Scheduled to commence in mid-2024, the project will see THG collaborating with Ring on Hook, a company specialising in hospitality renovations and venue activations.  

They will be joined by other placemaking consultants. 

Kara Childress, a design company, has been appointed as the lead interior designer for the upgrade. 

Meanwhile, Westmont Hospitality Group has been selected to manage the hotel operations post-renovation.  

The planned enhancements include a transformation of the ground floor into a gathering place, featuring a destination restaurant.  

In addition, the hotel will see an expansion and improvement of event spaces, new workout facilities, and curated programming. 

Transwestern chairman Robert Duncan said: “Our good friend, Giorgio Borlenghi, as Master Developer of Uptown, designed and built this iconic hotel some 17 years ago with his signature quality standards and remarkable eye for detail. 

“We are privileged to have this opportunity to further elevate the Granduca hospitality experience for our guests. And we are delighted that Giorgio remains a stakeholder who will consult with us to unleash the full potential of this extraordinary property.”
