Paris April 30 2014 – Radisson Hotel Group, in partnership with Redevco, is delighted to announce the arrival of its lifestyle brand Radisson Collection in the heart of Paris, at 126 Rivoli.

The hotel will open its doors to the public in early 2027, at 126 Rivoli, a prestigious district where tourists and Parisians converge. The hotel will comprise 57 rooms, as well as a rooftop garden open to the public and a listed 12th-century medieval crypt operated by the hotel. Following a call for tenders launched by Redevco, this signing comes just a few months after the announcement of the launch of refurbishment work on the Haussmann-style building. Named ‘BPM’ (Beats Per Minute), this large-scale project, which includes the future Radisson Collection, is committed to a mixed-use approach and compliance with CSR standards (Net Zero Carbon objectives by 2040, BREEAM RFO and In Use Excellent certification).

The project totals more than 13,000 m2 and includes hotels, shops, offices, urban logistics, restaurants, and a community centre. Developed by Redevco and designed by Franklin Azzi Architecture, the project encourages a mixed-use approach and porosity between the different uses on the site and aims for social and environmental excellence.

Radisson Collection has developed as a range of iconic establishments in unique locations, comprising both renowned heritage hotels and new properties. The iconic location of the ‘BPM’ project was therefore an obvious choice for Radisson Collection in Paris. With more than 13,000 m2 spread over 8 floors, the project is designed to ensure fluidity between the different activities and uses on the site and aims for social and environmental excellence. The ground floor and 1st floor will offer 3,000 m2 of retail space, while the 2nd to 4th floors will house 4,000 m2 of office and coworking space. 

The 57-room Radisson Collection hotel will span the 5th to 7th floors. The 8th floor will be enhanced by a planted rooftop. This will offer a unique 360-degree view of the City of Light and its Parisian monuments, including the Eiffel Tower, Montmartre, and Notre-Dame.

Federico J. González, Executive Vice President of Radisson Hotel Group, said: ‘We are delighted that Radisson Collection is coming to Paris with this iconic hotel. This project will strengthen the position of our brand both nationally and internationally. This project will not only enrich the Radisson Collection brand offering globally, but also in France, where we currently have 23 hotels in operation and under development. With a focus on bespoke design, rich heritage and exceptional experiences, the Radisson Collection hotel in historic 126 Rivoli is sure to be an exceptional destination for local and international guests…’

‘The Redevco teams and I are delighted with this long-term partnership with the Radisson Hotel Group. The implementation of the Radisson Collection hotel concept, tailor-made to suit the unique character of our ‘BPM’ operation at 126 Rivoli, demonstrates our strategic commitment to transforming all our assets into vibrant and innovative living spaces. Thanks to the high social and environmental standards we have set for this refurbishment and its new uses, Redevco is once again confirming its role as a major player in the sustainable and positive reinvention of the city of the future,’ comments Thierry Cahierre, Head of Redevco France.
