More than two years since the first shovel stabbed earth to begin the mixed-use development Ascent Midtown, renderings have emerged showing exactly what the project’s ancillary tower will be.
That’s about half the size of another new Midtown hotel option—the AC Hotel and Moxy Hotel combo under construction on 14th Street—and twice as big as the reborn (albeit more boutique) Hotel Clermont.
Based on new images, the Canopy venture is aiming for an artistic bent.
Designed by R2L:Architects, the hotel will feature a “Canopy Retreat” for business or pleasure, as well as more than 3,000 square feet of meeting space “with spectacular skyline views,” a terrace complemented by a fireplace, workout facilities, a market and cafe, and other hangout spaces.
Settled at 1414 West Peachtree Street, south of 18th Street, the hotel could also become a prime spot for spying local artwork.
In addition to New York-based interior design firm Krause Sawyer, three Atlanta artists—Kevin Chambers, Ryan Coleman, and Emily Mann—have been commissioned to create custom works for the space.
Ascent Midtown, being built by Greystar within walking distance of attractions such as the Alliance Theater and High Museum of Art, is also slated to offer 328 residences in another on-site tower. Elsewhere, expect retail spaces and more than 500 parking spots.
Midtown’s Canopy hotel is expected to open in October, according to project officials. Before then, scope out the project’s planned aesthetics below:
This story has been updated to clarify that the retreat does not include the terrace or the meeting space.
