TRDL have worked on the masterplan of this multi- hotel site, which now includes the 600 room Hilton Hilton and a 250 room luxury hotel which will become the first Waldorf Astoria Hotel in Africa. This was originally designed as a Sheraton and Westin, but opened in as a Fairmont Towers luxury hotel through various phases of construction.
In its current operation in 2018 it has now become a Hilton hotel with proposed modifications to the Towers to form the Waldorf Astoria luxury hotel. Tom is acting as Architect for the current modifications that are underway, while also designing a new apartment development on site with 150 luxury apartments. The conversion of the Fairmont to a Waldorf Astoria involves a rebranding of 250 rooms and 17 suites along with a refit of an 1800m2 ballroom, lounge bar, all day dining, spa and poolside.
