Luxury hotel on Nevsky Prospect to open in three years
The hotel company Jumeirah Group, a member of Dubai Holding, has signed a management agreement to manage a luxury hotel on Nevsky Prospect in St Petersburg, Russia. The hotel is under development and is expected to open within the next three years.
The hotel will be developed within the structure of Wavelberg House, “a building of national cultural importance” built in 1912, which stands on the corner of Nevsky Prospect and Malaya Morskaya Street. It is one of the most exclusive addresses in the city, close to the Hermitage. The agreement was signed with IFG Basis Project LLC.
The interior design by HBA London, also known as The Gallery, part of the international Hirsch Bedner Associates umbrella, aims to preserve many of the original features including its distinctive façade and marble-floored hall.
When completed the hotel “will consist of 74 rooms, including 18 suites, three bars and restaurants, meeting facilities, a spa and rooftop hydrotherapy pool and prestige retail space fronting onto Nevsky Prospect,” Jumeirah Group said in a statement.
Jumeirah Group currently operates 22 luxury hotels and serviced apartments including 11 in the Gulf region, six in Europe and five in Asia. A further 15 hotels are now under development.
