Pullman by Accor Debuts in Singapore

France-based AccorHotels (“Accor”) has been appointed by Singapore-based property developer EL Development Private Limited (“EL Development”) to manage the hotel in Hill Street. Located at Singapore’s civic and cultural district, the property is in proximity to Orchard Road shopping belt and the Central Business District. The new-build hotel will be positioned as a business hotel, managed by Accor’s Pullman brand, and is slated to open in late-2021. The 10-storey hotel will feature 340 to 350 rooms ranging from 22 sqm to 38 sqm, subject to the authorities’ approval. Other facilities will include a pool, a fitness centre, a restaurant and some meeting rooms. EL development acquired the Hill Street site from Singapore Telecommunications Limited (“Singtel”) for S$118 million in February 2018. As Singtel has leased back the property until mid-2019, the redevelopment is planned to commence thereafter. Accor currently manages 15 hotels in Singapore, with the new signing being the first under the Pullman brand.
