The building, formerly known as the “Gewerbehaus” (commercial building), originally served as the headquarters for Austria’s Chamber of Commerce.
The 8 floors, the forecourt and the spacious public areas will undergo formal renovations to turn the property into a hotel and public meeting place.
Alongside 196 rooms and suites, the Hoxton will include various simple but elegant F&B options, from a sandwich shop and an ice cream parlour to the lobby bar and roof terrace. It will also boast a large event space. The Hoxton is set to open in 2023, when it will still be regarded as ahead of its time.
