This time last year, Midtown’s skyline looked drastically different than today, especially in subdistrict’s blocks north of fourth street.
Two of the most northernly additions under construction include the Hilton-branded, 176-key Canopy Midtown hotel and the adjoining Ascent Midtown residential tower—both pieces of the same mixed-use venture on West Peachtree Street.
Construction of the R2L:Architects-designed hotel, boasting amenities like a terrace with an outdoor fireplace, workout facilities, and a market and cafe, is slated for completion in November.
Project representatives say the boutique lodge has already booked some group reservations and should be open to the public before Thanksgiving. Its adjacent apartment tower is expected to finish by year’s end, too.
Canopy’s chief enthusiast, Vinny Bucci, led Curbed Atlanta on a tour of the under-development hotel, which features an art-centric aesthetic that’s complemented by the works of local creatives Kevin Chambers, Ryan Coleman, and Emily Mann.
Bucci is proud to note how similar the project looks to its early renderings.
