Wins continue at Forsyth mixed-use project Halcyon as hotel deal inked

Forsyth County’s sprawling mixed-use development Halcyon got a big boost this week with the announcement of a hotel at the site.

A 154-room Embassy Suites, complete with ballrooms and meeting spaces, will be built in the heart of the 135-acre project.

According to a press release, the hotel will also feature a premier fitness area with an indoor pool, saunas and yoga studio, and an extensive bar and atrium.

The development, which was unveiled in 2015, will boast a food hall, boutique retail, offices, and ultra-swank residences. The first phase broke ground in 2016, but it’ll be years before the entire development is built out.

Eventually, plans call for more more than 700 residential units, Forsyth’s first dine-in movie theater (CMX), and 50 acres of greenspace. The development, located along McFarland Road at Ga. Highway 400, is 30 miles north of downtown Atlanta.

Construction on the hotel will begin soon, and will carry through the year, officials said.
