Yet another hotel project has broken ground along Atlanta’s quickly urbanizing Perimeter.
Sited at 121 Perimeter Center West, less than a mile from MARTA’s Sandy Springs station, Marriott and Chattanooga-based Vision Hospitality Group aim to deliver the 156-key AC Hotel next year.
In addition to standard amenities usually afforded to business travelers, the under-construction hotel promises “the area’s first rooftop bar boasting panoramic views of the Atlanta skyline,” according to a Vision Hospitality news release.
It’s another Perimeter development taking a page from the intown playbook, specifically Midtown’s fusion of an AC/Moxy hotels that opened in time for Atlanta’s Super Bowl.
Future guests can also look forward to “buzzing” communal space such as the seventh-floor AC Lounge—“a collaborative work space by day and gathering place by night”—as well as quiet hangouts like the AC Library, which is expected to offer ambient lighting and a collection of novels.
And that rooftop bar is set to be open year-round, featuring tapas, craft cocktails, beer, and wine.
The other food and beverage option—the AC Kitchen—would supply the requisite continental breakfast at the ground floor.
It’s far from the only lodging option planned for the fast-evolving Perimeter area.
In nearby Dunwoody, a mixed-use venture by developer JSJ Perimeter is slated to house an 11-story, 160-room boutique hotel where Ashford-Dunwoody Road meets Perimeter Center East.
Nearby, North Carolina-based GMC Real Estate is moving forward with a five-story hotel project as part of its own mixed-use community.
And the long-anticipated, potentially $2 billion High Street project by Boston’s GID is poised to bring even more hotel rooms with its 42-acre mini-city.
