The boutique-style hotel will be adjacent to the new GSU dorm that opened near the stadium last fall with about 700 beds.
In addition to the hotel, Stafford will lead an effort to bring 11,000-square-feet of retail and retaurant space to the corner of Hank Aaron Drive and Georgia Avenue.
In a release, Carter said it expects the hotel to bring 50 full-time jobs to Summerhill once it is completed. It’s slated to open in early 2022.
“With unbeatable proximity to downtown Atlanta and Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, and a growing mix of food, beverage and retail offerings in the area, Summerhill offers an outstanding location for all types of visitors,” Carter’s Jack Murphy said in a statement.
In the statement, Carter said the street-level of the hotel and retail property will draw design inspiration from the existing properties in the neighborhood.
Along Georgia Avenue, a variety of businesses have opened recently, including Wood's Chapel BBQ, Junior's Pizza and Halfway Crooks Brewery.
Last year, Carter announced that Maggie Murphy's, a full-service salon and barbershop, will move from its current home in Grant Park to Summerhill's Georgia Avenue, making it the redeveloped drag's first service provider.
