Hotel Indigo, Athens' newest upscale hotel, is now under construction. Developer Barry Rutherford sent us a really cool aerial photo of the hotel site. The top left corner and top center of the photo is the Rialto Club, a lounge and music venue. The hotel will be built along the left hand side of the photo (Strong St). What you see in this particular photo is mostly the music venue (columns), and the bar/lounge along College Avenue. The large crane you see in the middle of the photo is actually sitting inside the future covered parking garage. There will be a parking deck above that as well. They begin going vertical with floors in mid January and still expect to be done by August! I'll post the progress as Barry sends new images.
