City Developments Signs Agreements with Marriott International
Baker & McKenzie has advised affiliates of City Developments Limited (CDL), Singapore-listed international real estate operating company on the signing of two hotel management agreements with Marriott International, Inc. (NASDAQ: MAR).
One of the hotels is part of a mega mixed-use development, The South Beach, which is strategically located on Beach Road, bordering Singapore’s CBD. It will be Singapore’s first JW Marriott Hotel, offering the warm authentic service and crafted culinary experiences that the JW Marriott brand is known for. The other hotel is a new build and will be Singapore’s first hotel under the EDITION brand. EDITION hotels is the first international luxury-lifestyle brand which combines the personal, intimate, individualized and unique hotel experience that Ian Schrager, the internationally recognized American visionary hotelier, is known for, with the reach, operational expertise and global scale of Marriott International.
Lead partner Graeme Dickson stated: “This is a very exciting project for Baker & McKenzie as it makes us genuine exporters of Australian legal expertise. Working alongside the legal team at CDL, we were successful in negotiating a suite of complex multi-party agreements."
Graeme Dickson was assisted by Baker & McKenzie Associate Kerrie Duong, Legal Secretaries Antonella Barry and Susan Robinson.
