The upsurge in Atlanta’s meetings and conventions is being met with a host of new hotels and meeting venues that have recently come online or are in the development stages.

One of the biggest additions to the mix is a $55 million expansion of the Georgia World Congress Center. The project, now under construction, will add 100,000 square feet between Buildings B and C, creating one million square feet of contiguous exhibition space. It creates a total of about 1.1 million square feet of space under one roof.

The $140 million mixed-use compound slated to develop on the ever-bustling Howell Mill Road might bring West Midtown its first-ever hotel, according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle.

Sure to be a swanky lodging option, this proposed boutique hotel—a Marriott-branded endeavor—is expected to rise as part of the neighborhood’s upcoming mini-city, “The Interlock,” a project that could one day fill the 9-acre site at the corner of Howell Mill Road and 14th Street.

Another major development is slated to rise on West Midtown’s bustling Howell Mill Road, occupying a high-profile site that’s been empty for years.

At the southeast corner of Howell Mill Road and 14th Street, “The Interlock,” a $140 million complex named for its Howell Interlocking Historic District home, will cram roughly 200,000 square feet of office space, 90,000 square feet of retail, and more than 300 apartment units onto the plot, per developers.

New 'multi-use' project will bring office, retail, apartments, single-family homes, and a hotel to 14th Street and Howell Mill Road.

The Interlock, a $140 million "multi-use" development named for the Howell Interlocking Historic District where the project is situated, is moving forward in West Midtown.

Several permit applications April 25, 2018, were filed with the City of Atlanta to ready the site—1115 Howell Mill Road—for the project including vertical demolition, land development, and infrastructure.
