Imperial Hotel in Atlanta redeveloped as The Commons at Imperial Hotel

The historic Imperial Hotel at 355 Peachtree Street in downtown Atlanta has a new look and a new name.

Redevelopment is complete on the building rechristened "The Commons at Imperial Hotel." The eight-story brick tower, built in the early 1900s, was redeveloped by Atlanta-based Columbia Residential and Ohio-based National Church Residences.

The building will have 90 units (all LEED Gold-certified) for Atlanta residents in need of permanent supportive housing. Each residence is equipped with a full, energy-efficient kitchen and bathroom.

The hotel shut down around 1980 and sat vacant until the construction boom surrounding the 1996 Olympics. That’s when it was redeveloped to provide affordable housing, particularly to residents with special needs, Sams reported.
