US hotel group Standard Hotels is set to open its first Irish property on Dublin’s northside, sometime in 2025.
The group has chosen Dublin Arch (formerly known as the Connolly Quarter) between Connolly Station and Sheriff St for the location of the new hotel, which will have around 200 rooms.
The site is currently being developed by Ballymore as a mixed-use development and will include residences, offices, restaurants and even a community centre.
Dublin was described as a “fitting destination” for its brand by Amber Asher, chief executive of Standard International.
Standard Hotels has signed a Hotel Management Agreement with CBRE.
Dave Murray, director of Ireland Hotels at CBRE said: “This is an ideal partnership between a best-in-class developer and one of the most stylish hotel brands worldwide.
“Situated in a prime location with a superb food and beverage offering, this hotel opening will create something very special for the City of Dublin.”
The trendy hotel chain has hotels in New York, London and Miami; new openings are scheduled for Ibiza, Brussels and Milan in the year ahead.
