Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced that a Hyatt affiliate has entered into management agreement with R&F UK for a new Hyatt-branded hotel in London. The 203-room Park Hyatt London River Thames is expected to open in 2022 and will be located within R&F UK’s Nine Elms development on the south bank of the river.
R&F UK has assembled a design team for the development and new hotel, including Skidmore Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM), Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF), and Allies and Morrison, with landscape architects Gillespies leading on the Linear Park and Super Potato curating interior design within the development.
The Park Hyatt hotel will be part of a new series of developments by R&F UK, consisting of 18 buildings, which will include 2,300 apartments, more than 120,000 square feet of commercial space, and numerous shops and restaurants, including One Thames City, an exclusive new riverside development comprising premium residences, hotels, shops, park, and restaurants. Construction of the Nine Elms development is well underway, and the schemes are expected to take shape over the next two years.
