In Memory of Mark S. Eggl

Posted on March 27, 2024

DP3 Architects mourns the loss of one of its founders, Mark S. Eggl, who passed away on March 17, 2024. Mark founded the firm in 1984 along with two Clemson University classmates; Samuel D. Justice and J. Michael Taylor.  Mark was instrumental in shaping the firm’s culture and dedicated to providing the best quality projects and service to our clients. 

Mark was a do-it-yourself farm boy from Cando, ND whose work ethic set an example for everyone he worked with.  There was no daily task that he was too proud to do if it meant making the firm better. He was a fantastic detailer, able to offer solutions to unconventional problems.  His designs combined simple, well-thought-out solutions, with the desire to always present a client with the unexpected.  Notable projects he led include the Mauldin Sports Center, Pleasant Ridge Camp and Retreat Center, C.C. Woodson Community Center, Surfside Beach Fire Headquarters, and the Fountain Inn Heritage Museum.

As a mentor, Mark was very generous with his time.  He would always stop what he was doing to answer a question about a project, the firm, or a personal issue that just needed a sympathetic ear.  He was very willing to share his experiences with the young professionals in the office to help them be their best. 

Mark thought of the community as a whole, dedicating his time to charities and causes that he felt passionate about.  As a graduate of both Leadership Greenville and Leadership South Carolina he gained an understanding of issues that affected those around him and did his best as a leader to help contribute to their solutions.

We will remember Mark as a leader and a mentor.  We will remember the way he threw his head back when he laughed, the time he gave to all who asked, and of course, the burgers.  Nobody grilled like Mark!

Our thoughts are with his wife, Carla Ann , daughter Ashley, son Stephen, and their families.

The Daniel Building Revitalization

Posted on March 21, 2024

DP3 Architects is partnering with SeamonWhiteside on the revitalization of the historic Daniel Building. This project aims to preserve the building’s heritage, while enhancing the functionality and aesthetic appeal.

Formerly known as the Landmark Building, the 25-story office tower will be rebranded as “The Daniel,” in honor of it’s founder, Charlie Daniel, whose construction company, Daniel International Corp., originally built the structure. As Greenville’s tallest building, The Daniel has played an pivotal role in shaping the city’s skyline and economic landscape.

The renovation effort will focus on preserving the building’s historic significance, while modernizing its infrastructure, interior spaces, and facades. A refreshed lobby design will feature a mid-century modern design with wood tones and brass accents, paying homage to the site’s history and original appearance. New outdoor seating, landscaping, lighting, and other site furnishings will be added to the updated plaza, ensuring The Daniel remains a dynamic and inviting space. DP3 Architects is excited to be part of this groundbreaking project. The Daniel is located at 301 N. Main St. in downtown Greenville and is set to be completed in 2025.

110 North Kitchen + Commissary Ribbon Cutting

Posted on March 4, 2024

The City of Anderson celebrated the official opening of 110 North Kitchen + Commissary on Thursday, February 29th, 2024 during a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

This project is a shared top-of-the-line commercial kitchen available to entrepreneurs who need space for food preparation. The 2,500-square-foot space aims to serve as a vital resource for bakers, cooks, food truck owners, and farmers looking to expand their business footprint without the immediate investment in a brick-and-mortar location.

City of Anderson Mayor, Terrence Roberts, kicked off the ceremony by expressing his enthusiasm for the positive impact that 110 North Kitchen + Commissary will have on the local economy and its culinary landscape. The kitchen incubator project will offer state-of-the-art facilities, including shared kitchen spaces, commissary services, and support programs to help culinary entrepreneurs grow and succeed. This venture aligns with the city’s commitment to promoting economic development, fostering innovation, and building a strong sense of community.

DP3 Architects was proud to partner with the City of Anderson and the Appalachian Regional Commission to make this project a success. To learn more about 110 North Kitchen + Commissary click HERE.
