Corinthia Hotels announces new luxury hotel in Moscow
4 February 2019
IHI plc, owners of the Corinthia Hotels Group, announces a luxury Corinthia Hotel & Residences project in Moscow. IHI is acquiring a minority share in a company being formed with a consortium of investors to acquire a landmark property at 10, Tverskaya, Moscow’s principal avenue leading onto the Kremlin and Red Square. The property has a listed façade, and houses the famous 19th century Filippov Bakery, but permits in hand allow up to 43,000m2 of development behind the retained frontage. The consortium has plans to create a luxury Corinthia Hotel and branded serviced apartments for sale. An element of high-end retail will be featured alongside Tverskaya.
IHI plc has had a presence in Russia since 2002, when the company acquired and later redeveloped five historic properties on the main boulevard in St Petersburg, where the company now owns the Corinthia Hotel St Petersburg, the Nevskij Plaza Retail and Commercial Centre as well as other commercial property.
Corinthia CEO Simon Naudi said: “We are very pleased to announce our second hotel and residences in the Russian Federation. Our Moscow project will consolidate our Brand’s positioning at the top end of the Russian luxury hotel market”.
