by | 30 Sep 2022 | Hotel Projects, Projects

TOPHOTELPROJECTS researchers have had a busy September, adding nearly 150 entries to the database over the last few weeks.

Here we profile several of the most important hotel additions which have been announced in this month.

 

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.

The property’s aim is to be rooted in the community as a new destination where tourists and local residents gather when it opens in Q4 2023.

 

Moon World Dubai

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 $5 bn Moon World Dubai resort would feature a massive 4,000 luxury resort suites developed to a five star standard, plus a spa and wellness section, a hotel lobby, a nightclub, lounge and a convention centre.

The developer is also promising an onsite ‘lunar colony’, an authentic lunar surface spanning 10 acres, to attract those looking to explore the possibility of space tourism. Moon World Resorts has also teased an in-house ‘moon shuttle’.

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.
