DMU PIONEERS IN THE OVERALL URBAN RENEWAL OF HISTORIC GREENVILLE
DMU Renovates Hyatt Regency in NOMA Square with an Artfully Contemporary and Urbane Tone Design Duncan Mille Ullmann completed a significant renovation of the Hyatt Regency, Greenville, South Carolina. This prominent project will breathe new life and anchor the revitalization of the NOMA Square entertainment district. Set amongst the energy of downtown, the project was comprised of 328 guest rooms and suites, world-class meeting and congregation space for events and activities and a transformation of the lobby, including entry, lounge, reception and bar. “The direction we took for the Hyatt Regency Greenville renovation was motivated by our desire to provide a unique setting that showcases our signature modern hospitality while incorporating a bit of southern charm,” said D.J. Rama, President of JHM Hotels, Owner of Hyatt Regency Greenville. A focal point of the renovation is the hotel’s reinvented atrium lobby, now fitted with new wood and stainless-steel trimmed architectural coverings, accented by 14-foot high, light towers. Significant spatial re-planning repositioned what was once an uninviting, cavernous lobby lounge/bar into what is now, a central, thriving, lobby lounge - The Orb lounge. Suspended above this space is now a stunning custom designed 40-foot artisan chandelier. Activity and palpable energy radiate from this central zone. The renovated ballroom can accommodate large and varied functions, while the guest areas, starting with new lifts and lift lobbies, greet visitors to the guest room areas. A significant renovation of the guest bathrooms has been completed and the bedroom portion of the rooms is underway.
