André Balazs Properties Appoints Glyn Aeppel as Chief Investment Officer
André Balazs has created some of the most innovative and widely imitated hotels in the world. The Collection includes The Mercer in New York, Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, The Raleigh in Miami Beach and Sunset Beach on Shelter Island. The Standards include properties in Hollywood, Downtown LA and Miami Beach.
The company’s residential projects with internationally renowned architects Jean Nouvel, Richard Gluckman and Calvin Tsao have set a precedent for luxury urban living, and have received critical acclaim as some of the most commended new developments in Manhattan. Each Balazs property is united not only by a carefully considered sense of place, but an unwavering commitment to detail, atmosphere and pioneering design, which has established the portfolio as an unrivalled market leader in the United States.
Two highly anticipated André Balazs developments will be opening soon. The Standard, New York, the fourth and largest Standard Hotel in New York's Meatpacking District, is scheduled for completion in spring 2009. William Beaver House, Balazs’ latest residential development, has achieved unprecedented record-breaking sales in Lower Manhattan and expects its first occupants late November.
