VANCOUVER — The Sutton Place Hotels is investing in a new hotel property in Halifax’s Nova Centre — its first Sutton Place property in Atlantic Canada. The company has partnered with Argyle Developments for the project, which is set to open in Spring 2019.
The Nova Centre is a one-million-sq.-ft., mixed-use development, which includes the newly opened Halifax Convention Centre, a financial centre, office space, restaurants, shops and a public plaza known as Rogers Square.
The Sutton Place Hotel will offer guests 262 well-appointed guestrooms and suites, an on-site contemporary restaurant and lounge, and underground parking.
“Nova Centre is a state-of-the-art development and we are thrilled to bring the Sutton Place brand to Halifax,” says 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.”
“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,” says Joe Ramia of Argyle Developments. “There is a great synergy between our two families because we share similar values and a deep background in family business. I’m proud that the Gaglardi family is choosing to invest in Nova Scotia.”
