The Georgia World Congress Center Authority has unveiled its 2020 Vision plan, which includes renderings for a massive hotel to rise next door to the nearly-complete Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Downtown.

The four-star hotel with 800 to 1,000 rooms would sit on part of the space occupied by the Georgia Dome, which is set for implosion later this year. The hotel would be separated from the new stadium by the Home Depot Backyard, a planned park and tailgating spot.

You can read the Vision 2020 report at this link and see more renderings at Curbed Atlanta.
