The Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead, previously The Mandarin Oriental, Atlanta, and initially constructed as The Mansion on Peachtree, is a 580 ft (177 m) tall skyscraper in Atlanta, Georgia. It was constructed from 2006 to 2008 and has 42 floors. It is the 12th tallest building in Atlanta and the fifteenth tallest residential highrise in the United States. The design architect for the building was Robert A.M. Stern Architects with Atlanta firm Milton Pate Architects serving as the Architect of Record. The project was developed by Atlanta-based City Centre Properties, LLC and constructed by Holder Construction Company.

History

The tower was built at a cost of $197.4 million and opened on May 1, 2008 as The Mansion on Peachtree, managed by Rosewood Hotels & Resorts.[1] It was sold in foreclosure to iStar Financial on February 3, 2010 for $66.1 million. It was renamed Mandarin Oriental, Atlanta[2] in 2012.[3] The hotel was sold to Xenia Hotels & Resorts, Inc. for $53.5 million on December 10, 2018[4] and renamed Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead.[5]

Building

A 127-room hotel occupies the lower half of the building. Above the hotel are 45 residential units on 26 floors. The Residences also consist of a separate building located in the English Gardens called "The Villas". The Villas consist of three separate private residences that include three floors of living space and private underground garages.

Restaurants

In December 2008, the hotel welcomed the opening of Craft Atlanta, the latest outpost of Tom Colicchio's New York based restaurant concept. Situated in a freestanding building on the front of The Mansion property, the interiors for craft Atlanta were designed by Bentel & Bentel Architects of New York. Milton Pate Architects of Atlanta again served as the Architect of Record for the interior buildout. Freese Construction Company of Atlanta served as the general contractor for the build out. The restaurant closed shortly before Valentine's Day 2010. A new restaurant, Del Frisco's Grille, opened in the space in late 2012.
