Winter Construction has topped out the new Residence Inn by Marriott. The seven-story extended stay hotel, located in the Atlanta Perimeter Center area of Dunwoody, Georgia, will include 127 rooms, an enhanced fitness facility, and an indoor pool. Hotel Development Partners owns the hotel that will be managed by Hotel Equities. A Fogo de Chao restaurant opened on December 1 adjacent to the Spruill Center for the Arts. Future development will include 6,000 square feet of retail space.
Topping out is a construction milestone that is observed when the structure has been constructed
up through the roof or highest level. Winter Construction’s Director, Wyatt Woolverton, said, “We’re
proud and excited to achieve the topping out milestone as we move toward completing this
important hotel located in the heart of Dunwoody.”
“The addition of this Residence Inn by Marriott hotel will enhance the local lodging offerings in one
of Atlanta’s prime office-retail locations,” said Allen O’Brien, CEO of Hotel Development Partners,
LLC. “We’re excited to announce the progress and look forward to the hotel’s opening in the
summer of 2017.”

stakeholders involved, including subcontractors. In addition to Winter and its subcontractors, Hotel
Equities, Hotel Development Partners, DRB Consulting, and Richard Rauh & Associates were in
