There are six glass NanaWall SL 70 systems installed in this project. The SL70 incorporates a post between each door panel, adding structural strength and allowing the system to perform in larger sizes. It is highly durable and designed for high-traffic areas. The NanaWall SL70 is NFRC certified and can meet or exceed ENERGY STAR standards in all climate zones. Additionally, it has achieved high ratings in static and dynamic water testing.

In this project, the glass walls provide 160-degree views of the city, making Fahrenheit a Charlotte hot spot.

The Retrofit

The Hyatt Place Uptown Charlotte is located in the city center. It was originally built as a high-end condominium structure with plans for a pool and lounge area on the 20th floor. However, construction was delayed because of the recession of 2008. Seizing the opportunity to purchase the property at a low price, Cleveland Construction updated the building, including changing the top floor to a restaurant. Hyatt purchased the building and finished the project as a hotel, along with residences. Hyatt’s restaurant Fahrenheit is open to the public and overlooks the entire Charlotte skyline.
