“This award once again reaffirms The One at JVC’s growing reputation as one of the most exciting hotels currently under development in Dubai,” Danny Lubert, co-founded and joint chairman of The First Group, said. “We are confident The One at JVC will set new benchmarks for service and value in the upper mid-scale hospitality sector when it opens in 2018.”
The project, located in Dubai’s JVC precinct, will stand 40 stories tall and was designed by the the architectural firm NORR Group. The Wyndham Hotel Group will manage the complex when it opens in late 2018.
“You always hope to win, and the competition in this category was tremendous, with [many] great projects," Yahya Jan, president and design director of NORR Group, said. "With [The One at JVC], we wanted to explore the tower – to break it up [in a design sense] – and The First Group was great and open to experimenting and breaking the norms."
The One was also named "Hotel of the Future" at the id Design Awards in December.
