SCG America and F&T Group announced that 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.
“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.”
Positioned minutes from LaGuardia Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport, Flushing is the first stop for many international travelers who are visiting the United States.
Inspired by the traditional Chinese dissection puzzle consisting of flat pieces called tans, Tangram embraces its Flushing location to introduce urban-style living in the vein of top Asian cities like Shanghai, Seoul and Tokyo.
Tangram showcases 275,000 s/f of retail with a skylight; themed restaurants; a 24,000 s/f 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.
The Renaissance New York Flushing Hotel at Tangram will be the brand’s first hotel in Queens and one of the few 4-star hotels in the borough.
With architecture by Margulies Hoelzli Architecture and interiors by Wilson Associates, the Renaissance New York Flushing Hotel at Tangram will have a porte-cochere on 37th Avenue where guests will be whisked up to a top floor lobby spanning the entire floor.
An array of spaces to dine, relax and socialize will include a signature restaurant, two bars, a club lounge and a 3,500-square-foot outdoor terrace. In addition to a 60-foot 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 a direct indoor passage to the retail mall from the hotel.
“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.”
