Details of the Company:
Westin, the upmarket branded hotel brand, will manage the upcoming Rs. 600-crore property on an eight-acre plot in the satellite township of New Town, on the eastern fringes of the city.
Sujit Kanoria-run Shristi Infrastructure Development Corporation Ltd is developing the 330-key hotel, which Westin will manage under a 15-year contract.
“Construction work has been complete. Interiors work is going on. The hotel will be operational by the end of 2016,” Sujit Kanoria, Managing Director, Shristi Infrastructure, told Business Line.
Apart from guest rooms, the hotel will also have service apartments. It will also have an adjoining commercial and retail space, he said.
“We have chosen Westin as our partner because of the chain’s strong (referral) booking system and its brand value,” Kanoria said. The project is likely to break even in another 5 years.
Kolkata-based Shristi, listed on the BSE, is into real estate (commercial and residential) and hospitality. It reported a total income of around Rs. 52 crore during the first six months of this fiscal.
The company, meanwhile, is investing over Rs. 300 crore to set up two new hotels – one in Udaipur, Rajasthan and another in Puducherry. Both would be star properties, with Puducherry being a mix of three-star and five-star facilities.
