The Thompson Buckhead Hotel is an approximately 200 key boutique hotel in the heart of the Buckhead Village. The hotel rises 10 stories above East Paces Ferry Road and is situated to take advantage of views to both Midtown Atlanta and the Buckhead Central Business District. The hotel also uses the bounds of its unusually shaped triangular site to provide a dramatic gesture at the intersection of East Paces Ferry and Buckhead Avenue. Occupying approximately 144,000 GSF, the hotel will include spacious guest rooms, an dynamic entry lobby, and a chef-driven restaurant concept. Conference facilities are provided, including an approximately 4000 SF Ballroom with glass frontage on East Paces Ferry Road. Unique for this hotel is the incorporation of a rooftop amenity level, which will include a swimming pool and a Skybar. Adjacent to the Skybar will be expansive roof terraces, capitalizing on the views to the north, south, and east. The exterior design of the hotel purposely distances itself from the typical development character of its surroundings, in order to create something which looks and feels different from anything else in the immediate area.
RJTR is providing architectural, Structural, Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing services for this Regent Partners and The Loudermilk Companies hotel, which is expected to open in the first quarter of 2021.
