Charleston Federal Building to Become Hotel

By

The Mendel Rivers Federal Building — a large vacant office building near Marion Square — is set to get new life as a luxury hotel. The downtown building, located at 334 Meeting St., will become the Hotel Dewberry, the first hotel under the Dewberry Capital brand.

The building will be renovated into a 155-room luxury hotel by McMillan Pazdan Smith in association with Reggie Gibson of Gibson Guess Architects and By Others Ltd. Dewberry Capital bought the property in 2008 from the General Services Administration for $15 million.

The hotel will feature a rooftop spa, pool and fitness center. It will be LEED-certified and is expected to open by fall 2013. The building’s marble and brick exterior is expected to remain largely unchanged. The building was commissioned by former President John F. Kennedy in the 1960s.
