The first leg of the One Fulton Square project — a 168-room Hyatt Place hotel — is now welcoming guests, with the other remaining elements, retail and medical space and luxury condos, set to open later this year.

The $125 million mixed-use undertaking includes 330,000 square feet in downtown Flushing and will have three entrances when complete: on Prince Street and 39th and Roosevelt avenues.

The Hyatt Place Flushing/LaGuardia Airport is the first Hyatt hotel in Queens. Owner Jennifer Chiu said she is confident the facility “will provide a perfect mix of style, service and amenities that will exceed any guest’s expectations.”

The main entrance is on 39th Avenue and the hotel features free Wi-Fi everywhere, free breakfast for guests, two fully-equipped gyms open 24 hours a day, a yoga studio and a rooftop swimming pool.

One Fulton Square, when completed, will feature two main towers, one for the nine-story hotel and the other for a 12-story building that will have 43 furnished condos, shops, offices and underground parking for 299 cars.

Between the two buildings will be a courtyard plaza to be used for area events and gatherings including concerts and cultural festivals.

F & T Group, a Flushing-based developer, broke ground on One Fulton Square in 2011. It is being built on the site of a former parking lot that was owned by the developer.

F & T is now focusing on its newest project: Flushing Commons, the $850 million mixed-use development to replace Municipal Parking Lot 1.

It will include condos, retail and commercial space, a YMCA, a public green and underground parking for 1,600 cars.
