As construction moves forward with the Hyatt Centric Buckhead, a planned 16-story hotel on the fringes of Lenox Square Mall, a year-long construction timeline and probable early-2021 opening has been floated by one of the development’s contractors.
Recently filed permit applications submitted to the City of Atlanta seek permission to construct the foundation of the hotel at 3301 Lenox Road, at a cost of $1,600,000.
“The construction timeline will mirror that of Hyatt Place at Centennial Park,” a contractor shared with What Now Atlanta over the phone.
“They’ll finish the foundation, then they’ll complete the core-shell portion and then build out the interior. I anticipate it coming online around [February 2021], which puts it at about one to one-and-a-half years from start to finish.”
Alpharetta-based real estate firm Songy Highroads LLC is developing the hotel, having just completed the 11-story, 175-room Hyatt Place Centennial Park in downtown Atlanta which opened in September 2019.
Once complete, Hyatt Centric Buckhead will offer 221 keys including 12 suites in addition to a rooftop restaurant with “360-degree views” of Buckhead and downtown, set to be designed by Cooper Carry’s The Johnson Studio, in partnership with a yet-to-be-named “local restaurateur.”
There will also be a lobby café/restaurant with outdoor dining “easily accessed” from Path 400.
Additional amenities include a fitness center, a pool and deck, and 4,000-square-feet of meeting space.
The Hyatt Centric at Lenox Square will be Songy Highroads’ seventh Hyatt-branded development since 2014.
Others are located in Houston, Washington, D.C., and Virginia.
