Heren2 and Cycas Hospitality Celebrate Topping Out of Dual-Branded Marriott in Amsterdam
November 8, 2016 12:02pm
Developer Heren2 and operator Cycas Hospitality have celebrated the topping out of two new Marriott International hotels on the Danzigerkade in the Houthaven’s area of Amsterdam, a top spot for hotel investment.
This contemporary building, designed by architects ZZDP, is being built in collaboration with investment developer Heren2, Cycas Hospitality and Marriott International. It is expected that the two hotels, forming a dual-branded hotel project in one building, will open in autumn 2017.
The hotels overlook the IJ and the western port and the interiors have been designed by Atelier Floor in collaboration with architects Koning Ellis. The hotel’s gym, complete with swimming pool, will be operated by The Athletic Club.
Eduard Elias, Managing Partner of Cycas Hospitality said: "This marks a major milestone in the progress of construction and for the growth of Cycas with our first extended-stay hotel concept for the Netherlands. According to new research from Deloitte, London has been replaced by Amsterdam as Europe’s most attractive hotel investment destination. We see great potential in the Houthaven’s area and both hotels will be attractive to the business and leisure traveller, uniquely offering guests a fantastic level of choice in one destination.”
Both the Moxy (120 guest-rooms) and the Residence Inn (60 guest-rooms) will be a great asset, not only to the City but also to area of the Houthaven - a state-of-the-art cultural and creative neighbourhood. The extended-stay character of the Residence Inn is a first for Amsterdam; guests are welcome to stay for a longer period. Moxy is the trendy hotel brand of Marriott International – a bold hotel concept that focuses on Generation X and Y.
This successful build sees Heren2 acts as investment developer and contractor. Heren2 focuses on sustainable development on the banks of the IJ Amsterdam. They involved the English-Dutch hotel management organisation Cycas Hospitality, a reliable and highly experienced company, that has recognised the potential of the Houthavens area from the start. Cycas Hospitality has a long term rental agreement with Heren2 to manage and develop the hotels.
Cycas Hospitality has also recently agreed heads of terms together with Slough Urban Renewal (SUR) for two new Marriott International hotels - Moxy and Residence Inn – in Slough.
