PKF hotelexperts, a member firm of PKF International, supported the hotel developer with a feasibility study and completed the operator search process for the planned Radisson Red Vienna, which will be operated by Radisson Hospitality AB under an international lease agreement.

"We‘ve had the site on the Donaukanal, just next to [Vienna's] popular Tel Aviv Beach, on our radar for several years," said Christian Walter, managing director, PKF hotelexperts. "When the plot eventually became available, we were able to share our enthusiasm with our clients. We believe that Vienna‘s second district is one of the city‘s most vibrant neighborhoods and are very happy to have secured Radisson Red as the perfect match for the project developers."
