InterContinental Nanjing, new world's tallest hotel?

InterContinental Hotels Group to Manage World’s Tallest Hotel in Nanjing

InterContinental Hotels Group has signed four new management contracts with Shanghai Greenland Group, including an InterContinental hotel in Nanjing which will be the world’s tallest hotel.

They've also signed for one Holiday Inn property in Xi’an and two Express by Holiday Inn hotels in Shanghai, representing a total of more than 1,400 rooms.
Andrew Cosslett, chief executive, InterContinental Hotels Group, stated, “This latest signing with Greenland Group comes hot on the heels of our landmark six-hotel signing in Sichuan with the Chengdu International Exhibition & Convention Group. These back-to-back multiple-property deals with China’s leading property developers clearly illustrate our owners’ and partners’ trust and confidence in us and cement our position as the leading international hotel company in China. We are extremely optimistic about the outlook for the region.”

Added Edmond Ip, InterContinental Hotels Group’s chief operating officer for North Asia, “This is an exciting time for us. We are sustaining strong growth in China and have been given the opportunity to work with some of the largest and most respected partners in the country. Shanghai Greenland Group is among the top three real estate conglomerates in China and our partnership with them, on multiple properties and hotel brands, is a great honour that reflects their confidence in our ability to deliver exceptional business results.”

Zhang Yu Liang, president, Shanghai Greenland Group, said: “The Greenland Group is in the midst of a nation-wide expansion and we have great confidence in our cooperation with the InterContinental Hotels Group. Their understanding of the Chinese market, consistently strong growth and broad portfolio of brands catering to different market segments makes them the ideal hotel partner for our newest and most impressive developments.”

The scheduled openings will comprise the following hotels:

In Nanjing, the gateway to southeastern China and a historic city that is today one of the fastest-developing in Asia Pacific:

- InterContinental Nanjing, a 450-room luxury hotel located within the proposed Nanjing International Financial Centre, which will be the world’s tallest hotel. The hotel will offer top-notch conference and business facilities, three food and beverage outlets, spa and pool. Scheduled to open in 2010.

In Xi’an, a prosperous and rapidly growing city that is home to the famous Terracotta Warriors:

- Holiday Inn Greenland Xi’an, a 380-room mid-scale hotel located in the proposed RMB 3 billion (US$ 361 million) Xi’an Hi-tech Development Zone, approximately five kilometres from the city centre. Facilities will include extensive meeting facilities, a range of food and beverage outlets, health club and pool. Scheduled to open in 2007.

In Putuo and Minghang, two of Shanghai’s newest industrial and commercial districts, which attract international companies in the high-tech, light industrial and logistics sectors:

- Express by Holiday Inn Putuo Shanghai, a 230-room convenience-sector hotel located close to the express city train station and a major shopping mall. Scheduled to open in late 2006.

- Express by Holiday Inn Minghang Shanghai, a 350-room convenience-sector hotel in the newly-developed Minghang residential district west of Shanghai. Scheduled to open in early 2007.

Since embarking on its nation-wide strategy in 2001, Shanghai Greenland Group has developed successful properties in numerous cities across China, including Nanchang, Hefei, Changchun, Nanjing, Chengdu, and Xi’an. Headquartered in Shanghai, the Group has received the coveted “A” rating from the Ministry of Construction and is widely regarded as a leader in real estate market research, design and development.

InterContinental Develops Tallest Hotel

April 16, 2006
By Amanda Marsh, Staff Writer




Towering more than 1,400 feet above Nanjing, China, the InterContinental Nanjing is poised to become the world's tallest hotel at its 2009 completion.

The 66-story, 450-room luxury hotel is further reinforcing InterContinental Hotels Group's position in China.
In February alone, the company inked management contracts for a total of 10 hotels there. Four of the hotels were signed with Shanghai Greenland Group and will be located in Nanjing, Xi'an and Shanghai, including InterContinental Nanjing. The other six were signed with Chengdu International Exhibition & Convention Group and will be located in Sichuan. The hotels will include InterContinental brands Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express, and will add 6,000 rooms to the hotel group's China portfolio of 17,439 rooms in 51 hotels, which includes the Crowne Plaza brand. The company expects the portfolio to grow to 125 by 2008.

Several other United States-based companies have also been active in the China hotel market: Starwood Hotels & Resorts recently signed for a Sheraton in Guangzhou and a Westin in Beijing, and Hilton Hotel Corp. is planning hotels in Macau.

Steven Liu, director of research and advisory services for Cushman & Wakefield Asia Pacific Inc., said that there will be many factors positively affecting the hotel industry in China this year, including a robust demand for offices, China's World Trade Organization commitments, the approval for more direct flights between China and other countries and an increase of exhibitions and conferences in the country.

But one of the largest factors that will affect the hotel industry in the long run is China increasing its road infrastructure from its existing 1.2 million miles to 2 million miles by 2020. The country also has 19,000 miles of highways, with an annual growth of 20 percent over the past 10 years, Liu said. "Holiday Inn grew by the freeway system in America," noted Andrew Cosslett, InterContinental's CEO. The company foresees a similar future in China.

I'd like to see a bigger render... This one looks nice, but it's way too small.

Looks like an awesome tower.
I would guess the Xi'an institutions are going to be more aimed at tourist visitors, and the Nanjing hotel will be business/convention facilities.

Great news! Nanjing deserves it.

And for those who doesn't know it, the tower is SOM's work, and was planned to be between 300m and 456m tall.

Btw, this tower reminds me of Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago.

Hmmm... It looks monumental, but still I wouldn't call it amazing Let's give it a chance and wait for more renders. Looks very nice though.

I wish they'd come up with a different name for the building. How many WTC/IFC, etc are there?
