Business Overview | Wharf Hotels - Development and Management

Currently, the Group operates 14 Marco Polo hotels in the Asia Pacific region, five of which are owned by the Group.

As an integral part of the Group’s expansion plan in Asia Pacific, there will be a portfolio of 11 owned hotels (including six new hotels in the Mainland) in five years’ time. Conveying an aura of exquisiteness and modishness, these new hotels are poised to offer superb design and impeccable service. At least three of the new hotels are luxury hotels with a splash of modern and chic under Niccolo, a new brand by Marco Polo. These contemporary urban luxury hotels with the most desirable addresses will raise the bar in style, service and hospitability for the group. The first Niccolo hotel will open in Chengdu IFS by mid-2015, thanks to the untapped potential of business and leisure travel across the region.

Marco Polo Changzhou, destined to be an exclusive urban oasis and the city’s prime destination for sophisticated events and weddings, has opened since late August 2014.

Murray Building

Murray Building was acquired by the Group through listed subsidiary Harbour Centre Development Limited for HK$4.4 billion in November 2013. It is a 27-storey majestic building with towering arches and quite possibly the last remaining prime site in Central for a major hotel.

With nearly 50 years of history, this prominent landmark building with intricate design guards the intersection of traffic arteries in Central that run east-west and north-south and commands open green views over Hong Kong Park. It is also well connected to other buildings in the neighbourhood, as well as to the Mass Transit Railway.

The Group will convert this iconic building into a unique, fashionable lifestyle hotel for a total investment of over HK$7 billion. Target opening is scheduled for 2017. Design planning is underway by Foster and Partners.
