300 S. Tryon SEGD Tour

We were fortunate to have private tours of both the new 300 S. Tryon tower and the new Kimpton Tryon Park Hotel on March 16th!  These two properties are neighbors on the same block and are the most talked about projects in Charlotte.  The tours were led by the project architects (LS3P and Cooper Carry), the Kimpton graphic designer (Scholberg Design) and the signage and graphics provider for both projects (Trademark Visual).

We had 16 attendees and advertised the event using MailChimp, Eventbrite, LinkedIn and our chapter page.  Attendees were a mix of graphic designers, architects and fabricators.

Trademark Visual sponsored the event and provided drinks for the group after the tour at the Kimpton's new rooftop bar, Merchant + Trade.

The tour guides / speakers were contacted by Trademark Visual and agreed to join us from Atlanta and Charlotte.  The GM of the Kimpton helped out with special rates for the event and our chapter took care of the Atlanta architect and designer's hotel rooms for the night to make the trip a little easier on them.  We really appreciate everyone's participation / willingness to help make this event a success!

We were able to see everything from the parking deck graphics to the main lobby, restaurants, office floors and hotel conference areas and hear directly from their designers what influenced them, how they dealt with any setbacks and what they thought of the finished product!

We were lucky to have perfect Carolina spring weather so finishing up on the rooftop was the cherry on top of a fantastic event!



Please join your fellow CLT SEGD’ers for a tour of the Charlotte skyline’s newest additions – 300 S. Tryon and the Kimpton Tryon Park Hotel! 

We’ll be starting at 300 S. Tryon, a brand new 27 story office tower and will be hearing all about the design process, construction details and challenges from the building’s architect – LS3P.  We’ll also have the building’s developer (Spectrum Companies) and signage and graphics consultant (Trademark Visual) to walk us through their ends of the build.

We’ll then move next door to the Kimpton Tryon Park Hotel – one of Charlotte’s hottest uptown locations!  We’ll tour the 217 room luxury hotel and hear the story behind its inception / construction from the Kimpton GM, the architect (Cooper Carry ATL), the signage design consultant (Scholberg Design) and the fabricator (Trademark Visual).   We’ll end our tour on the roof at Merchant + Trade for some cocktails and apps!  

Space is limited so please RSVP quickly to reserve your spot!    

We look forward to seeing everyone!
