The slow renovation of the Clermont Hotel has taken a very visible step forward with the return of the landmark radio mast atop the building.
Crews hoisted the first section of the metal tower with neon signage to the roof this morning, following 11 months of restoration work.
The hotel is being transformed from seedy to boutique, thanks to a renovation that kicked off back in 2016, following numerous false starts beginning in 2014.
By summer of last year, new windows had started going in at the building, which will ultimately provide a boutique accommodation just a block from the Beltline and Ponce City Market.
A newly launched website touts seven room types, ranging from shared bunk rooms to sprawling suites. The building will also boast four dining and drinking options, including a rooftop bar with views of the skyline and Beltline.
Up on the roof, the bar has been built out, railings have been added, and concrete pavers are going down to create a flat surface.
Construction will be done in March, with the first rooms available starting April 1.
UPDATE: Hotel Clermont is anticipated to open some time in March, though currently the first reservations are being accepted for April 1.
