Hospitality Design - January 2010 - 41

emerging markets perspectives By Alia Akkam, Tara Mastrelli, Stacy Shoemaker Rauen, and Jana Schiowitz Trying to nd where will be home to the next hospitality boom? We took the global pulse and came out with four cities and four countries that caught our attention. Baku, Azerbaijan Located on the Caspian Sea in the oil-rich ex-Soviet republic of Azerbaijan, the city of Baku is attracting some serious attention. The least subtle are the Full Moon and Crescent Hotels (lovingly referred to as “the death star” in many architectural circles) developed by Korean architecture firm Heerim Architects & Planners, but many of the leading chains are quietly taking notice too. Hilton is set to open its first hotel this December. The 300-room new-build, courtesy of ara design out of London, will form part of a multi-purpose development close to the city center. London-based architecture firm ReardonSmith is also working on two hotels in Baku: the transformation of landmark Absheron Hotel into the Absheron JW Marriott Hotel, and a new-build Four Seasons Hotel that draws inspiration from late 19th century French urban architecture. The JW Marriott hotel, anticipated to open in 2011, will overlook Baku’s Freedom Square, and will be part of a mixed-use development also designed by ReardonSmith to include 16 floors of private residences, retail, and offices as well as a 20-story hotel. And Marriott is also developing the 5-Star Amburan Marriott Beach Resort, designed by architect Arcadia Design, which will include a Yacht Club with slips for 20 vessels; the largest children’s entertainment center in Azerbaijan; a spa and wellness therapy center; indoor and outdoor sport facilities; and bowling alleys. “Many new buildings of different types will soon be shaping Baku’s horizon. Also, a number of post Second World War buildings are currently being refurbished and given a new face, generally with very beautiful local stone, to create a much richer, enhanced urban environment,” says Christopher Lanksbury, board director at Chapman Taylor, a London architecture firm which is currently working on a slew of projects in Baku including the Baku Port development, Baku Business Center, and Baku Station retail center. “Before the financial downturn, Azerbaijan was the fastest growing economy in the world, due to its wealth of mineral resources. I believe the recovery is well underway for Baku.” From top: Renderings of the Four Seasons Hotel, the Baku Business Center, and the Absheron JW Marriott Hotel. www.hospitalitydesign.com January/February 2010
