Architect and developer John C. Portman Jr. opened 230 Peachtree in Atlanta, a mixed-use redevelopment project that includes: Hotel Indigo Atlanta Downtown; 290,000 square feet of office space; and JP Atlanta, Portman’s new fine-dining restaurant.
Originally offices built as part of the Peachtree Center, the site was transformed into a signature Portman property. The opening added to the central business district 206 rooms, as well as the restaurant JP Atlanta.
The Hotel Indigo Atlanta Downtown lobby has a spiral glass staircase with steel railings. The Portman style is incorporated into various elements of the guestroom, while area rugs were custom made from digitized images of Portman’s designs and murals to depict the shape and structure of 230 Peachtree. The rooms were painted in Portman White.
Guestrooms have contrasting hard-surface flooring and area rugs, and spa-inspired bathrooms. The hotel also has two suites.
Amenities include a 24-hour health club facility and 1,750 square feet of meeting space.
Hotel Indigo Atlanta Downtown shares the 230 Peachtree building with JP Atlanta, a dining destination. The spaces makes extensive use of Portman’s art in various mediums, from the circular bar to the wall-hung art.
230 Peachtree is connected to AmericasMart’s 7.1-million square foot campus by a skylight corridor and adjacent to the Peachtree Center MARTA Station.
Portman also designed and built the Hyatt Regency Atlanta, the Westin Peachtree Plaza and the Atlanta Marriott Marquis.
