SCG America and F&T Group have announced that Marriott’s Renaissance Hotels has been selected as the brand flag for the 208-key hotel within Tangram, their 1.2-million-square-foot, mixed-use development that seamlessly blends where people live, work and play as the new epicenter of Flushing, Queens. Currently under construction and scheduled to open in early 2020, the nine-story Renaissance New York Flushing Hotel at Tangram will offer global travelers and local residents an unexpected lens on this vibrant neighborhood. The Renaissance New York Flushing Hotel at Tangram will be the brand’s first hotel in Queens and, as one of the few 4-star hotels in the borough, will introduce a truly unique experience through unexpected design, engaging brand navigators and entertaining evening bar rituals.
“Our goal from day one was to build the best hotel for the world-class destination we are creating at Tangram. Renaissance Hotels is an impressive global lifestyle brand and could not have been a better fit for us,” stated Winfred Zhang, president and CEO of SCG America. “We are excited to work with Renaissance Hotels to bring their premium hospitality platform to Flushing, further distinguishing the area as a New York City destination.”
The hotel was designed by Margulies Hoelzli Architecture with interiors by Wilson Associates. A distinctive feature of the hotel will be its arrival experience , beginning at the porte-cochere on 37th Avenue where guests are whisked up to a top floor lobby spanning the entire floor and enveloped in panoramic views of Flushing Bay and the Manhattan skyline. Guests will also discover an array of spaces to dine, relax and socialize at a signature restaurant, two bars, a club lounge and an expansive 3,500 SF outdoor terrace. In addition to a 60’ indoor pool, a vitality pool, and a fitness center with wellness amenities like saunas, steam showers and a salt room, hotel guests will also enjoy the convenience of having all of Tangram right at their fingertips. With direct indoor passage to the retail mall from the hotel, visitors need not step outside to find the best food, beverage and entertainment in Flushing. Tangram’s retail component features 275,000 SF of cutting-edge retail with a skylight; themed restaurants; a 24,000-square-foot food hall and beer garden; a variety of entertainment options including a state-of-the-art 4DX movie theater from Regal Cinemas; 324 luxury residences across two towers; and a 12-story commercial tower with 48 office condominium units.
“We are thrilled to bring our Renaissance brand to the Tangram development, which is creating a new, vibrant and walkable destination in Queens,” said Noah Silverman, Chief Development Officer, North America, Full-Service Hotels at Marriott International. “The hotel will set a new standard for lodging, dining and socializing for residents, neighbors and both business and leisure travelers.”
