Under the threat of demolition only a few years ago, Downtown Atlanta’s historic Glenn office building reopened as the cosmopolitan Glenn Hotel following extensive renovations. A roof-top patio bar with glass railings was added, taking advantage of the striking views of Midtown Atlanta to the north and Downtown Atlanta to the east.
The 80-year old, 10-story building has added a new rear entry courtyard and a private second story terrace. All new systems were provided and windows were replaced with historically compatible, insulated units. A second exit stair was added by cutting through the existing slabs. The limestone and brick facades were cleaned and repointed.
