Arad, famous for the creation of the World Trade Center Memorial, is a partner at Handel Architects LLP in New York and will be overseeing the creative process with a mission to bring a relaxed contemporary style to the property.
Nano Hotels & Resorts will embrace minimalistic design, signature comfort, and cutting edge technology. The properties will feature striking exterior architecture, a 24-hour market, all-day bistro, and nightlife. Design partner Jay Godfrey will lend his creative touches to the decor elements that will set NANO apart from other hotels in the city. In addition, Chef David Laris will provide fresh, innovative menus through a network of up-and-coming culinary talents.
In addition to the New York City location, the brand will also target top-tier urban and resort locations throughout China, South East Asia, and the Middle East, with plans to open in major cities around the world including Miami, Shanghai, and Dubai. The Cachet Hotel Group and G-Holdings development plan includes both investment in real estate and straight management contracts. The partners are currently seeking to acquire land and build mixed-use Nano projects in gateway cities and resort markets around the world. In addition, they are also seeking to work with established developers and may invest equity into mixed-use projects that feature a Nano Hotel & Residence.
