Songy Highroads, Hyatt to Develop New Hotel in Downtown Atlanta
ATLANTA — A 50/50 joint venture between affiliates of Atlanta-based developer Songy Highroads LLC and Hyatt Hotels Corp. has acquired a site in downtown Atlanta with plans to develop a new Hyatt Place hotel. Other terms of the transaction were not disclosed. The site, located at the corner of Lucky and Latimer streets, is located directly across from the Georgia Aquarium and one block from Centennial Olympic Park. An abandoned, two-story commercial building and public parking lot currently occupy the site, and both will be demolished to make way for the new hotel. Pricing, permitting and financing are underway, with a construction commencement date to be determined.
