Watch: Demolition begins on Jade Apartments for Hyatt Centric Hotel in downtown Sacramento

Demolition of the Jade Apartments began Thursday as part of the Hyatt Centric Hotel development on the corner of 7th and L Streets.

The project, which began in October, will create a new 172-room hotel from the shell of the adjacent Marshall Hotel.

The Hyatt is expected to open in 2020.

The Jade Apartments previously hosted the “Art Hotel” exhibit.
