LONDON—Jumeirah Group has signed a management agreement with GT Land Holdings to operate 169 luxury serviced residences, in addition to the 207-room luxury Jumeirah Guangzhou Hotel, which is already nearing completion.
The agreement between GT Land Holdings Limited and Jumeirah Group was signed at a ceremony held at Burj Al Arab and attended by Su Meng, chairman of GT Land, and Gerald Lawless, president and group CEO of Jumeirah Group.
Set in the center of New Pearl City Tian He District, East Guangzhou, the apartment and hotel complex is located in a rapidly growing commercial center and upscale hotel district. The area has transport links to reach the Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport and Pearl River Delta within 30 minutes.
