I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to having this stretch of Peachtree completed. Not because of the construction, but because I am anxious to see the buildings completed and occupied. We are going to end up with great new places to eat, sleep and shop, Speaking of sleeping, the new Loews Atlanta Hotel is sure to be the place to stay for those who want to be close to everything, including Piedmont Park.
Loews Hotels continues to make significant progress on its newest venture, the Loews Atlanta Hotel.
