As Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport works toward developing a hotel next to its terminal, it has released new renderings showing the latest vision for a hotel with a modern, geometric design.
The Atlanta airport hotel to sit just steps away from the domestic terminal will be an InterContinental, according to Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed. Current plans are for a 440-room hotel, according to airport documents.
But the process toward solidifying the hotel deal is still in progress, and the design could change. The 11-story hotel proposal is awaiting review to determine if it would interfere with radar.
The project architect is expected to be John Portman & Associates, part of a team led by Atlanta-based developer Carter, Majestic Realty Co. and GPM Investments LLC.
The hotel would be part of a broader "airport city" project to be developed by the team, pending approval of the deal. The airport city plan includes the hotel as well as a commercial development with office space and a travel plaza with a gas station and convenience store. The project is being managed by a recently-formed airport division called ATL Business Ventures.
