(May 10, 2016) Atlanta, GA – Winter Construction is building the new Solis Hotel Two Porsche Drive, located adjacent to the new Porsche Cars North America Headquarters and close to the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport International Terminal / Concourse F.
The Solis Hotel will be eight stories high with 214 guest rooms and signature suites. The hotel will offer refined and approachable restaurants and bars, and 6,500 square feet of event space that includes a 3,600 square-foot ballroom. The rooftop lounge will provide guests with a view of the Porsche driver development track, as well as landings and takeoffs at the Airport.
HOK Architecture’s design of the luxury hotel complements the Porsche Headquarters with understated elegance and sophistication associated with the global Porsche brand. Glass, aluminum, and metal panels define the hotel’s exterior appearance, as tribute to the sleek and inviting Porsche aesthetic. The hotel’s panoramic view of the Porsche Experience Center, coupled with exceptional amenities, world-class dining, and proximity to the Airport, will provide an unmatched, luxurious stay for guests, visitors, and meeting attendees.
“We are thrilled to be working on this significant design-build hospitality project,” said Brent Reid, Winter CEO. “The development team sets high standards for every aspect of the Solis Hotels, and that’s the level of quality that Winter delivers.” Ken Smith, Winter’s Director of Hospitality, said, “We’re no strangers to rolling out hotel brands – such as the first Hotel Indigo and the AC Hotel in Atlanta and the first Aloft in Charlotte – so we’re excited to add the prestigious Solis brand to our experience. It’s an honor to design-build such an impressive hotel.”
The Solis brand is known internationally for attracting sophisticated travelers. Solis operates hotels in Ireland, Russia, and China, and has plans for new hotels in Indonesia, Qatar, and Orlando, Florida. This will be the first location in the United States.
Winter Construction will officially break ground on the Solis Hotel Two Porsche Drive this month, and a grand opening is planned for Fall 2017. Swiss real estate investment company ACRON, owner of the hotel, hosted the commemorative groundbreaking ceremony in early April.
Winter Construction has consistently been building hotels over the last 20 years. Winter recently completed a major addition to Chateau Elan in Braselton, Georgia, and the conversion of an airport area hotel into a Red Lion. Winter is currently building the AC Hotel in Atlanta’s Buckhead neighborhood, and a luxury hotel in Savannah, Georgia, at 412 Williamson Street overlooking the Savannah River. Winter is also building the Hampton Inn & Suites in Dunwoody, Georgia, the Residence Inn in Dunwoody, and the SpringHill Suites in Orange Beach, Alabama.
