South Fulton to add two hotels

During the city of South Fulton council meeting on Monday, Sept. 24, the mayor and City Council unanimously approved the request to rezone a property from a Mixed-Use District (MIX) with conditions to a Community Based District that will allow for the development of two major hotels, according to a press release.

This approval comes with conditions recommended by staff.

ADC Development Group, the developer, plans to sub-divide a 59,040 square feet by 56,000 square feet parcel on Senoia Road along Ella Lane and build a Home2 Suites by Hilton and a Townplace Suite by Marriott. The hotels will bring jobs, and quality lodging options to residents and visitors in the area. Also approved, was a change in the area’s Future Land Use designation from Suburban II Neighborhood to a Community Live-Work District.

“The City of South Fulton is advancing and moving things forward,” said Mayor William Bill Edwards. “This is a prime area for hotels and future development. The site sits along Highway 85, allowing us to receive visitors from more southern states including Alabama and Mississippi.”

The hotels will be owned and managed locally by Fairburn Hospitality LLC. With this approval, the city will have three hotels including the Fairfield Inn, which opened in January.
