Germany: Nobu Hospitality will open a hotel and restaurant within the Elbtower, a 245m mixed-use project by SIGNA Real Estate.
The 191-room hotel and 200-seat restaurant will offer views of the River Elbe. It will also feature a fitness and wellness facility, event space for corporate and social gatherings, an outdoor terrace, and a private member’s club with an exclusive lounge and F&B offering.
Comprising 64 stories, the Elbtower is designed by architectural firm David Chipperfield Architects. IN addition to the Nobu hotel and restaurant, the project will feature office space, co-working spaces, retail shops and restaurants.
“We are very happy to be working with SIGNA in developing the Nobu Hotel in the great city of Hamburg,” said Robert De Niro and Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, founders of Nobu Hospitality.
Trevor Horwell, CEO of Nobu Hospitality, added: “We are extremely honoured and excited to be working with SIGNA on this unique project. This is the first project in this growing partnership, and we are exploring other destinations with SIGNA. Hamburg is an economic powerhouse in Germany and is an exciting destination for travellers whether for business or pleasure and perfectly fits with our global clientele. The Elbtower itself is a very special project planned as Hamburg’s world class dynamic lifestyle destination with our Nobu Hotel and Restaurant sitting as its core.”
SIGNA Group has been developing and managing real estate projects in Germany and Austria for over 20 years. Its portfolio includes the Park Hyatt Vienna hotel, the KaDeWe and the Upper West Tower by the Gedächtniskirche in Berlin, and the Oberpollinger and the Karstadt development project near Munich’s central train station, among others.
Timo Herzberg, CEO at SIGNA Real Estate Germany, said: “The partnership with Nobu Hospitality in the launch of the Nobu Hotel and Restaurant Hamburg underscores the compelling Elbtower development as Northern Germany’s tallest skyscraper. Hamburg as a destination fits seamlessly within the Nobu Hotel and Restaurant collection and will be embraced by our prestigious office tenants in the Elbtower as the most exclusive destination in Hamburg.”
