Planners OK Fairfield Inn and Suites for Wisdom Rd.

A conceptual site plan for the new Fairfield Inn and Suites hotel was approved Oct. 8 by the Peachtree City Planning Commission.

The three-story hotel will be behind the Wisdom Pointe retail center that fronts directly on Ga. Highway 74. At 42,000 sq. ft. the building will have 82 guest rooms and suites.

Because of a required 75-foot buffer between the hotel and the Woodsmill Apartments, there is no room to locate a second hotel on the 2.8-acre site as originally planned by the developer.

The plan required a rezoning for the property to switch from general commercial to a limited use commercial zoning. Doing so allowed the building’s final height to eclipse the 35-foot limit on general commercial property; the final height of the structure will reach 43 feet.

The rezoning was approved by the city council with several conditions, one of which is that all guest rooms be accessible by internal hallways only. Also one condition requires management to be on-site 24 hours a day.

The site includes 82 parking spaces with another 10 spaces just for golf carts, as the hotel plans to offer golf carts to its guests. There is also a separate area for bus parking on the site plan.
