Four Seasons had confirmed plans to open Four Seasons Hotel São Paulo at Nações Unidas in 2017, with Private Residences to follow.
Through the partnership between Iron House Real Estate and Tamweelview European Holdings, the 254-room Hotel and 84 Private Residences will be the group’s first foray into Brazil.
The luxury Hotel and Private Residences will be located at an 82,000 square metre development with lush green spaces in the southern part of São Paulo known as Parque da Cidade, one of the fastest developing areas in the city.
The focal part of the project will be a modern and elegant 29-story tower with 16 floors occupied by the hotel and 13 floors for the residential units.
Commenting on the project, Iron House chief executive Ruy Rego said: “Four Seasons was one of the pioneers of the concept of a luxury hotel with branded residences and this model is now present in key cities worldwide.
“We, at Iron House, together with our investment partner, are proud to be bringing Four Seasons to Brazil, and the city of São Paulo is the right place for such a landmark project, the first of its kind in Brazil.”
“Having a presence in Brazil is essential as we explore growth opportunities across Latin America,” said Allen Smith, president, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.
“Brazil is not only a popular destination for luxury travellers, but Brazilian outbound travellers represent a significant number of Four Seasons guests around the world.
“Soon our Brazilian guests familiar with Four Seasons properties internationally will have an opportunity to experience Four Seasons at home.”
