Parking in Midtown Atlanta is going to be a premium…..more so as the surface lots getting “eaten up” by new construction buildings. And Another Midtown Parking Lot Soon To Be Gone!
Another Midtown Parking Lot Soon To Be Gone
A 14-story dual brand hotel has been proposed for the parking lot just across Ponce de Leon Avenue from the Fox Theater. The hotel will consist of 154 rooms under the Marriott Courtyard flag and another four floors with 128 rooms in the Marriott Element brand. The hotel floors sit above five levels of parking with 185 spaces that will be accessible to the public. Automobile access to the building will be provided off Ponce with a circular drop-off area and internal ramps to the deck above. The developer proposed a ground floor restaurant and lounge/bar at the corner with a second floor terrace overlooking this iconic intersection which is anchored by the Fox Theatre, Georgian Terrace and Ponce Condos.
Of course, many of the residents of Windsor Over Peachtree with North facing views will have….no more view. In fact, they will be looking right at a parking garage for those first 6 or so floors, depending on how the garage lays out. And the remaining floors will either be looking at the garage or the guest rooms of the hotel. Hmmmm.
I always work with my clients when showing Midtown Atlanta condos, and mention any possibilities of what could happen to a view, along with the statement, “no view is ever guaranteed.” And it’s true. Now, if a newer building has just been built, you may know what your view will be for awhile…but anything low-rise could be subject to a sale and a tear down.
This location will certainly be helpful to out-of-town visitors in for an event at the Fox Theater, as well as the Emory Crawford Long Hospital is just two blocks South of this location. Access to the hotel without a car, will be easy as the North Avenue MARTA station is in the same block as the hotel. The address of the parking lot is 640 Peachtree Street and is shown on the map below.
