An abandoned, postwar brick commercial building that most recently served as a private school could soon be demolished to make way for a new hotel.
According to Bisnow, the Luckie Street property—located adjacent to the decade-old Hilton Garden Inn and across the street from the Georgia Aquarium—could be turned into a 300,000-square-foot hotel.
Paperwork for a preliminary planning permit was lodged with the city, but it offered very little information beyond the desired use (hotel), and the potential anticipated increase in land usage from the existing 50,000-square-foot facility.
Songy Highroads, the developer behind the proposal, has developed hotels across the country, including Marriott Residence Inn on Peachtree Street in Midtown.
If the hotel is built, it would add to a blossoming hospitality scene around attractions located at the northern edge of Centennial Olympic Park.
And whatever happened to Times Square South?
