The Candler Building is a 17-story highrise at 127 Peachtree Street, NE, in Atlanta, Georgia. When completed in 1906 by Coca-Cola magnate Asa Griggs Candler, it was the tallest building in the city. This location where Houston (now John Wesley Dobbs Ave) joins Peachtree Street was the location of one of the earliest churches in the city which was built on land donated by Judge Reuben Cone in the 1840s. It forms the northern border of Woodruff Park.
The building's owner, REM Associates, L.P., announced plans in 2016 to convert the structure to a luxury boutique hotel. The hotel will be named Candler Hotel Atlanta, managed by Highgate Hotels, and will be part of the Curio Collection division of Hilton Hotels. The 265-room hotel, set to open in 2017, will retain the building's iconic lobby, with a restaurant in the former Central Bank and Trust location. It will also feature meeting space and an outdoor roof terrace.
