Zurich, Switzerland, November 14, 2017 – Real estate investment specialist ACRON AG has received an award in the New Hotel Construction & Design Georgia category at this year’s International Property Awards for the Americas region in Toronto, Canada. The honor was presented for the design of the new, four-star SOLIS HOTEL TWO PORSCHE DRIVE in Atlanta, Georgia.
ACRON has partnered with Capella Hotel Group (CHG) for the launch and management of the Solís Hotel at Two Porsche Drive. This is the first CHG hotel under the Solís Hotels and Resorts brand to be developed in the United States. The hotel opened its doors in Atlanta on November 1, 2017, and is directly adjacent to the newly completed Porsche Cars North America headquarters.
Through its subsidiary ACRON (USA) L.P. (www.acronusa.com) in conjunction with the developer Castleton Holdings, LLC, the award-winning architecture firm HOK, and the world’s most sought-after hotel designers Peter Silling & Associates, ACRON has succeeded in developing a uniquely tailored luxury hotel property on the east side of Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in the time since the opening of the new international terminal. The new hotel’s architecture complements the streamlined form of the nearby Porsche Experience Center, and its interior design incorporates subtle elements evoking auto racing throughout the building in order to underscore the high-powered lifestyle desired by guests.
According to Peer Bender, “It is fantastic to receive this award and be recognized for this major achievement. I would like to thank all of our partners, investors, and other supporters for their excellent teamwork on this project.”
