Interior design firm unveils latest hotel in Atlanta’s historic neighborhood.

NEW YORK, NY - Award-winning interior design firm Sawyer & Company announced the completion of their latest project, the brand-new Hyatt Centric Buckhead in Atlanta, Georgia. In conceptualizing the look of the hotel, the team studied the local history, landscape, and heritage of Buckhead’s location, looking to the unique stories and historic details that defined the area through the ages. The Sawyer & Company team found themselves inspired by both the neighborhood’s unique current identity as well as the history of Georgia’s clay craftsmanship, which has been associated with the region for as far back as five thousand years.

Buckhead’s contemporary society dates to 1838 when Henry Irby bought hundreds of acres of land, and shortly thereafter built a general store and a tavern. Irby’s tavern became the stopping place for travelers in the sparsely populated area. The community began to grow around it with families and businesses taking up residence. Today, the thriving neighborhood is one of the wealthiest in the Southeast and is home to a variety of cultural activities.

The design ideated by Sawyer & Company throughout the 218-room Hyatt Centric Buckhead was inspired by three overarching themes – the Historical Local Context, Compression and Expansion, and Georgia’s vast natural Clay Resources – alongside the Hyatt brands’ international and global spirit of color, pattern, and fashion.

Georgia is famed for its bountiful clay resources and has a rich history of pottery with archaeologists dating pottery remnants found in the region to as early as 3,000 BC. Georgia’s four hundred and fifty or so known folk potters did not consider themselves artists; instead, they were humble artisans, like the blacksmith or basket maker, and primarily focused on the creation of vessels for simple everyday use. Appropriately, a playful expression of clay, pottery, and sculpture throughout the space celebrates the history of these local creators, sculptors, and artisans.

This theme can be seen in the glazing, shape, and color of the front desk, the first stop on any visitor’s journey inside the property, which also features a light installation inspired by the shape of pottery. A pottery wall installation by American artist John Johnson adorns the area next to the front desk, while elevator cab artwork from Quebec-based artist Claire Desjardins again gives off a glazed look. Headboards in the guestrooms are inspired by paint on ceramics, while the pattern on the TV wall wallcoverings was inspired by the crackled texture of worn glazed pottery. Guestroom area rugs express the organic shape of earthenware, along with the greater Georgia clay landscape.

The elegant neighborhood of Buckhead in Atlanta houses both low-rise and high-rise structures, and this compression and expansion is likewise expressed in the hotel’s design. The neighborhood features both urban landscapes and plentiful green space, with architecturally striking commercial and residential buildings prevalent throughout. Buckhead’s convenient location close to many of Atlanta’s most popular destinations makes it an ideal location for a short or long-term stay, while providing a true feeling of a home away from home in a clearly defined neighborhood with a distinct personality of its own. The notion of opposites and contrast along with expansion and compression were seamlessly incorporated throughout the design of the hotel.

Visitors are greeted by a reception wall located behind the front desk, featuring a locally inspired pattern and motif. Robust coloration adorns the elevator lobby wall, and in the guest corridor, a patterned wall covering leads travelers to and from the elevator banks, intuitively guiding guests and easing the internal navigation. In the guestrooms, a chevron fabric pattern highlights the headboards, recalling fashionable elements of the neighborhood. Closets within the rooms are entirely unique, celebrating fashion and the neighborhood’s many varied upscale boutiques.

The wall covering and art chosen to adorn the second-floor meeting space, designed by Red Tape – an Orlando-based studio founded by Peterson Guerrier and Chris Jones – are bold and graphic, relying on negative space to create a defined sense of space. The color palette on the second floor celebrates nature, with the carpet in the guest corridor inspired by both natural elements and the notion of compression and expansion that repeatedly features throughout.

“Our goal was to express the location in a unique way, to celebrate the neighborhood, the land, and the history in a playful and sculptural way through form, pattern and color,” says Sawyer & Company founder, Tracey Sawyer.

In recent years, the Peachtree Road corridor (Buckhead Village) has been given special attention by Buckhead’s commercial planners and developers. As a result of much considered forethought, this area has become home to some of the best shopping, dining, and entertainment in Atlanta, and all of the southeastern United States. Buckhead has been called the “Beverly Hills of Atlanta,” and it’s not hard to see why. Thanks to its history, magnificent homes, landscaping, location, luxury, shopping and amenities, a home in Buckhead today is a home in the most prestigious and wealthiest area of Atlanta.

Now, with the opening of the Hyatt Centric, the community features a stunning new hotel, complemented by the thoughtful design executed by the Sawyer & Company team.

Gridlock Guy: Inexpensive rideshare shuttle debuts this week in Buckhead

Did anyone hear that record scratch? Everyone at the party stopped talking and stared. Something inexpensive exists in Buckhead? That is exactly the selling point of a new rideshare shuttle service going online in Buckhead on Tuesday, April 19. The Buc, which has existed in some form since 2003, is re-launching this week as an on-demand shuttle that can deliver people to Buckhead destinations during working hours.

Its previous iterations only stopped at fix points, but the new service operates very similarly to Uber and Lyft. Commuters can download “the Buc”, the service’s app, and type in their respective locations. Then the app dispatches a shuttle, one of four 12-14 passenger Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans in their fleet.

“It’s still doing the shared ride experience, but it is taking more cars off the road,” Livable Buckhead executive director Denise Starling told the AJC and 95.5 WSB. Another differentiator from single-car rideshare services is price. “The technology is similar — we’re going to be a lot cheaper, honestly.”

As Starling puts it, the Buc “provides last-mile connectivity between transit stations and your workplace.” Those trips on the new Buc service - ones that start or end at the Buckhead or Lenox MARTA stations - are still free. But now the Buc offers trips between any destination within its service zone for a flat $3 fee. Riders can also add additional passengers to their parties for only $1.50 each.

To get the revamped shuttle off the ground, the Buc is offering the first six rides free to every new customer.

The Buc’s service zone cuts through what is described as central Buckhead: Peachtree at East Roxboro to the northeast, Piedmont at Habersham to the northwest, and just below the Pharr Road intersections with Piedmont and Peachtree to the south. So it serves the bulk of the skyscraper-laden commerce area.

The service times show that Buckhead workers are the main constituency. The Buc runs weekdays from 7-9:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., and 3:30-7 p.m. It extends to 8 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays. So ideal uses for it are completing that last mile between MARTA stations and job sites or attending lunches and happy hours. Starling also said they expect big usage from travelers in hotels and they want to encourage Buckhead residents to use it, so they eliminate the clutter of short, one-person trips from Buckhead’s clogged arteries.

The new Buc is also going to stand out from its previous version and from ridesharing services because people in wheelchairs can also use it on-demand. “People in wheelchairs are going to have a lot more options,” Starling said, because one of the four Buc shuttles will have a wheelchair lift and commuters can order it right then. Current mobility services have to be booked well in advance, Starling said, making usage less flexible.

Grants, membership dues, fundraising and sponsorship fund Livable Buckhead, which runs as a non-profit. The organization has many projects: parks and greenways (like PATH400), development planning and recycling. They also work with employers on transportation to encourage carpooling and transit.

The Buckhead Community Improvement District — a tax district that commercial property owners pay into — funds the Buc and gives some funding to Livable Buckhead, which operates the Buc. Starling says awareness will be the biggest obstacle for the Buc. “We have to teach people how to use it,” she said, noting the numerous events Livable Buckhead has held to educate people about PATH400, the BeltLine-like pathway that borders GA-400 from Wieuca Road to Sidney Marcus Boulevard.

But Starling does not think that Buckhead’s constituency, which is typically higher income, will shy away from the Buc like they might with MARTA. “”You see [people of all incomes] using Uber and Lyft.”

This may be true, but people love autonomy. If the Buc struggles to deliver people in a timely manner, it will not succeed. Since it runs in a very specific area in small windows, the Buc will have to really super-serve its diehard users to entrench itself.

The new Buc was supposed to launch on April 1st, 2020, but COVID-19 delayed that. Starling said that ended up playing to Livable Buckhead’s advantage. “The pandemic was actually a good thing for us, because it really was a forced pilot for telework.” Starling also mentioned the I-85 bridge collapse in 2017 as another catastrophe that forced people to reconsider their commuting options. MARTA ridership spiked for that brief time.

Serving a niche inexpensively has not worked well for the Atlanta Streetcar, which works on a small Downtown Atlanta loop. But the Buc is banking on being able to win people with flexibility (serving every area in their zone and not just a few stops), luxury and incentives (very nice Sprinter vans and free rides), and a sense of duty (taking cars off the roads). And it’s cheap.

The Buc alone may not eliminate long commutes, but it could make MARTA more attractive by getting people from the stations to job sites more easily. The Buc will also take cars off the road for lunch trips on rainy days or just beyond walking distances. And the shuttle will also be a cheap option for out-of-towners.

HUB404 is a transformative half-mile greenspace in Buckhead which will create a nine-acre "cap park" atop the GA400.

BUCKHEAD, GA — The HUB404 Conservancy board named the nonprofit organization's first executive director, according to a news release.

Anthony Rodriguez's new role was announced Wednesday, May 4. Established with the Buckhead Community Improvement District (CID), HUB404 is a transformative half-mile greenspace in Buckhead which will create a nine-acre "cap park" atop the GA400 and encourage economic development, the release stated.

"I'm honored to get the opportunity to lead this innovative and transformative project," Rodriguez said in a statement. "The vision for HUB404 is ambitious, but it is exactly what is needed to bring urban sustainability and economic development together in the heart of Buckhead. I look forward to working with the Conservancy board to make the vision a reality."

In this role, Rodriguez will direct the next phases of funding, planning and development for the award-winning project, leveraging his decades of experience in nonprofit leadership and community service, according to the release.

Rodriguez previously co-founded and served as president, CEO and producing artistic director of the Aurora Theatre, the second-largest nonprofit professional theatre production company in Georgia. During his tenure, Aurora Theatre grew from a startup with one employee and a $50,000 annual budget to a professional company with nearly 30 employees and a $4.2 million annual budget, according to the release.

He also serves on the boards for the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce and Georgia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and assists the Atlanta Regional Commission and National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures.

"We're thrilled to have Anthony join the HUB404 Conservancy team," said Jim Durrett, executive director of the Buckhead CID. "Through his leadership and experience, he will ensure that HUB404 will add accessible public greenspace in Buckhead's commercial core – a necessity which is critical to create a connected, sustainable and walkable community."

Joining as executive director, Rodriguez will have the support from a board with members from a variety of backgrounds in both the public and private sectors, the release stated.

"Bringing this park to life will depend on funding and partnership from a range of public and private sources," said interim chair of the HUB404 Conservancy Court Thomas. "Anthony's experience makes him well suited to secure the support needed for a project of this scale and turn it into a reality."

A graduate of the University of Georgia, Rodriguez has garnered many awards and accolades during his professional career including being named one of the Georgia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce's 50 Most Influential Latinos in Georgia as well as making regular appearances in Atlanta Magazine's Atlanta 500, according to the news release. Rodriguez also led Aurora Theatre to earn Atlanta Magazine'sBest Inclusive Programming honor and Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce's Moxie Award for Outstanding Organization.

Mount Royal Temporarily Closes in Buckhead After Hugh Acheson Departs the Restaurant

After opening Montreal-style steakhouse Mount Royal and rooftop lounge Spaceman at the Hyatt Centric hotel in Buckhead four months ago, chef Hugh Acheson is no longer affiliated with either restaurant.

On Wednesday afternoon, a future patron of Mount Royal alerted Eater to a “change in management” after their reservation for later this week was canceled by the hotel. Another patron provided a voicemail recording from Mount Royal stating that the restaurant is undergoing some “exciting changes” and therefore is closing temporarily for dinner. Their reservation was slated for April 23.

“We can confirm that Hugh is no longer a part of this project at the Hyatt and that Mount Royal and Spaceman should continue to operate as they have been,” a spokesperson for Acheson says when reached for comment. The spokesperson declined to elaborate further on the reason for the split, saying only that the chef is “looking forward to working on future restaurant projects.”

A source with knowledge of the situation indicates the decision to part ways with the hotel came down to “creative differences” between Acheson and hotel management.

With Acheson’s departure from the restaurants, it appears chef Sam Herndon (head of Acheson’s culinary team) is also no longer affiliated with Mount Royal and Spaceman.

“Mount Royal is open for breakfast 7 days a week and we look forward to welcoming guests back in for dinner soon,” Hyatt Centric Buckhead general manager Kristi Cotten says, who declined to provide further details on whether the hotel plans to rebrand the restaurants.

Spaceman remains open on the 15th floor of the hotel for cocktails and food, Thursday through Sunday evenings starting at 5 p.m.

Mount Royal was particularly close to Acheson’s heart. The Canadian-born chef called the steakhouse an ode to his hometown of Ottawa and neighboring city of Montreal. The menu centers on prime cuts of steak paired with French-Canadian dishes like Lyonnaise salad, tourtiere (meat pies), and sour pickles.

In early March, Acheson and Herndon traveled to Romania and Poland for two weeks to assist in coordinating food distribution efforts with World Central Kitchen (WCK) to help feed refugees fleeing from the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

“I can help cook, expedite, and triage a very complex situation,” Acheson told Eater at the time. “I worry about literally half a million people wandering in the cold wondering when they will ever sleep in their beds at home again . . . We can all do things.”

Update, April 13, 6:30 p.m.: This story has been updated with comments from representatives of Hyatt Centric hotel in Buckhead.
