ATLANTA, May 14, 2024 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it arranged financing for the 218-key Hyatt Centric Buckhead Atlanta in Georgia.

JLL represented the borrower, a joint venture between Songy Highroads LLC and an affiliate of Hyatt Hotels Corporation, in securing the loan from a global bank.
