Radisson Hotel Group has announced plans for a Stuggart property under its Radisson Blu brand.

The 168-room hotel will be housed within the forthcoming Porsche Design Tower, which will also feature an adjacent building housing a new Porsche Centre with showroom, gallery and workshop.

The Radisson Blu Hotel at Porsche Design Tower Stuttgart will occupy floors nine to 23 of the tower, and will offer 550sqm of meeting and events space across ten rooms, as well as a 10th floor restaurant and bar with views overlooking the city, two rooftop terraces, and a fitness centre and sauna.

According to a press release from Porsche (released in December 2018), the group said it “could move into its new home at the end of 2021”, although the tower is not expected to be completed until a year later.

Stuttgart-based Porsche opened its first Design Tower in Miami in 2017, and a residential tower is also under development in Frankfurt.

Commenting on the news Elie Younes, executive vice president and chief development officer, Radisson Hotel Group, said:

“This project represents everything Radisson Blu associates with and further cements our position as the largest upper upscale brand in Europe. The timeless architecture of the 90-metre Porsche Design Tower Stuttgart is the ideal locale for our guests to stay.

“We are excited about the cooperation between Radisson Hotel Group and the projects developer and investor, Bülow AG and Porsche Design, and thank them for their trust.”
