SIXTY Hotels – the innovative hotel brand of five luxury lodgings in New York City and Los Angeles, with Miami debuting in 2015, announces the next step in their evolution with a new project in Montreal, Canada. Slated to open late 2016, the collective formed by experienced hospitality leaders Jason Pomeranc, Lawrence Pomeranc, Michael Pomeranc and Stephen Brandman, will open its sixth property – SIXTY Montreal, luxury lifestyle hotel including the city’s first rooftop bar and pool, in the heart of Montreal’s financial and cultural districts as their first international venture.“The cultural and creative sensibility of the city along with its jet-set style makes Montreal an ideal location to open the next SIXTY Hotel” said Jason Pomeranc, co-owner of SIXTY Hotels. “Montreal is filled with eclectic and inspiring neighborhoods and offers fantastic global appeal. Our plan is to build a hotel that takes its inspiration from the local architecture and character of the city, while injecting SIXTY’s flair for hospitality to create a very chic and sophisticated destination hotel.”
To realize SIXTY’s creative vison, the collective engaged ICRAVE, the internally-renowned and New York based design firm, known for their work on both Fortune 500 companies and innovative projects which helped reposition the Meatpacking District, to spearhead the interior design, in collaboration with NEUF architect(e)s, one of the prestigious architecture firms in Canada who designed recognized landmarks such as Mont Tremblant and the CBC Headquarters in Ottawa, who will lead the re-imagination of the property’s footprint.
SIXTY Montreal will be located between Place Des Art and Palais des Congres on René Lévesque Boulevard in the heart of Central Business District, a few blocks from Old Montreal. The project will entail the complete redevelopment of an existing building and will debut 120 stylish guestrooms and suites, expansive event spaces, a signature restaurant and lounge, and 70 branded luxury residences which will reflect the hotel’s aesthetic and service culture. The hotel will also be the home to the city’s first indoor and outdoor rooftop bar and pool with skyline views in the city recently referred to as ‘Canada’s hipster’ capital.
SIXTY Hotels will collaborate on the development of SIXTY Montreal with the Benisti family, owners Point Zero; Canada’s number one leading brand name and the largest manufacturer of women’s, men’s and children’s coordinated sports and street wear, and a unique lifestyle brand unequalled in design, quality and affordability. Today, the company holds offices in Montreal, Toronto, Los Angeles, New York, Dubai, and Australia, supporting product distribution across the globe in small boutiques and large department stores.
“SIXTY is going international” said Stephen Brandman, co-owner of SIXTY Hotels. “This is an exciting, and busy, time for us. In NYC, we’ve completed our head-to-toe renovation of SIXTY SoHo and will debut our new restaurant, Sessanta, in Spring, and we’re reimagining our rooftop bar lounge at SIXTY LES in the Lower East Side. Soon we’ll be debuting Nautilus, a SIXTY hotel in Miami, then embarking on a project at SIXTY Beverly Hills in LA to restyle and revitalize all the rooms and suites while introducing 12 additional guestrooms, and a new, multifunctional event space. Opening SIXTY Montreal in 2016 will be a fantastic next step for our new company, and we’re delighted to be working with a great set of partners to open the first SIXTY Hotel abroad.”
