500 New Jobs For Roswell

McKesson Corporation, a global leader in healthcare supply chain management solutions, retail pharmacy, and healthcare information technology, will be moving its Atlanta Hub to Roswell, Georgia in 2019. This move will relocate existing employees from the company’s current office in Alpharetta bringing more than 500 high-quality jobs to the city of Roswell, with an anticipated move-in date in the summer of 2019. With this move, McKesson will become a Top 5 company in Roswell by number of employees.

New Hotels Coming Soon

Since 2017, four hotel projects—one boutique and three business class— have been announced for Roswell. Home 2 Suites by Hilton and Springhill Suites by Marriott were announced in July 2017, Element by Westin was announced in March 2018, and Canton Place Development announced the expansion of its boutique hotel and mixed-use project in September 2018. So, where do these hotel projects currently stand since the news broke for each? We’d like to provide you with a quick project update for all four hotels. Home 2 Suites and Springhill Suites, which are both located off Westside Parkway, broke ground in 2018 and are projected to finish construction by late 2019, early 2020. Combined, these two projects will bring 196 rooms to the city for business travelers. Element by Westin, located between Home 2 Suites and Springhill Suites, has received its land disturbance permit (LPD) and broke ground by the end of 2018. Element will have 91 rooms, an outdoor pool, restaurant, full-service bar, and a 250+ capacity meeting space. Once complete, these three business class hotels will bring an estimated 150+ new jobs and approximately $39 million in capital investment to Roswell, along with an estimated $598,000+ in annual revenue generation for the city. Canton Place Development’s Boutique Hotel and mixed-use development, which is planned to open in Roswell’s Historic District, will include 125 rooms and a variety of unique, curated retail and restaurant space. This $88.2 million project is hoping to break ground by the end of 2018, with plans to be completed by the end of 2020.
