This six-floor, 130 room upscale boutique hotel will reflect the eclectic art and music scene found in Athens. The new downtown hotel also includes a 5,500 square feet of meeting space.
In lieu of a traditional hole-digging ceremony in August 2008, the developers decided to have a "greenbreaking" instead, and donated funds to support community initiatives, including Nuci's Space and the Athens Land Trust. The developers of Hotel Indigo Athens are Rialto Property Partners, LLC, which specializes in sustainable development, bringing to market projects that meet LEED criteria and promote responsible building practices.
The latest in “green development”, Hotel Indigo will be Gold LEED- certified, the highest standard in environmentally sustainable construction, and utilizes both exterior and interior materials from within a 500-mile radius . The prestigious LEED certification promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality.
