Big changes are on the way to Pasadena’s newly renamed Paseo Colorado mall (it’s now simply The Paseo), and a Hyatt Place hotel will soon join the new restaurants and retailers opening at the Colorado Boulevard shopping center.
A groundbreaking ceremony will be held Thursday for the new hotel, though it’s already under construction and expected to open by the end of 2018.
The six-story hotel will rise from the southeast corner of the mall, where a former Macy’s used to stand. It will include 186 rooms and guest amenities that include a pool, a meeting space, and a fire pit.
The project was originally proposed in 2014 and was expected to be complete by this year. But as the Pasadena Star News reports, developer Ensemble Real Estate Solutions ran into financing delays and construction had to be pushed back.
Right next to the hotel, a separate developer is planning a seven-story structure with condos and retail space.
Meanwhile, several new businesses will soon be moving into the busy shopping center, including an H&M store, a branch of the Great Maple restaurant chain, and Dos Coyotes Border Cafe. Each business is expected to open before the holiday season.
