A hotel developer is proposing building a 128-room, four-story hotel on property surrounding the Spruill Center for the Arts Gallery on Ashford Dunwoody Road.

The project, proposed by Hotel Development Partners, also will include two outbuildings to be used for restaurants or shops, representatives of the developers told members of the Dunwoody Homeowners Association board on April 13. The rezoning of the property still must be approved by the city.

The property had been zoned for more than 260 apartments, Dunwoody Chamber of Commerce board member Don Boykin told the group.

“This is an opportunity to do something more in keeping with Dunwoody’s long-term vision for this area,” Boykin said.

The developers will lease the property from the arts center on a 99-year lease, Boykin said. “This was a great win-win,” he said.

The hotel will be constructed at the end of the property farthest from Ashford Dunwoody Road, according to a site plan provided by the developers. The development will not require an additional entrance on Ashford Dunwoody Road, they said.

Hotel Development Partners already is building an 8-story Hampton Inn and Suites at the Sterling Point development nearby.
