Paperwork filed with the City of Atlanta indicates another relatively tall hotel has entered the pipeline in downtown’s tourist and stadium district.
According to recent filings with the city’s Office of Buildings, developers hope to soon demolish a low-rise building at 329 Marietta St. to set the stage for intown’s second Moxy by Marriott hotel.
The development team of Nexera Capital and Emerge Hospitality Group has previously said they hope to build the 13-story hotel as soon as possible, with downtown set to host FIFA World Cup matches in two years.
The 183-room lodge would rise next to and over downtown’s Hyatt Place hotel, within a quick walk of Centennial Olympic Park, the Georgia Aquarium, Georgia World Congress Center, and Mercedes-Benz Stadium, among other attractions.
Plans call for a rooftop lounge, open-air bar at street level, a speakeasy, and several other gathering spaces around the property.
The lone available rendering, as drawn up by Elevate Architecture Studio, indicates the hotel will also include multi-story, lighted signage wrapping a corner of the building over entries.
Inquiries to Moxy media representatives and the project’s permitting applicant in Atlanta were not returned this week.
Fulton County property records indicate the .35-acre site sold for $4 million in summer 2022.
Marriott bills the Moxy concept as being more “playful, affordable, and stylish” than more upscale brands under its flag. More than 125 locations operate around the world.
Atlanta development wonks may recall Marriott opened its other Atlanta Moxy hotel—actually a dual-branded fusion of Moxy and its European-inspired AC Hotel brand—on 14th Street in Midtown just in time for another epic event: Atlanta’s 2019 Super Bowl.
