Earlier this month, Pete Patel of RevPAR Enterprises and Jordan Corbitt of Kimley Horn submitted plans for Marietta Street Hotel project located at 329 Mariette Street to the City of Atlanta. The plans require variations from the current SPI-1 order to achieve the desired building and site design, requested through the special administrative permit process.
According to the application documents, the Downtown district The project involves the development of a 0.35 acre site at the intersection of Marietta Street and Latimer Street. Marietta Street connects the site to the west, Latimer Street to the south, and the current Centennial Hyatt Hotel to the north and east. The major components of this project include the construction of an approximately 113,000 square foot, nine-story, 190-room hotel on four levels of valet-only parking, which includes sixty-three parking spaces.
Active uses will be provided along the Marietta Street storefront on the ground floor and level 2 in the form of retail, lobby and offices. In addition, the proposed site plan includes the hotel patio/parking lot, improved on-site pedestrian access, and an on-street carpool/loading area.
Requested variants include:
- A variation of twelve feet to fourteen feet for the maximum curb cut for one-way entry and exit from the parking deck allows vehicle traffic for valet parking inside the deck parking.
- Variation for the width of the cargo area to be reduced from twelve feet to eight feet to maximize the cleared area of the sidewalk along Latimer Street, where the proposed cargo area is located. Latimer Street is currently eighteen feet wide, which is greater than what is required for a one-way street and will allow the passage of vehicles during loading operations.
- Variation to remove the street furniture and tree planting area and reduce the sidewalk clearance area to seven feet adjacent to the proposed load/carpool area. Additionally, we are requesting an amendment to remove the requirement for street tree planting along Latimer Street to allow access to the building’s parking deck and allow room for the parking area. charging/carpooling. Street lights and street furniture are still planned along Latimer Street where space permits.
- Variation to reduce the depth of active use to twelve feet on the second floor of the building and the height of planned active use to twenty-seven feet, four inches above sidewalk level due to site constraints and the internal ramp and circulation of the parking platform.
