A hulking downtown parking complex adjoining a Hilton Garden Inn could be poised to see the construction of yet another hotel.
This one, though, a proposed boutique luxury lodge, would ascend from the top of the 10-story parking garage itself, according to a report from Bisnow.
As part of its Park Pavilion mixed-use project, developer Legacy Ventures is planning a potentially $65 million, 150-key hotel that would lord over popular downtown attractions, including the neighboring Georgia Aquarium and Centennial Olympic Park.
The first phase of the venture, in 2008, delivered the 242-key Hilton hotel, 50,000 square feet of retail space, and the unsightly parking garage. Other hotel proposals for the site have flamed out over the years.
Legacy officials, however, have stuck with their larger ambitions for the site.
The deck-topping hotel—dubbed “Ventanas,” after the Hilton’s rooftop events space—could move forward as soon as next year, Bisnow reported.
Based on renderings published by the news outlet, it appears Legacy’s plans call for a high-rise hangout—replete with a pool on the roof of the existing parking deck.
Legacy officials could not be reached for comment as of press time, and this story will be updated if Curbed Atlanta hears back.
A few blocks east, another downtown parking garage is being topped with the Ascent Peachtree apartment tower.
Under construction now, that $125 million project is expected to stand 29 stories total, with 345 rentals. Seventy of the apartments will be reserved as “workforce housing,” officials have said.
