The Fifth Avenue Hotel
Situated in New York City’s posh NoMad neighborhood, this luxurious hotel (also a member of Leading Hotels of the World) will combine a historic residence designed by storied architecture firm McKim, Mead & White with a new 24-story addition by Perkins Eastman. AD100 designer Martin Brudnizki is behind the interiors, which are inspired by the Gilded Age with a rich color palette and objets d’art. There will be 153 rooms and suites, four chic restaurants and bars, and a ballroom for star-studded events. Opening spring 2022; thefifthavenuehotel.com
The Maybourne Riviera features Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s first restaurant in the South of France
The Maybourne Riviera
The Maybourne Hotel Group (the brand behind Claridge’s, the Connaught, and the Berkeley in London) will debut their first foray into France on the fabled French Riviera. They’ve tapped not one but six designers—André Fu, Bryan O’Sullivan Studio, Marcelo Joulia, Pierre Yovanovitch, Pascal Goujon, and Rigby & Rigby—each of whom will add their distinct style to the project, which includes 69 rooms and suites and a variety of culinary destinations. Jean-Georges Vongerichten will debut his first restaurant in the south of France, and Hiro Sato will add a world class sushi experience, but the big-ticket restaurant is sure to be the one by Mauro Colagreco, whose restaurant Mirazur was named the world’s best restaurant in 2019.
