Four Seasons has partnered with Tokyo Tatemono and Hotel Properties Limited (HPL) to open a brand-new Four Seasons hotel in Osaka, Japan.
The hotel will be housed in the One Dojima Project, which began construction on Aug 1, 2020. The building will be approximately 195 meters high with a total floor area of approximately 85,000 square meters, making it one of the largest in Osaka.
The high-rise tower will feature residences by Brillia, a meeting hall that serves as a base for tourism and business, and the Four Seasons Hotel Osaka.
“We are honored to expand our presence in Japan with our long-time partners at HPL and with our new collaborators at Tokyo Tatemono, whose vision for the One Dojima project will create a new luxury lifestyle destination in Osaka,” said John Davison, President and Chief Executive Officer, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “We are proud to be part of the One Dojima project with the upcoming Four Seasons Hotel Osaka, where our guests will soon enjoy the beautiful atmosphere created by local Japanese designers, along with the legendary Four Seasons service that is renowned in Japan and around the world.”
The 175-room Four Seasons Hotel Osaka is being designed by interior designer Gwenael Nicolas of Curiosity, as well as Shinichiro Ogata of Simplicity, and Yasuhiro Koichi of Design Studio Spin. Nikken Sekkei, one of Japan's leading architectural firms, has been appointed to design the entire building. Otani, the master architect of Nikken Sekkei, has created a graceful design that evokes the image of a sail. Takenaka Corporation, which used to be headquartered in this area, has been selected to construct the building.
“We appreciate the opportunity to partner with Tokyo Tatemono, one of Japan’s leading real estate companies, on our investment in the One Dojima Project,” said Ong Beng Seng, Managing Director, Hotel Properties Limited. “We look forward to combining the reputation, strength and network of Tokyo Tatemono and Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, a world-renowned hotel management company, to create an iconic complex development landmark in Osaka - a city that is attracting global attention.”
Four Seasons Hotel Osaka will complement the brand’s existing properties in Japan, including Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Marunouchi, Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Otemachi, Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto, and the upcoming Four Seasons Resort Okinawa.© Travel News Asia
