Globally established luxury lifestyle brand Nobu Hotels, founded by Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro and Meir Teper announced the arrival of a new Nobu Hotel and Nobu Atlanta Restaurant, at Southeast’s premier mixed-use development at Atlanta’s Phipps Plaza.
Partnering with Simon, a global leader in premier shopping, dining and entertainment destinations, Nobu Hotels will intuitively blend its hotel and restaurant as one – with 150 rooms, a striking rooftop pool, corporate conference space and spa facilities. Nobu Atlanta restaurant, revered for its signature new style Japanese cuisine, will operate in a 10,000 square foot space. Additional elements of this exciting new Phipps Plaza development call for a 90,000 square-foot Life Time® Athletic healthy living, offices and entertainment destination.
Trevor Horwell, Chief Executive Officer of Nobu Hotels said, “We are very proud of our partnership with Simon, one of the world’s largest and leading owners and managers of high-quality retail destinations. They have a vision to create a dynamic lifestyle experience within Atlanta at Phipps Plaza and we are pleased to be a cornerstone for this. Our hospitality brand thrives on being a catalyst for global mixed-use destinations whether this be from hotel, restaurant, retail or residences.”
“Today’s exciting news without question enhances Phipps Plaza as the luxury destination of choice for shopping, dining, entertainment, and hospitality in Atlanta and the entire Southeast,” said Patrick Peterman, Simon’s Vice President of Development and Asset Intensification.
Construction is slated to commence in 2018 with a phased opening beginning in spring 2020. These new elements will be completely integrated into the existing footprint of Phipps Plaza, which will continue to be anchored by the extremely productive Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue stores. Shopping and parking at Phipps Plaza will not be affected during the construction of the project.
