Atlanta's Candler building to be reborn as Curio hotel

Downtown Atlanta

Hilton Worldwide signed a franchise license agreement with REM Associates to add the Candler Building in Atlanta to the Curio Collection.

The hotel is being developed by Development Services Group, and REM is partnering with The Beck Group for design-build architecture and construction services, and NicoleHollis for interior design. The former office building will be turned into a 265-room hotel with king, double queen and suite rooms.

The Candler Building was developed over a century ago by Coca-Cola's Asa Candler, and was Atlanta's first steel skyscraper.
