US: Colorado developer Pedersen Development Co. plans to build a 13-storey Hyatt House at Ninth Street and Broadway in Kansas City.

The 153-room extended stay hotel at 900 Broadway could open by June 2020 if city officials give it the green light.

Developer Scott Pedersen said he would seek property tax abatement for the project, which he said would cost more than $36 million: "Most of the new hotels downtown have applied for and received certain incentives to help the revitalisation of downtown, and we're doing the same."

The plans include a rooftop deck with a restaurant and bar.

Pedersen said the hotel would include kitchens in some rooms and would be attractive to downtown convention attendees. He and a partner also already own the Google Fiber Building next door to the planned Hyatt House site. They also purchased 415 Delaware in the River Market and have a building in Liberty.

"We've become fairly familiar with Kansas City over the years and really like what Kansas City leaders are doing to revitalise downtown and think there's lots of great potential," Pedersen said.
