The University of Virginia (UVA) and its partners have announced a new Hotel and Conference Center in Charlottesville as their new investment project. This magnum project would be spread over 223,000-square-foot and is planned to be debuted in the hospitality industry by the spring of the year 2025. The name of this hospitality center is yet to be disclosed, probably in the future. Pyramid Global Hospitality is the hand on which this project would be managed.
In October when this groundbreaking event was being celebrated its guest list propped with people like Jim Ryan, president of UVA; Tim Rose, CEO of the UVA Foundation; Stephen Brockman, partner at Deborah Berke Partners and David Keith, CEO of Hanbury Architects, which are leading architecture and design for the property; Jennifer “J.J.” Wagner Davis, executive vice president and COO of UVA; Colette Sheehy, UVA’s senior vice president for operations and state government relations; and from Pyramid Global Hospitality, Senior Vice President Ellen Sinclair and Vice President, Sales & Marketing Hal Powell.
Pyramid Global Hospitality’s Sinclair remarked, “We are pleased to partner with the University to bring Charlottesville and the academic community an incredible new gathering point along the Emmet-Ivy corridor. The intentional, sustainable design of this new hotel and conference space will be excellent, no doubt advancing the University’s mission to be great and good in all they do. Pyramid Global Hospitality will bring the same dedication to excellence to the guest experience come 2025.”
UVA’s President Jim Ryan added, “This will be a crossroads for the University – and the University’s front door,” he said. “The hotel and conference center will play an important role as a place where people can gather and stay – prospective students and their parents; data scientists, and faculty from the Law School can meet there with members of the Medical School faculty. This will be a bridge that makes the community stronger, brings worlds together in ways that are predictable and unpredictable.”
