You can’t help but notice the new Hyatt Centric Buckhead if you travel GA400 below Peachtree Street. The new building stands apart from the rest of the skyline, but it is right in the middle of the action. The 1 acre site is between Lenox Square Mall and GA400. PATH400 crosses GA400 here via the the Gordon C Bynum Jr. Pedestrian Bridge.
The Hyatt Centric Buckhead will be near restaurants and shopping, but the connection to PATH400 could be the big draw for the new property. PATH400 provides guests an easy route to Buckhead’s Tech Corridor, MARTA, Lindbergh, and many of Buckhead’s green spaces. Upcoming connections to the Atlanta Beltline to the south and Sandy Springs’ path system to the north will further increase the value of this amenity for hotel guests.
