The company behind a planned 19-story, 185-room Residence Inn by Marriott in Downtown Atlanta has submitted an updated special administrative permit application for the project, according to new permit filings.
Designed by Atlanta-based architecture firm Niles Bolton Associates, the hotel development would rise about 166 feet and total more than 200,000 square feet of floor area.
The developer leading the project is Houston-based investment and development company HarDam Hotels. It is listed in SAP filings alongside High End Investments LLC, which county records show acquired the project site of 355 Centennial Olympic Park Dr. for $3.8 million in March of 2019.
Located on the northeast corner of Centennial Olympic Park Drive and Ivan Allen Jr Boulevard, the 0.81-acre project site had previously been envisioned to hold a smaller hotel. Plans by a joint venture including Dion Meltzer of Meltzer Properties and David Barrett of BA Barrett Construction for a 10-story, 138-key hotel were approved in 2019, but they fell through because of the pandemic, according to Barrett.
The new hotel would be just south of the new 17-story Generation Atlanta apartment building and less than half-a-mile northeast of Centennial Olympic Park.
Designs call for 194 parking spaces in a four-story parking garage accessible from the northwest corner of the site. The hotel would also include provide about 19,000 square feet of open space, including a roughly 8,000-square-foot rooftop deck, and about 4,500 square feet of retail space, plans show.
