Montreal-based Group Germain Hotels is enroute to welcome its first Alt Hotel to Saskatchewan, once plans for the 15-storey hotel in the River Landing area of Saskatoon materialize in 2018.
The 155-room asset, set to break ground in 2016, will be a key part of a development at Parcel Y, a prime piece of riverfront real estate at in the area.
Parcel Y is being developed through a joint venture partnership between Greystone and Victory Majors. Triovest has been appointed the development and leasing Manager for the project.
All rooms will offer a view of the South Saskatchewan River. The property will also feature 4,000 square feet of meeting space with the latest technology, a fitness centre and space for a restaurant. The hotel will be situated northeast of the intersection of Spadina Crescent East and 2nd Avenue, in front of the Remai Modern Art Gallery and within walking distance of many of the city’s other main attractions.
“This new location, in the vibrant River Landing area of the city, represents our third Alt Hotel property in the western provinces,” notes Jean-Yves Germain, co-president of Group Germain Hotels. “It’s an ideal location and an exciting marker of the steady progress towards our goal of offering 20 properties to visitors across the country by 2020.”
The first Alt Hotel in western Canada opened in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 2015. Alt Hotel Calgary, Alberta, is scheduled to open in 2017.
