sbe plots Mondrian Mexico City expansion

Hospitality group sbe has announced plans for 10 hotel and residential projects in Mexico City over the next five years.

A partnership with development company Be Grand will see sbe expand its portfolio of hotel and lifestyle brands into the city, with the first property breaking ground in Q1 of this year. 

Situated in the upscale Polanco district of Mexico City, Mondrian Polanco Hotel & Residences is set to open in 2021 and will feature a “lavish” signature sbe spa with fitness centre, a pool deck with 25m infinity pool and a rooftop garden ballroom.

The site will have 144 rooms and 126 branded residences, along with sbe branded culinary and lifestyle offerings.

"We are extremely proud to begin our longstanding partnership with my dear friend Nicolas Carrancedo and Be Grand, one of the largest and most respected development companies in Mexico," said Sam Nazarian, founder and chief executive of sbe. 

"We are thrilled to bring the Mondrian brand to this prestigious district and cultural hub in Mexico City, and to break ground on future sbe branded properties in Mexico with Be Grand."

Jacqueline Kneebone, director of front of house and wellness at Seacontainers London (formally Mondrian London), part of the sbe Lifestyle Hospitality group, will take part in the "Ramping up a successful opening – hotel spas" Situation Room at the WSW Convention London.
