SAN DIEGO—Project and cost consultancy Cumming, based here, is the development manager for the London EDITION hotel, just opened by Marriott International and Ian Schrager Co.
London is the second EDITION hotel to open since the brand’s 2011 Istanbul debut.
Reporting directly to Marriott’s corporate leadership team, Cumming has provided overall corporate program management of the Marriott International-owned EDITION projects and project level development management on the London luxury lifestyle hotel, which occupies the former historic Berners Hotel.
The London EDITION features 173 guestrooms, a Jason Atherton-inspired restaurant, four bars, a special function space, meeting rooms and a modernized lobby that accentuates the building’s original historic character. The hotel is located in central London’s Fitzrovia neighborhood.
The EDITION brand was created by Marriott International in partnership with boutique hotelier Ian Schrager.
Cumming is currently working with three new EDITION hotels with overall corporate program management of the hotels and project level development management being provided on the London and Miami projects, with program-level support being provided on the New York property. All three projects include extensive renovations and conversions of historic properties. The Miami Beach EDITION is replacing the former Seville Hotel, and the New York property will be located in the historic MetLife Clock Tower on Madison Ave. Both hotels are scheduled to come online in 2014.

When you hear all the lodging industry projections for the months and years to come, much of the robust growth is forecast to be the result of the expected influx of travelers from China. In what could only be seen as good news for the industry, that expectation moved a little closer to reality when President Obama signed a visa waiver extension for Chinese travelers earlier this month.
