Corrected: Gansevoort founder to open London hotel in 2015

By Danny King

Gansevoort Hotel Group founder Michael Achenbaum is leading a development effort for a luxury hotel to open in East London’s Shoreditch district in 2015.

The hotel will include 120 rooms as well as a restaurant and a rooftop pool. Whether the hotel will be branded under the Gansevoort name wasn’t disclosed.

Ganesvoort opened its first hotel in New York’s Meatpacking District in 2004. The company has since opened a second New York property as well as a hotel in Turks and Caicos.
