Fairlie-Poplar jewel to get another life as luxury hotel.

If you’re one of many Atlantans who have ever walked by the Candler Building and been captivated by its extravagant beauty, you may be excited to hear that you will soon be able to experience the remarkable building from the inside as well.

If all goes well, Curio – a luxury Hilton brand – will be headlining the transformation of the building into a boutique hotel, according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle.

The property – which has until now been used as an office building – will become a 265 room hotel with oversized king, double queen, and suite rooms.

The building, which is Atlanta’s first steel skyscraper, will keep its original Tiffany windows and . A restaurant and a bar will be added to the hotel.

The Candler Building was designed and developed in 1906 by Coca-Cola magnate Asa Candler.

From the building’s website “The Candler Building’s elaborately-carved facade and stunning lobby pay tribute to the world’s leaders in arts and sciences. The marble busts and ornamental friezes were handcrafted by a select group of international artists. This stonework was carved from north Georgia Amicalola marble, personally selected by Mr. Candler and architect George Murphy.”
