Hotel Developer Sam Chang filed plans for a 225-key Hyatt Place hotel at 208-210 East 52nd Street near Third Avenue with the city Department of Buildings yesterday.
It will be the first Hyatt Place hotel in Manhattan, a Hyatt spokesperson said.

The 29-story Gene Kaufman-designed hotel will be select service, and have a restaurant, said Chang, CEO of McSam Hotel Group.
He expects the hotel to open in 2011, but the date depends on the city’s approval process. He is building the hotel to own, not to sell on completion, he said. He is developing a Hyatt Place in Brooklyn, as well.
Chang has been a prolific hotel developer, particularly active in Manhattan’s Times Square area.
