LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Oct. 8, 2012) - The Radisson Blu hotel at East Midlands airport is a £22 million luxury hotel created by MAG Developments almost a year ago in November 2011.
The 218-bed hotel has been selected as one of the finalists in the prestigious European Hotel Design awards which brings together the leading owners, operators, developers and investors in the hotel industry. The award recognizes and appreciates the outstanding design and architecture of the best European hotels and chooses a number of finalists before announcing the overall winner.
The finals are to be held in November this year where the Radisson will be recognized for its sustainable yet stylish design. The hotel was built using innovative design and environmentally friendly principles to develop a luxury, sustainable concept which has seen it top the charts as one of the most efficient hotels in the Rezidor Group's European group of over 400 hotels.
Property Development Director of MAG Developments, David Roberts said: "We believe this is the greenest full-service hotel in the UK, demonstrating both our desire to be a premier sustainable developer and MAG Developments' ability to deliver such a significant project during the current economic climate, on time and on budget."
This commitment to sustainability and success bodes well for MAG Developments future projects including their growing property portfolio recently updated by the ongoing development of the enterprise zone at Manchester Airport. This development scheme is part of a government plan to encourage economic growth in the North West and if the Radisson Blu hotel is anything to go by we have excellent energy performance ratings, innovative technologies and stylish, contemporary design to look forward to.
