Vastint Hospitality and Marriott International started construction in December 2015
of their largest Moxy hotel to date at Gateway Gardens, right at Frankfurt
International Airport. The site is at Frankfurt's newest business district, within
walking distance of the airport's Terminal 2.
The new lifestyle hotel brand, Moxy Hotels, aims to shake up traditional hospitality
and offer a fun, and stylish hotel experience for young at heart travellers. Moxy
Frankfurt Gateway Gardens will have 307 rooms and 51 underground parking spots.
Vastint Hospitality, the owners and developers, commissioned Industriebau Imetaal
to build the new scheme. It will be managed by the franchisee, Nordic Hospitality.
The hotel is scheduled to be completed and to open for business in 2016.
“We are delighted to have won over Vastint and Marriot for our city quarter,” said
Dr. Kerstin Hennig, Managing Director of Grundstücksgesellschaft Gateway
Gardens. “ The superb location of Gateway Gardens at Frankfurt Airport and
Frankfurt’s municipal forest lends the quarter a unique dynamic that is perfectly
compatible with the concept and ambition of Moxy. With a view to the current and
future passenger volumes at the airport, the hotel is urgently needed,” Dr. Hennig
went on to say.
Peter Andrews, Managing Director of Vastint Hospitality, elaborated: “The location of
Gateway Gardens close to Germany’s busiest airport and on a growing business
park is ideal and represents one of our most exciting projects.”
