Gwinnett County Commissioners have approved a ground lease agreement that allows the county’s development arm to work with North Carolina-based Concord Sugarloaf LLC to build a Marriott hotel atGwinnett Center.

The $70 million hotel will be the center’s headquarters hotel, meaning it will serve as the base of operations for organizers of large conventions and conferences that require multiple meeting locations, reportsGwinnett Daily Post.

The lease agreement, approved Tuesday, moves the county’s goal of having a headquarters hotel at the Gwinnett Center one step closer, the paper says.

Concord must still design the hotel, which could be a 12-story tower, before ground can be broken, the paper adds.
