A hotel will mark the "gateway" to the planned Glasi urban development in Bülach. The property developer and total contractor Steiner AG and the Novum Hospitality hotel group have agreed to build and run a hotel in the new district of Bülach, which will also include about 560 apartments, industrial premises and shops.
Hotel guests will in future also be among the Glasi Quarter’s users. The property developer and total (design-and-build) contractor Steiner AG has gained the German hotel group Novum Hospitality as its partner for the planned district in Bülach. Steiner today concluded a tenancy agreement with Novum Group Holding GmbH in Essen.
A "niu" hotel for Bülach
Novum is planning a hotel of the "niu" brand which, with its concept, unconventional design and affordable prices, is aimed at a younger target group. The hotel's "living lobby", open-plan bar and co-working spaces with ultrafast broadband, USB ports and integral power supply provide modern people with everything they need in order to stay in touch even when they’re on the move.
The three-star hotel will offer 131 rooms. Guests will be able to relax in rooms that feature clear, straight lines and modern interiors. All rooms will be equipped with the latest technology. Plans for the ground floor include a restaurant with outdoor seating, which will add to the Glasi Quarter’s gastronomic appeal.
The "niu" contemporary hotel concept stands for “native, inspiring and unique”. The first niu hotel was opened in Essen, Germany at the beginning of February 2018. Over 40 further niu hotels are currently under development or being constructed across the whole of Europe. Each niu hotel tells a unique story and takes its guests on a journey to the most striking features and surprising peculiarities of the location in question.
Distinctive gateway to the Glasi Quarter
Switzerland’s first niu hotel is set to open in autumn 2021. With its conical shape, it will be a distinctive gateway to the Glasi Quarter. For anyone walking to the district from the railway station, the hotel will be the first accommodation they come across. By contributing towards the broad social mix of the new neighbourhood, the hotel will be an ideal enhancement for the Glasi Quarter.
