Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants on Tuesday announced plans for a second property in Atlanta, this time in Buckhead.

Aptly named Kimpton Buckhead, the 216-key adaptive reuse hotel is slated to debut in late-2020, joining the Kimpton Overland Atlanta Airport.

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), Kimpton’s parent company, maintains its Americas headquarters in Atlanta.

The new Kimpton Buckhead, owned and developed by Atlanta developer Portman Holdings, will be a transformation of a historic 1950s residential building, at 374 East Paces Ferry Road.

Portman is a longstanding partner with IHG, having worked with the company to develop multiple other brands and properties in Atlanta, and other markets such as San Diego and Denver.

The boutique hotel will feature a ground-floor Kimpton restaurant and bar, courtyard dining and drinking venue, and private pool, a rooftop lounge and approximately 3,000 square feet of meetings and events space.

“We’re thrilled to expand our presence with a second Kimpton hotel in the Atlanta market,” Mike DeFrino, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants’ CEO, said in a press release Tuesday.

“The partnership with Portman Holdings allows us the perfect opportunity to bring Kimpton to the stylish Buckhead neighborhood and to continue consolidating our presence in the Southeast at-large.”

The Kimpton brand continues to grow in the US and internationally with over 25 Kimpton hotels across 20 new global destinations including Mexico City, Paris, Barcelona, Bali & Shanghai, scheduled to open in the next three to five years.
