Mandarin Oriental announces Atlanta property

17 Nov 2008 by Mark Caswell

Luxury hotel
brand Mandarin Oriental is to open a hotel and residences in the Arts district
of Atlanta.

Mandarin
Oriental, Atlanta, is scheduled to open in 2011, and will form part of a
53-storey mixed-use development on “Midtown Mile”, an area of the city emerging
as a district for business, shopping, dining and culture (Richard
Meier’s High Museum and the yet-to-open Atlanta Symphony Centre are both
located here).

There will be 195
guestrooms in the hotel, including 35 suites, as well as 71 residences
occupying the top floors of the building.

The complex will
be one of the highest buildings in Atlanta once completed, and will feature a “soaring
glass facade with panoramic views over the historic Piedmont Park and
the surrounding metropolitan areas”.

The hotel will
feature four “creative dining and cocktail venues”, as well as a 2,000-sqm spa
with treatments rooms, water and heat therapies, a beauty salon and barber, and
fitness facilities including Pilates and yoga studios, and an outdoor swimming
pool and deck.
