Hang Lung Properties (Hang Lung) has signed Hilton on as the hotel management partner of a new-build lifestyle boutique hotel within Center 66, a mixed-use development in Wuxi.
The property will bear the Curio Collection by Hilton flag, and is slated to officially open in 2H2024.
Located in the prime business district in downtown Wuxi, the new hotel will comprise a seven-story main building and an adjacent three-story heritage building, providing a total of 106 guestrooms, a lobby lounge, two restaurants, a bespoke event space, an indoor pool, and a fitness centre.
Jerry Huang, president of development, Hilton, Greater China & Mongolia, said: “Wuxi is one of the birthplaces of the famed Wu culture, and the historical significance of this sought-after destination will be thoughtfully reflected in the hotel’s physical design and distinctly local offerings. When the hotel opens, we warmly welcome guests to rediscover the city of Wuxi with newfound curiosity.”
The Center 66 development was designed as a two-phase project – the first phase, opened to the public in September 2013, comprises a shopping mall and an office tower complex.
Upon completion of the second phase, located to the south of the current complex, Center 66 will be the iconic retail and commercial landmark in Wuxi’s core business district, incorporating a luxury shopping mall and Grade-A office towers with a hotel and serviced residences.
