June 10, 2019. Charleston, SC. Mountain Shore Properties, a Charleston, South Carolina-based developer, has been named Developer of the Year by Hyatt as part of Hyatt’s owner awards.

Through this series, Hyatt recognizes owners and developers for their contributions and shared commitment to deliver a superior level of care. The awards were presented by Hyatt’s leadership team in April at Hyatt’s Americas owners conference in Nassau, Bahamas at Grand Hyatt Baha Mar. In receiving Developer of the Year, Mountain Shore Properties was recognized for its excellent construction quality, efficiency, and hotel development in strategic locations.

Mountain Shore Properties has developed two Hyatt select service hotels and is the process of developing two more. It recently opened Hyatt Place Sumter/Downtown and Hyatt House Mount Pleasant-Midtown, both in S.C. The company has two more hotels under construction: Hyatt House Nashville Downtown in Tenn. and Hyatt House Tallahassee in Fla.

“We are both honored and deeply humbled to receive this award from Hyatt,” said Stephen Wendell, CEO, Mountain Shore Properties, LLC. “Development is what we love and we’ve gone from zero to 60 with Hyatt in a matter of a few years. This award is a major endorsement from Hyatt, and we are very proud to be recognized by one of the leading names in global hospitality and value our relationship with them.”

“As we continue to pursue thoughtful growth, we are focused on working alongside owners and developers who are aligned with our purpose of care,” said Jim Tierney, senior vice president of development and owner relations, Hyatt. “Our relationship with Mountain Shore Properties has grown significantly in a short period of time and we are thrilled to recognize the team’s contributions with the Developer of the Year award.”

Mountain Shore Properties’ Hyatt House Nashville Downtown is scheduled to open during the first quarter of 2020, while Hyatt House Tallahassee is anticipated to be completed by fourth quarter 2020.
