Airport seeks developers for Airport City - Atlanta Business Chronicle

According to a report in today's Atlanta Business Chronicle, officials at Hartsfield -Jackson International Airport are issuing a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) to developers in order to fulfill its plans to add an upscale hotel next to its domestic terminal, a sorely needed amenity for the more than 250,000 travelers that pass through daily. The hotel is the centerpiece of an effort to spur commercial real estate development around the more than 4,700-acre campus of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport that could also include office buildings and retail space. The hotel would rise between the north and south domestic terminals, an area known as the west curb a much-needed convenience for Hartsfield-Jackson's displaced passengers, the industry term for travelers who have missed their connections. A new transit stop could also be part of the mix.

However, the new hotel is just once piece of the planned Airport City. Hartsfield-Jackson also has about 13 acres along Interstate 85 where developers could propose a mixed-use project with office, retail and possibly residential units.

That surface parking is already there. That's the park and ride lot (my preferred airport parking)

Ah ok. I suppose it would be much too expensive to convert all of those to parking decks.

One step at a time. New decks are in the master plan.

Too expensive and for what gain?

If there was a more profitable option available, I'm sure they would make that change. Currently there is no need to convert

More like impossible and illegal. That land is directly behind the runway in the flight path. If anything tall is built there, it makes it difficult for planes to take off and land while keeping clearance.

I'm talking about the massive surface parking lot just west of Airport Blvd. There another, smaller surface parking lot immediately southwest of the Domestic terminal. It's not in the flight path, and I don't know if they have plans for that one.

Looks great & perhaps a step up for on-site airport amenities.
And, if built, it'd be another addition to the string of recent development announcements in Clayton County.

Immense surface parking lots are problematic for stormwater runoff and create their own heat island effect. Seeing as the Flint River runs right under HJIA, stormwater management is something to consider.
