CitizenM To Open Its First Dublin Hotel
CitizenM has finalised the acquisition of a property in Dublin, where it will build its first hotel in the city, according to a statement published on CitizenM.Press.CamronPR.com.
According to the statement, the planned hotel will be called the CitizenM Dublin St Patrick’s Hotel, and it will open in 2024.
CitizenM noted in the aforementioned statement that it will preserve the history of the building’s current Brutalist landmark facade – generally characterised by unfinished surfaces, unusual shapes, and heavy-looking materials – designed by Irish architect Sam Stephenson, along with retaining his studio on site. When it is completed, CitizenM Dublin St Patrick’s Hotel will be the first fully modular-built commercial building in Ireland.
According to the statement published on CitizenM.Press.CamronPR.com, the hotel will be delivered by BCP Capital, which has been granted planning permission for a 245-room hotel on the site, at 69 Bride Street in Dublin, and construction will commence in August of this year.
Statement By CitizenM’s CEO
The statement published on CitizenM.Press.CamronPR.com included one from CitizenM’s CEO, Klaas Van Lookeren Campagne, wherein he said, “Dublin has been high on our list of target cities for some time, and we are thrilled to have secured this location as our first entry into the Irish market. While the past year has been a challenge for the whole industry, we are confident and continue with our ambitious growth strategy, both in Europe and the US, which includes actively seeking additional locations in Dublin. We believe our affordable luxury concept is a great fit for the city, appealing to both visitors and locals alike, and look forward to connecting with this vibrant community.”
