The Sutton Place Hotels is opening its first property in Atlantic Canada at Halifax’s Nova Centre. The Nova Centre is a one-million-square-foot mixed development space that includes the new Halifax Convention Centre, a financial centre, office space, restaurants, shops, and a public plaza known as Rogers Square.
Work will begin immediately on the hotel, adding 262 guest rooms and suites, an on-site contemporary restaurant and lounge and underground parking. A grand opening is scheduled for spring 2019.
“Nova Centre is a state-of-the-art development and we are thrilled to bring the Sutton Place brand to Halifax,” said Tom Gaglardi, chairman and CEO of The Sutton Place Hotels. “My family opened its first hotel in 1967, so it makes perfect sense to partner with another well-established family like the Ramias to bring Sutton Place’s ‘Tradition of Luxury’ to the east coast.”
The design will pay tribute to city’s seafaring past, while featuring the latest in technology and energy efficiency.
“We are very excited to introduce such a prominent business family as the Gaglardis to Nova Scotia and The Sutton Place Hotel as the new luxury hotel in Nova Centre,” said Joe Ramia of Argyle Developments, Nova Centre’s developer. “There is a great synergy between our two families because we share similar values and a deep background in family business.”
