Kessler Collection holds Grand Bohemian Hotel topping out ceremony


The Kessler Collection, a portfolio of nine passionately created and artistically inspired boutique hotels and restaurants, held a topping out ceremony to celebrate a major construction milestone in the highly-anticipated Grand Bohemian Hotel Charlotte development.

Local dignitaries, development partners and executives from The Kessler Collection recognized the efforts and commitment of each individual who played a role in the construction process.

“On behalf of The Kessler Collection, I’d like to personally thank JE Dunn Construction’s team of experts for their dedication to this development,” said Richard C. Kessler, chairman and CEO of The Kessler Collection. “We are excited to watch this vision come to life, and we are now one step closer to bringing our bohemian flair to the heart of uptown Charlotte.”

During the ceremonial event, the final steel beam was signed by The Kessler Collection executives and key partners, and proudly lifted by a crane into the skyline, positioning it atop the structure, signifying the completion of construction. Following the ceremony a reception took place in the fourth floor ballroom space, showcasing never-before-seen renderings and custom interior design details.

Set to debut in early 2020, the 254-room hotel will take center stage as the area’s newest luxury icon, featuring 32 suites, a signature Poseidon Spa, indoor and outdoor event spaces, an open kitchen restaurant concept and lounge with charming sidewalk and park seating, as well as a sophisticated rooftop bar providing intimate spaces and unparalleled views of Charlotte, appealing to guests and locals alike. The boutique hotel will incorporate diverse offerings including a vibrant art collection curated by Richard C. Kessler, paying tribute to the passionate and vibrant culture of Argentina. Architecturally inspired by the historic Vienna Secession movement and nestled in the heart of a thriving district, Grand Bohemian Hotel Charlotte will serve as an iconic hub for generations to come.

Conveniently located in the heart of uptown, Grand Bohemian Hotel Charlotte allows guests to experience the cultural vibrancy of the ‘Queen City’ right at their doorstep. Museums, theatrical performances, local restaurants and nationally recognized sporting events are only minutes away, making Charlotte a year-round playground for leisure and business travelers alike.

Grand Bohemian Hotel Charlotte will uphold The Kessler Collection’s tradition of providing superior guest services, perpetrating a sense of Bohemian creativity and inviting cultures to connect with unique artistic offerings.
