Aloft in Greenville, S.C., given go-ahead by design board

McKibbon Hotel Group, a hotel management group with more than 75 properties, has announced plans for an Aloft hotel in downtown Greenville, S.C., after the project was approved by the design review board. 4240 Architecture will design the hotel, which is scheduled to begin construction early next year with a mid-2015 opening in mind, the Greenville Business Magazine reports.

The façade of the hotel’s lower floors will be constructed of stone and brick, honoring the masonry traditions of downtown Greenville’s historic Main Street. The hotel’s tower will feature a woven pattern of three tones, connecting the hotel to Greenville’s textile heritage.

“The recent approval by the design review board is yet another milestone in bringing Aloft Hotel to downtown Greenville,” said Wes Townson, VP, acquisitions, McKibbon Hotel Group. “We are excited to have the city’s support and look forward to working with Hughes Development Corporation to bring this unique development to Greenville’s vibrant downtown.”

The hotel will sit atop a new 474-space public parking garage and will include retail shops and restaurants.
