As tourist season heats up, downtown Atlanta’s hotel offerings continue to show promise of significantly expanding in coming years.
Permits allowing the Hyatt Place Centennial Park’s buildout have been issued, moving the downtown hotel development ever closer to reality, according to What Now Atlanta.
It joins at least three other lodges in the works or recently finished within a few blocks.
The 11-story, $12-plus million project, which proposes 174 rooms, ground-floor retail, a pool and gym, just earned permits to start work on the building’s interior.
The development, under construction near the Georgia Aquarium at the intersection of Luckie and Latimer streets, is spearheaded by the partnership of Songy Highroads and the Hyatt Hotels Corporation.
The buildout slated for the hotel’s guts is reportedly expected to cost around $5.8 million, while the exterior had a budget of some $6.7 million.
The hotel to-be is anticipated to woo tourists with its vicinity to Centennial Olympic Park, the Georgia World Congress Center, and the aforementioned aquarium, among other downtown hits.
Developers filed permits to kick off exterior construction in March 2018, WNA reported.
Centennial Olympic Park, about a block south of the upcoming hotel, is also undergoing a $17 million expansion project.
