As part of a global expansion drive, The Address Hotels + Resorts has been actively seeking new and exciting projects across the globe. One of the flagship African locations for this 6-year-old luxury hotel chain will be in Abuja, within the new Centenary City.
The Address, Abuja will offer a combination of residential and hotel spaces designed for the ‘truly discerning’. Spanning across 25 hectares, the location is said to include the best of world-class living, amenities, restaurants and more. The residential aspect of the Address, Abuja will consist of 50 luxury villas featuring 3-6 bed homes available in modern and modern tropical designs.
There will also be 1, 2 and 3 bed serviced apartments spread out across 5 buildings, set in the modern districts of the new city.
The Address Hotels + Resorts was launched by Emaar Hospitality Group in May 2008 with a mandate to become a recognized global luxury lifestyle brand within 10 years. Since its launch, The Address rapidly established itself with five award-wining operational properties in Dubai:
- The Address Downtown Dubai
- The Address Dubai Mall
- The Address Dubai Marina
- The Address Montgomerie Dubai
- The Palace Downtown Dubai
They have already signed management agreements to operate The Address Marassi Golf Resort & Spa in Egypt and The Address Masai Mara (Kenya) and sometime in the near future, Turkey.
It is becoming more obvious that capital forces in the Eastern world will play a large role in Africa’s growth story. China, the Middle East and other parts of Asia are playing active roles within the construction, development and power sector.
The developer of the entire Centenary City project also has ties to the Middle East. Eagle Hills, which develops flagship city destinations, is keen on urban expansion and renewal projects that positively impact business, tourism and ensure sustainable economic growth. Their only other known project aside the Centenary City is the Belgrade Waterfront in Serbia, a smart new mixed used city built around the tallest tower in the region.
