The proposed Columbus Hilton Downtown Expansion project is an addition and expansion to the existing Hilton Downtown located on North High Street at the Columbus Convention Center. The proposed expansion will provide an additional 463 hotel rooms and an additional 53,000 SF of meeting space to the existing facility to support the growing demand for the Convention Center. In addition, the proposed expansion will provide multiple signature food and beverage destinations, including a two story signature restaurant located on N. High Street and a rooftop bar and lounge on the building’s top floor. The exterior facade design is proposed as a composition of floor to floor curtain wall and architectural precast concrete. The proposed expansion has been designed to relate to and complement the existing building as a contemporary counterpart, while also reacting to the Convention Center’s unique and iconic form. It is a goal of the team that the total Hilton complex reads and functions as one property, once complete. The proposed design captures the vision for the final Hilton complex as an energetic and signature destination for both visitors and residences of Columbus. In collaboration with Cooper Carry and Jeffery Beers.
