Douglas Development filed plans to convert the 12-story former Virginia Department of Environmental Quality building at 629 E. Main St. into a 210-room, dual-branded Hyatt hotel in Richmond Virginia. Plans call for 210 hotel rooms, 130 of which would be for a Hyatt Place. The other 80 would be Hyatt House. Douglas also has filed for a demolition permit for the project that calls for minimal modifications to the 98-year-old building’s facade. Balzer & Associates is the project’s engineer. Fillat+ Architecture is the architect and RD Jones + Associates Inc. is the interior designer.  For more information on this and other upcoming hotel construction and renovation projects in the planning, design, pre-construction and construction phase including who is involved and their contact information and Preferred Vendor Directory please visit: and subscribe today.
