Rosewood bags San Francisco hotel project
F4 Transbay Partners has chosen Rosewood Hotels & Resorts to manage a new ultra-luxury scheme on the West Coast, featuring 180 rooms and suites designed by Joyce Wang Studio.
Rosewood Hotels & Resorts is embarking on this exciting development in partnership with F4 Transbay Partners, a joint venture between Hines, Urban Pacific and the real estate business of Goldman Sachs Asset Management.
An inspiring setting
Having been selected to manage a new ultra-luxury hotel in the Transbay District, Rosewood has revealed details of its plans for the site.
“As one of the most dynamic and innovative cities in North America, San Francisco offers an eclectic mix of culture, cuisine, art, technology and adventure, and is an ideal destination for the Rosewood brand,” said Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group. “We are thrilled to be a part of this revolutionary new development and look forward to providing our affluential explorers and San Franciscans alike with a stylish and refined new icon to enjoy for years to come.”
Douglas Metzler, CEO West Region for Hines, added: “Rosewood is an ideal partner for this project and will create a one-of-a-kind destination for those who call the Bay Area home, as well as those who travel there for business and pleasure. The Rosewood collection represents the pinnacle of luxury hotels, inspired by the culture, history and geography of each locale, and we are thrilled to bring their unique vision to this iconic development in the Transbay District.”
Luxury lifestyle and elevated design
With its prime Transbay District location, this property will offer unparalleled access to a number of landmarks and attractions, as well as the neighbourhoods that San Francisco is celebrated for, including the 5.4-acre Salesforce Park.
Rosewood San Francisco will span 15 floors of a 61-storey, 800 ft building designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects. This is expected to be the last of greater downtown San Francisco’s skyscraper developments for the foreseeable future – and one of just three projects with direct connection to Salesforce Park via a pedestrian skybridge.
The tower will also house residences, office and retail space, including an extensive pedestrian area.
