The Pittman Hotel
The Pittman Hotel was originally designed by William Sidney Pittman, Dallas’ first African American architect, in 1916 for the fraternal order of The Knight of Pythias. It later became the Union Bankers Insurance Company that went on to serve the neighborhood for over 30 years. The building will now return to its original glory with restored interiors, exteriors and its famous fourth floor ballroom, where famous blues musicians performed for many. The project, which started in late 2018, is being led by Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, who specialize in historical preservation and revitalization of renowned and celebrated buildings.
“We’ve been searching for the right opportunity in Dallas, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants CEO Mike DeFrino said in a news release, Deep Ellum’s vibrant culture, renowned art galleries and incredible concert venues are a perfect match for our unique take on boutique hospitality.”
The Pittman hotel will include 7 stories with 164 rooms, several meeting and function spaces, restaurants, bars, and a pool terrace and fitness center. With so many activities taking place and the hotel being in one of the largest entertainment areas, developers Vine Street Ventures sought out to find an effective soundproofing solution that would prevent noise from travelling into the residences.
Resilmount product specialists were able to fulfill these requirements by providing the Resilmount A24R resilient clips for sound isolation and to eliminate structure borne vibrations from transferring between the rooms and the entertainment facilities.
At Studco, we pride ourselves on being a solution partner to our customers and look to provide them with the best outcome on their projects and we were delighted to help on this development
