Rosewood Hotels & Resorts continues its growth in China with the announcement of Rosewood Hangzhou opening in 2026. Located in Wangjiang New City, an emerging hub of innovation, technology, and financial services in the heart of Hangzhou, the new-build luxury hotel will occupy prime real estate within a mixed-use development project.
Spanning 740,000 square meters, the Wangjiang New City development will include a K11 Art Mall, office buildings and workspaces, luxury residences, and cultural attractions, in addition to Rosewood Hangzhou. The 140-room hotel will sit in a standalone building totaling 25,000 square meters over 16 stories.
The architecture of the project will be led by Büro Ole Scheeren, with interiors by Shanghai-based Neri&Hu. Blending tradition with modernity, the development will aim to contribute to making the city a benchmark for innovative urban life and a role model for sustainable development. In line with Rosewood’s commitment to environmental preservation and protection, sustainability will be a key component of the project, from its design to operations. Rosewood Hangzhou is being designed for both LEED and WELL certification, following the optimal framework for engineering a holistic green building with maximum sustainability features and benefits while also incorporating architectural and operational elements that aim to advance human health and wellness. As a seasoned expert in environmentally sensitive architecture projects, Büro Ole Scheeren will work with Rosewood Hotels & Resorts to showcase the positive impacts that built environments can have on their visitors and the planet.
