and FSA Group S.A. (FSA) to develop and own nine Hyatt Place-branded hotels in Brazil.
The investment from Hyatt and FSA is anticipated to total approximately $270 million.
The hotels will be situated in key urban areas with established commercial and industrial infrastructure to meet the growing demand in Brazil for quality accommodation.
The first of these new properties is expected to open in 2016. They will feature between 150 and 200 rooms.
FSA will manage and coordinate the development of the properties. Design and construction teams have been deployed in Brazil to handle project management aspects. Hyatt will manage the hotels.
