Airport officials are seeking bids for two transformational projects for Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in Georgia, USA. The projects include developing a new 300-room, four-star hotel and a major recycling facility. Two pre-proposal conferences took place today (July 28, 2015), to examine the request for proposals (RFP) received from qualified respondents so far.
The three respondents that have qualified to submit a proposal for the hotel and travel plaza, with accompanying gas station, office space and possible residential units, include Airmall, Regent Partners Joint Venture and Carter/Majestic Realty/GPM Investments.
Developers for the Green Acres ATL Energy Park will need to design, construct, finance, operate, and maintain a facility capable of repurposing, reprocessing or recycling at least 90% of the domestic municipal solid waste generated at the airport.
Miguel Southwell, aviation general manager, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, said, “These projects will ensure the continued growth of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. A top-tier hotel on airport property will offer travelers greater convenience and choice.
“Construction of the Green Acres facility will go far toward achieving our goal of making Hartsfield-Jackson one of the most sustainable airports in the world.”
