Radisson Hospitality AB, part of Radisson Hotel Group, is pleased to announce the signing of a new Radisson Collection property in Milan, Italy. Working in conjunction with Allianz, the group will redevelop the former Allianz Italia headquarters in Milan into the Radisson Collection Hotel, Santa Sofia Milan. Set to open in 2022, the hotel will be managed by Allianz Real Estate on behalf of Allianz group companies.

The hotel, located at via Santa Sofia 37 in the central Corso Italia district, will be part of the highly prestigious Radisson Collection portfolio. It will join other landmark Collection properties in Rome, Venice and the recently announced Palazzo Touring Club – also in Santa Sofia, Milan.

The transformation project will create a destination hotel for both high-end cosmopolitan and business clientele. It will have 160 guest rooms, including 43 junior suites and 11 suites, while leisure and dining facilities will include a fine gastronomy restaurant and a rooftop bar with views over Milan. Guests will also have access to a wellness terrace on the fourth floor.

The hotel, which will also offer hi-tech meeting and events spaces for the local and international business communities, will benefit from the new Santa Sofia M4 underground stop, which is expected to open in 2022 and will directly connect the hotel with the city center and Linate Airport.

Elie Younes, Executive Vice President & Chief Development Officer for Radisson Hotel Group, said: “For this hotel, we have chosen our prestigious brand Radisson Collection, an exclusive premium lifestyle brand created for unique and exceptional properties. We are extremely grateful to Allianz for the trust they have placed in Radisson Hotel Group, in our dedicated team and in our most prestigious hotel brand. We will transform this building into a new and exclusive address for the Milanese hotel industry, contributing to the positioning of Corso Italia as a rising and attractive location.”

Donato Saponara, Head of Italy at Allianz Real Estate, said: “We are delighted to be repositioning our Santa Sofia office asset into this prestigious hotel. The project will transform the former office building into an iconic destination, providing the very best facilities for its guests as well as enhancing the local area. The project forms part of the exciting regeneration of the Santa Sofia area. The introduction of a hotel which focuses on gastronomy will help to restore this part of Milan into a 24/7 destination for citizens and visitors alike.”

Allianz was assisted by CBRE Hotels Italy, led by Francesco Calia, throughout the selection process and negotiation of the commercial terms of the lease agreement signed between the parties. Dentons acted as legal advisor with a team led by partner Maria Sole Insinga.

The Radisson Hotel Team, led by Mauro Vinci, Senior Director of Business Development for Italy, was assisted by Fabio Basile of the Studio Marco Piva on the technical side and by lawyer Nicola Ferrini.
