On hand for Element’s groundbreaking were (left to right) developers Colin and Dale Bosa; Burnaby mayor Derek Corrigan; and Scott Duff, Starwood’s senior director, development.
Bosa Properties has broken ground, in Vancouver, on an Element Hotel, Starwood Hotels & Resorts’s eco-conscious brand.
Set to open in 2014, Element Vancouver Metrotown will be managed by Atlific Hotels and will feature 169 guestrooms and suites.
In addition, the property will offer complimentary wellness programmes and healthy food options.
For instance, Rise, Element’s daily complimentary breakfast buffet, will include low-fat breakfast wraps and fruit smoothies. Guests will have access to a 28,000-sq.-ft. fitness facility right next door.
For business, Element Vancouver Metrotown will boast 5,500 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space, featuring modular furnishings and up-to-date technology, including a 50-inch flat-panel TV, easy-access power outlets and free WiFi.
Element was the first major hotel brand to mandate that all its properties pursue LEED certification. Nine Element hotels operate in North America.
