Swexan Hotel’s debut is set

A highly-anticipated high-rise hotel has finally given its debut date to the public according to a Dallas Morning News article which says, 

“Four years after breaking ground on the project, developer Harwood International has set an opening date for its high-rise hotel in the Uptown Dallas area. The 22-story hotel tower is under construction near The Crescent at McKinnon and Olive streets.

The 134-room luxury hotel will open next summer and is the latest addition to the 19-block Harwood mixed-use development being built north of downtown Dallas.

The tower is the third building in the Harwood District designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma. Kuma’s first project was the Rolex Building across the street.

The developer chose the name for the hotel based on the Swiss and Texan heritage of the company’s founder, the Barbier-Mueller family.”

Swexan will not just be an ordinary hotel as it will feature a multitude of features, designs and amenities according to a Dallas Observer article. They say, 

“As with all of Harwood’s properties, art and design will be at the forefront of the new project. Hôtel Swexan’s interiors, which will be done by Harwood’s in-house design team, are inspired by a classical 19th-Century Parisian residence, offering “comfortable yet elegant furniture and intricate, hand-carved stone and wooden fireplaces on every floor of the hotel.”

The luxe lobby will feature three dining experiences, including all-day high tea and martini bars, a dimly-lit two-story library cocktail bar, and a hidden underground lounge.

Amenities to the hotel include a signature steakhouse on the seventh floor, a state-of-the-art fitness and wellness center on the eighth floor, and a 20th-floor, 75-foot rooftop infinity-edge swimming pool. The project also includes 12,000 square feet of meeting and event spaces with two grand ballrooms and three private meeting rooms.”

According to Harwood Hospitality Group, they will be creating 300 jobs for the construction and finishing of the grand hotel.
