A mixed-use project planned for Santa Clara, Calif., would have
three hotels, including one under the recently announced Equinox fitness brand,
the site’s developer said at the NYU Hospitality Industry Investment Conference.
Kenneth Himmel, CEO of Related Cos.’ Related Urban division,
said the City Place project, located next to Levi’s Stadium (home of the San
Francisco 49ers), will have a 225-room Equinox hotel as well as a 400-room business
hotel and a 150-room lifestyle hotel.
Himmel added that Related Cos. is looking to receive
approvals for the site next year, though he declined to give a time frame on
when the project would be built.
This spring, fitness-club operator Equinox Holdings, which
Related Cos. owns, announced its plans for branded hotels, with the first
slated to open as part of the Hudson Yards project on Manhattan’s west side in
2018. A second Equinox hotel is slated for downtown Los Angeles in 2019.
Himmel said there were two additional locations earmarked
for Equinox hotels, though declined to say where.
