Moxy Hotel Planned for York
The site is located in the Hungate area of York, adjacent to Hiscox�s new �19m office development � its largest office outside of London, employing up to 500 people. With outline planning consent already in place for a hotel development next to the Hiscox office, Vastint Hospitality is seeking to develop a purpose-built, 120 bedroom Moxy Hotel on the site.
Moxy Hotels is Marriott International�s new economy hotel brand created to shake up the hotel industry with fresh attitude and modern flair. Designed for travellers looking for something fun, stylish and a bit edgy, Moxy�s buzzy lobby, tech-savvy guest rooms and intuitive service offers a refreshing alternative to traditional and often uninspiring economy hotels.
Shaun Skidmore, Senior Director at CBRE comments; �The creation of Hiscox�s landmark new offices has drawn a significant amount of attention to the Hungate area of York and this strategically positioned site holds clear potential for the creation of a new hotel to further complement the City�s leisure provision. A Moxy hotel would be a superb and unique addition to the York hotel scene, offering a fresh and contemporary experience for the younger end of the market. We are pleased to have concluded this deal and look forward to following the site�s progress.�
Acting on behalf of Hiscox, CBRE�s Specialist Markets team has sold a prime hotel development site in York to Vastint Hospitality.Wednesday, September 30, 2015"
