Oetker Collection to open new hotels in Sao Paulo and New York
With an exceptional location in the heart of the economic capital of Brazil – São Paulo, Palácio Tangará will open its doors in the spring of 2017. Built in the surroundings of the highly regarded Burle Marx Park, whose gardens were designed by Roberto Burle Marx, the hotel will offer 141 spacious guestrooms – including 55 suites – all with beautiful views overlooking the park.
The interior design has been entrusted to leading Brazilian interior designers William Simonato and Patricia Anastassiadis who have created a truly bespoke design concept for each space. An acclaimed chef will drive the hotel’s dining experiences and there will be a signature restaurant, chef’s table, a bar, a wine cellar, a lobby and lounge bar, all with outdoor terraces.
Palácio Tangará is owned by an affiliate of a United States-based real estate investment management company. In the true spirit of the country, the Tangará name comes from the paradise Tanager of Amazonia, (Tangara Chilensis) a brilliantly multicolored songbird.
In Manhattan, Oetker Collection will open a ‘New York Masterpiece’ in the spring of 2018. Minutes from Central Park, the hotel will be located in the heart of the city, at 550 Madison Avenue, between 55th and 56th Street. Surrounded by the city’s best boutiques and most admired museums the development is located in the former Sony Tower, originally built as the headquarter of AT&T back in 1984. The 43-storey postmodern skyscraper was created by the famous Philip Johnson and is an iconic New York landmark.
The hotel will feature 170 rooms including 60 suites set across eight floors. There will be a cozy yet stylish bar with a beautiful lounge area, a gourmet restaurant, a spa, a fitness centre and a 25 meter pool.
Located above the hotel, from floors 21 to 43, the owning company of the building, the New Yorker Chetrit Group will create a total of 115 luxury apartments to be sold to highly influential clientele from now onwards. These apartments are decorated by world famous designer Robert Stern and will be serviced by Oetker Collection as well.
