The real estate investment company RFR
Holding of New York and the Starwood Hotels and Resorts chain are responsible
for the hotel project and the luxury apartments W Tel Aviv, to be opened in
2018 on Yefet Street and Louis Pasteur corner near Old Jaffa.
The hotel will be built within the historic
building of the French hospital, which is currently undergoing strict
preservation work, alongside a residential wing in a separate 6-storey
building. The total area of the project is 5 acres, and is expected to include
125 hotel rooms in the historic building, alongside 40 residential apartments.
Cassis Restaurant, located on
the Givat Ha'Aliya beach, is part of the project, and has been operating for
more than five years, managed by Chef Ayelet Perry. She will also be
responsible for designing and operating the hotel's events center and cafe.
