John Portman & Associates to Design New 5-Star Hotel in Beijing

John Portman & Associates announced that the firm has been selected by Zhong Lian Run Shi Investment Company to design a new 5-star, 550-room hotel across from the United States Embassy in Beijing's Chaoyang District.

With a dynamic building form and a dramatic atrium, The Zhong Lian Run Shi Hotel will be approximately 20 stories in height and feature a conference center.

The 120,000-square meter complex will also include service apartments in a separate tower.

Below-grade facilities in the new Portman-designed complex include retail shopping and connections to the owner's adjacent office and retail project, currently under construction.

Portman is employing a fully integrated design approach to ensure that all design decisions uphold a sustainable intent.

The project's "green" appeal, coupled with its excellent location in the Embassy District, will make the complex attractive to the international and government communities in Beijing.
