Looking down Curtain Road in Shoreditch
The full-service urban resort will open on 45 Curtain Road in Shoreditch and is expected to break ground in the spring with an opening happening sometime next year. The hotel will have 120 guest rooms, seven luxury suites, a restaurant, a bi-level bar, a 24-hour fitness center, over 6,000-sq.ft. of meeting and event space, and in typical Gansevoort fashion, a bi-level bar and a rooftop swimming pool.
The hotel will also feature something called a Tech Incubator. We're working on the details of what exactly this involves but given that the hotel is opening in the "Tech City" area of Shoreditch, London's own version of Sillicon Valley that's supported by the government, we hope that the incubator comes with lots of cool technology for guests to see and use. The hotel will also pay homage to the district with designs inspired by the local street art scene.
And it wouldn't be a Gansevoort without regular parties. London's weather might not accommodate weekly pool parties but we expect the Gansevoort to try.
Stay tuned for more details on the property later this week!
