Its Official! InterContinental Coming To Midtown Atlanta

After months of rumors and speculation, InterContinental Hotels Group announced today, they will put a new hotel in the planned 1400 Peachtree development at the corner of Peachtree and 17th streets. Atlanta-based land investor, Shailendra Group LLC, and real estate investment firm Jamestown, have hired renowned architectural firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP to design 1400 Peachtree. Skidmore, Owings & Merrill’s designs have reshaped skylines from the East Coast to the Middle East. InterContinental Hotels Group, with its North American headquarters in Dunwoody, owns the InterContinental Buckhead, one of only four hotels in Atlanta that hold Five Diamond ratings. With the Buckhead property said to be on the market, expect InterContinental to groom the midtown project to mirror the service of its Buckhead property. Repeat Atlanta!
