Jumeirah Group, the global hotel company and a member of Dubai Holding, has signed a management agreement with GT Land Holdings to operate 169 luxury serviced residences, in addition to the 207-room luxury Jumeirah Guangzhou Hotel, which is already nearing completion.
The agreement between GT Land Holdings Limited and Jumeirah Group was signed at a ceremony held at Burj Al Arab and attended by Su Meng, chairman, GT Land, and Gerald Lawless, group chief executive of Jumeirah Group.
Set in a prime location on the intersection of Hua Cheng Avenue and in the centre of New Pearl City Tian He District, East Guangzhou, the apartment and hotel complex is located in a rapidly growing commercial centre and upscale hotel district.

The 169 serviced residences will be located in a separate low-rise West Tower and are scheduled to open in 2015.
