Braves Development, Encore to Build 140-Room Aloft Hotel at The Battery Atlanta
ATLANTA — Braves Development Co. (BDC), in partnership with Encore Hospitality LLC, has unveiled plans to construct a 140-room Aloft Hotel at The Battery Atlanta, a 1.5 million-square-foot mixed-use development in Cobb County. BDC owns and operates the development, which is home to retail, restaurants, an Omni Hotel, The Coca-Cola Roxy concert venue, multifamily residences and a Comcast office tower. The mixed-use village surrounds SunTrust Park, the new home ballpark of the Atlanta Braves. Aloft is a contemporary hotel brand that operates under the Marriott International Inc. flag. Construction on the new hotel should start this fall, with completion scheduled for third-quarter 2020, according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle. The hotel development comes on the heels of the recently announced Silverspot Cinema and Savi Provisions, a market that will be located on the ground floor of Aloft. In July, German elevator maker Thyssenkrupp announced plans to build its 420-foot-tall headquarters complex at The Battery. Combined, BDC and its partners have provided approximately $850 million in private investment across the total development.
