Capella to Manage Sols Hotel at Two Porsche Drive in Atlanta

Swiss real estate investment company Acron, has chosen Capella Hotel Group to introduce and manage the Sols Hotel at Two Porsche Drive, located immediately adjacent to the Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Sols property, scheduled to open in 2017, will be designed by HOK Architects, which also designed the Porsche Cars North America Headquarters. Peter Silling & Associates will craft the hotel's interior design.

"We are proud to be part of the unique and legendary experience Porsche creates for its customers. We will add a sophisticated hotel to the complex that reflects the high standards of excellence for which Porsche is renowned," said Horst Schulze, Chairman and CEO, Capella Hotel Group.

The Sols Hotel at Two Porsche Drive will be the first new hotel on the east side of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport since the opening of the new International Terminal.

"The City of Hapeville is so pleased to see this world-class project moving forward. We have worked diligently, with the Acron development team and with our partner, the Hapeville Development Authority, to see this day become a reality. This project represents major progress for our community. As we embark on 2016, Hapeville's Commemorative 125th year, this project symbolizes many new possibilities on the horizon for our community," said Mayor Alan Hallman, City of Hapeville, Georgia.

The new Porsche complex which opened in May 2015 is adjacent to the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. The campus is home to over 400 employees and will welcome some 30,000 visitors per year.

The Porsche Experience Center attracts fans from around the globe to the auto company's classic car heritage display and restoration area, business center, signature restaurant, and 1.6-mile driver development track. Additionally, Porsche associates and dealer employees throughout North America visit the company's extensive technical training center.

As an integral part of the complex, the Sols hotel will offer 214 guest rooms and signature suites, restaurants and bars, and 6,500 square feet of event space including a 3,600 square foot ballroom, a Rooftop Lounge with panoramic views of the Porsche handling course.

Porsche Cars North America President and CEO Klaus Zellmer said, "Porsche is proud to be an anchor for even more world class development in the Atlanta Aerotropolis area. We are confident that the Sols Hotel at Two Porsche Drive will become another magnet for the entire South Metro, a beautiful gateway to the City of Hapeville, and a warm and welcoming place for visitors to relax after spending an exciting day at the Porsche Experience Center."

Ground-breaking is scheduled for late March 2016.
