(10 May 2021) Rosewood has signed its ninth hotel in Greater China.
Scheduled to open in 2025, the new-build Rosewood Hangzhou will be located in Wangjiang New City, an emerging hub of innovation, technology and financial services in the heart of Hangzhou.
“We are thrilled to further our presence in China and bring a new level of luxury hospitality to one of its most alluring cities with the addition of Rosewood Hangzhou,” said Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group. “Hangzhou is a prosperous and dynamic city which offers serene natural wonders and rich culture for artistic exploration, as well as a setting for the development of new ideas in business and technology, making it well suited for both leisure and business travelers. The Wangjiang New City development is an exceptional reflection of Hangzhou’s horizons and Rosewood is excited to be a part of the city’s continued growth.”
Spanning 740,000 square meters, the Wangjiang New City development will include the Rosewood Hangzhou, a K11 Art Mall, office buildings and workspaces, luxury residences and cultural attractions.
The hotel will sit in a standalone building totalling 25,000 square meters over 16 floors.
The architecture of the project will be led by Büro Ole Scheeren, with interiors by Shanghai-based Neri&Hu.
