Signa signs new Andaz for Vienna

Andaz Am Belvedere Vienna

Signa and an affiliate of Hyatt Hotels Corporation have announced a 50:50 joint venture for the development of Andaz Am Belvedere Vienna. 

The hotel will be located opposite the 21er Haus (formerly the Museum of Modern Art) and Vienna’s Schweizergarten, next to the Belvedere Palace. The project, which is slated to open in early 2019, will be led by Pritzker Prize-winner Renzo Piano as architect, and the hotel’s interiors will be designed by Claudio Carbone and Gabriel Kacerovsky.

Following the opening of Park Hyatt Vienna, Andaz Am Belvedere Vienna will be the second collaboration between SIGNA and Hyatt.

Andaz Am Belvedere will be located in the new Quartier Belvedere, a part of the city that includes shopping options, green spaces, cultural attractions and sports facilities. It will be a five-minute walk from the new Vienna Central Station and will have links to both the public and private transport system. “This is an incredibly important development for Vienna, with the Belvedere Quarter set to become a sought-after destination in the city,” Peter Norman, SVP of acquisitions and development for Hyatt – Europe, Africa and Middle East, said in a statement. 

The hotel's design will be inspired by the city’s art and architecture. Taking its cue from Prince Eugene of Savoy, one of the leading developers and art collectors of his time and the man behind the Belvedere Palace, Andaz Am Belvedere will  have contemporary local art and design.

The 300-room Andaz Am Belvedere Vienna will be comprised of two separate buildings connected by interwoven bridges, with a shared lounge on the ground floor.
