dc.descriptionAerial view, from the Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel; Peachtree Center is a multi-block area located in the central business district of Atlanta, Georgia. The mixed-use complex, designed by Atlanta architect John Portman, is connected by a network of enclosed pedestrian sky bridges and a rapid transit station that provides access to MARTA. At one time, Peachtree Center included 4,000-room conference atrium hotels (the Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel, Hyatt Regency Atlanta, and Atlanta Marriott Marquis), office towers (including the SunTrust Plaza Tower & SunTrust Plaza Garden Offices, Marquis One & Marquis Two, and the 230 Peachtree Street building among others), AmericasMart, the Inforum, dozens of shops and restaurants, observation decks, athletic facilities, and art museums. Because all the buildings are not currently under the same ownership, the definition of what is now marketed as Peachtree Center has changed from what was originally designed by John Portman & Associates.
