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.
