Sean G. Hyatt
Hyatt has 18 years of experience in civil engineering, land-use planning and real estate development in California, Washington and Oregon, and for the past seven years has developed multifamily and senior housing as well as condominium communities.
Hyatt has extensive experience with entitlement work for urban infill projects, handling complex development issues such as plan amendments, zoning changes and variances required for high-density development of under-utilized sites. He has worked closely with municipalities and public agencies to develop pioneering projects that have been catalysts for the creation of new, dense urban neighborhoods.
Hyatt gets personal
1. If you had $5 million of pocket change, where would you invest it? |
Short-term CDs, then cautiously in common stock and land contracts.
2. Where is your favorite place to travel?
Italy, New Zealand and the San Juan Islands (in no particular order).
3. Who’s your favorite musician?
Peter Murphy. Unless The Cult qualifies as a musician.
4. Worst mistake in real estate?
Selling a house in Montlake in 2004 — seemingly days before the market took off.
5. What Northwest building do you miss most?
My wife and I were married at First Methodist downtown. I think it was very important that they saved the old church, but I first saw her in her wedding dress in the “new” chapel right before the ceremony, and have very poignant memories of that building as a result.
Immediately prior to joining TCR, Hyatt was vice president of AMCAL Multi-Housing, where he developed communities throughout California, and was previously with The Related Companies.
Hyatt holds a master’s degree in business from The Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California, and is a graduate of the University of Washington. He is a member of numerous industry associations.
