Douglas Sams reports that the city of Atlanta has released a Request for Qualifications for the development of an upscale hotel to be located next to the domestic terminal of Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

"The hotel is the centerpiece of an effort to spur commercial real estate development around the more than 4,700-acre campus of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. It could also include office buildings and retail space."

Although much of the article is blocked by the Business Chronicle paywall, the RFQ can be found online [pdf] and additional reporting on the hotel and the rest of the rest of the amenities planned for the airport can be found in an article from October.
