Construction Tops Out on Atlanta’s Largest Ground-Up Hotel in 40 Years
Georgia World Congress Center Authority (GWCCA), Hilton (NYSE: HLT) and Skanska celebrated a major construction milestone with the ceremonial topping off of the 976-room Signia by Hilton Atlanta. Under development by Boston-based Drew Company, Signia by Hilton Atlanta is the city’s largest downtown ground-up hotel development project in 40 years.
Owned by GWCCA and managed by Hilton Management Services, the 453-foot-tall hotel built on the repurposed foundation of the Georgia Dome will connect to the Georgia World Congress Center when it opens in January 2024.
“As the first newly built Signia by Hilton property, this is an incredible milestone for Hilton and we are delighted to celebrate this occasion with our partners,” said Gary Steffen, global category head, Full-Service Brands, Hilton. The Signia brand incorporates feedback from meeting professionals, guests, owners and developers, and was created to solve for critical gaps in the industry.
