AECOM has won a project management contract to oversee the development of the Lotte Hotel in the heart of St Petersburg.
The win is the fourth time the Russian team has worked with the Lotte Group, having previously worked on Lotte Plaza, Moscow’s Lotte Hotel and a confectionary plant in Kaluga.
“Korean firms are now amongst the main investors in Russia and we are keen to further develop our ties with them,” commented Choi Kwon Tae, AECOM’s director of Korean projects. “We’ve already built up a strong track record working with LG, Samsung, Hyundai, and KT&G. We are proud that this project is our fourth for the Lotte Group.”
With 169 rooms on six levels, this 5 star hotel is located just in front of St. Isaac’s Cathedral in St. Petersburg’s historical city centre, an area listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The hotel has a long history - the sixth US president, John Quincy Adams, lived there from 1809-1814 when he worked as US 1st ambassador in Russia.
Strict heritage regulations governing this development means the project team has had to find innovative solutions to provide contemporary luxury within the building’s classical setting.
