It was announced last week that Atlanta's 73-story, 1,068-room Westin Peachtree Plaza hotel, whose glass exterior was damaged by a tornado in March 2008, will have all 6,350 windows replaced by Skansa USA Building. The $22 million project is scheduled for completion toward the end of next year. To help expedite the effort, one of the hotel's F&B outlets, the top-floor Sun Dial Restaurant Bar & View, will be closed from Sept. 29 until late December. The Westin Peachtree Plaza has 80,000 square feet of meeting space.
