Plans to develop a new hotel-centric mixed-use development in College Park adjacent Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport are moving forward.
Rabun Architects on Wednesday published a fly-through video of a new Sheraton property the firm is designing for its client Choice Gateway of Atlanta, the developer behind the planned College Park hotel mixed-use.
Stills snapped from the fly-through are below.
The new Sheraton will be built as the development’s second phase following the completion of an AC Hotel by Marriott which is currently under construction at the site in Building A, a seven-story structure with 225 keys.
Construction on the new AC Hotel will be completed by December 2019.
The Sheraton will occupy Building B, a seven-story structure with one parking level.
In total, the yet-to-be-named development will offer eight new buildings including two parking structures, roughly 800 keys across three hotels, 440,000 square feet of office, and 10,000 square feet of retail.
It’s unclear what flag will occupy the third hotel, a seven-story building with 225 keys shown as Building C in the site plan.
Vilas Patel, the owner and founder of Choice Gateway, could not be reached Wednesday and his partner Durga Prasad Gadde is out of the country.
The planned City of College Park project sits on 13 acres and is bounded by Roosevelt Highway, Hospitality Way, the ATL SkyTrain line, and Rental Car Center Parkway on the opposite side of I-85 from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
Its coordinates are 33.641202, -84.457289, according to a Developments of Regional Impact study conducted for the project earlier this year.
Also proposed is a covered walkway to the planned ATL West Deck, which will include a new pedestrian access facility to connect to the existing ATL SkyTrain Gateway Station.
The estimated full buildout year is 2024.
College Park up until 2017 was home to a Sheraton for nearly three decades.
City of Atlanta purchased the property—Sheraton Atlanta Airport Hotel—for $17 MM.
The City demolished the property with plans to relocate cargo facilities and add a sixth runway where the hotel was situated, at 1900 Sullivan Road, as part of the $6 billion ATL Next project.
The planned Sheraton is not affiliated with the now-demolished hotel.
