Construction of the Hyatt Place hotel near Miami International Airport is underway.

MIA LeJeune, a joint venture between Miami-based Mayan Properties, Concord Hospitality and Travelers Hotel Group, started building the 135-room hotel at 3549 LeJeune Road, South Florida Citybizlist reported. Hyatt Place Miami Airport, the first Hyatt Place-branded hotel in Miami, is scheduled to open during the fourth quarter of 2014.

The project is expected to cost $21 million. Mayan Properties affiliate Aztec Group secured a $15 million construction loan and raised equity for the development. Raleigh, N.C.-based Concord plans to manage the hotel when it opens.
