Trunk Hotel Yoyogi Park
Japanese hotel brand Trunk is planning a luxury boutique hotel in the Okushibu area of Tokyo’s Shibuya district.
Trunk Hotel Yoyogi Park will feature 30 rooms and suites, and the standout feature will be a rooftop pool and bar located on the top floor, overlooking Yoyogi Park, the largest in central Tokyo.

Canadian company, Moon World Resorts Inc, has proposed a spectacular 735-ft high moon-shaped structure to house a luxury-space themed resort in Dubai.

The 251-room 1 Hotel Austin will be housed in a 74-storey mixed-use high-rise called Waterline in downtown Austin that will become the tallest tower in Texas when it opens in late 2026. The hotel is the first Texas location for the global hospitality company SH Hotel Resorts’ sustainability-focused 1 Hotels brand.
The building’s ground floor will feature 24,000 sq ft of publicly accessible retail and restaurant space, while 1 Hotel Austin will occupy the next 13 floors with a ballroom and meeting spaces on the 14th floor and a rooftop pool with food and beverage service on the 16th floor.
Development partners Lincoln Property Company and Kairoi Residential have already broken ground on the tower, with the Public Sector Pension Investment Board, one of Canada’s largest pension investment managers, as the main equity partner in this major project.
