Hyatt Place Construction Update

Demolition for the building on the Hyatt Place construction site in Eagle Village began Monday, Aug. 20. It will take about one week to remove interior fixtures and physically separate the existing building structure, another two weeks of major demolition and a week of cleanup before moving ahead with groundbreaking and construction on the hotel.

Construction fencing has been placed around the vacant buildings and pedestrian traffic has been re-directed in front of the construction site with a defined walkway.

The hotel, a project of the UMW Foundation, is set to open in fall 2013.
