The Radisson RED Hotel Johannesburg, Rosebank is set to arrive in South Africa’s largest city in February 2021, bringing the group’s African portfolio to almost 100 hotels.
The Radisson RED Hotel Johannesburg, Rosebank will be located in Oxford Parks, a vibrant mixed-use precinct comprising premium offices, apartments and supporting retail and restaurants, all situated within an exceptionally high-quality, privately managed and walkable public environment.
Andrew McLachlan, Senior Vice President, Development, Sub Sahara Africa, Radisson Hotel Group, said: “We are excited to have signed our second Radisson RED in South Africa and introduce our third brand to Johannesburg, alongside Radisson Blu and Park Inn by Radisson. Following our successful opening of Africa’s first Radisson RED in Cape Town, bringing this next generation RED to Johannesburg will support the rollout of future RED’s across South Africa and the region. Rosebank is one of the fastest growing business precincts in Johannesburg and is regarded as the city’s art district, making it the ideal location for our upscale, lifestyle select-service hotel brand, which presents a playful twist on the conventional. The hotel will be the first internationally branded lifestyle hotel in Johannesburg and our fourth hotel in the city.”
Thinus Crafford, Developer and Oxford Parks’s representative, commented: ” The hotel will be located in the 1st phase of Oxford Parks – a unique, holistic urban space designed to uplift and enhance the community and promote a sense of belonging. The Radisson RED will complete phase 1 of Oxford Parks, consisting of 4 commercial buildings, the Radisson RED hotel and ancillary retail on the ground floor of each of the commercial buildings. Oxford Parks offers you an experience where business, lifestyle and leisure are harmoniously integrated. We are proud to announce that tenants such as BPSA, the Life Healthcare Group, Thebe Investment Corporation, ARUP, Metier, Credo Wealth and Sony have decided to relocate their corporate offices to Oxford Parks. All buildings within Oxford Parks will be designed to meet a minimum 4-Star Green Star rating. In Oxford Parks, sustainable technology becomes a lifestyle and not just a passing trend. We are delighted and honored to welcome to Oxford Parks, both Radisson RED and the investor, RDC Properties Limited, and are confident that soon both will experience and be part of this uniquely compelling urban space”.
The new-build, 222-room Radisson RED Hotel Johannesburg, Rosebank will comprise standard studios and suites in bold designs.
