HONG KONG, September 18, 2006 -- Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has announced an agreement to brand and manage 80 luxurious residences that will be developed on a site adjacent to the Group’s award-winning hotel in Knightsbridge. The development, which will be known as One Hyde Park, will comprise some of the world’s most exclusive private apartments, luxury retail and a selection of leisure facilities, which will also enhance the experience of the Group’s London hotel guests. The overall project, which is being developed by the award-winning developers and interior designers, Candy & Candy, is scheduled for completion in 2009.

The Residences at Mandarin Oriental in London are the latest in a line of residential projects that Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has announced around the world.

Through the provision of custom-designed benefits, residents can choose to be treated as guests of Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London and enjoy the exceptional services provided by the hotel. 

The One Hyde Park development consists of four inter-connecting buildings designed by leading architectural practice, Richard Rogers Partnership, which will enjoy spectacular views of Hyde Park to the north and Knightsbridge to the south.  The hotel will be directly connected underground to One Hyde Park in order to provide management services for the whole development, as well as tailor-made services for individual residents. Two exclusive ranges of leisure facilities, including swimming pools, are being designed within the residential development, with separate access for hotel guests and apartment owners to enjoy respectively.  A private, underground car park for One Hyde Park residents will contain a separately controlled car parking area for hotel guests.
