Simon Turner, Starwood Hotels, President of Global Development, on his favorite project

“Throughout my career, I have always been a particular fan of adaptive re-use and using space creatively and sustainably to enhance the guest experience and urban environment. Perhaps my favorite RI project to date is the hotel incorporated into a bridge concept [Koi] by MM Planners.  

"Their concept serves as both a literal and figurative bridge, physically connecting locations while allowing for new public space and the opportunity for public and private sectors to come together in a beneficial way."

"It’s both creative and practical and in servicing both commercial and broader public needs and likely provides for interesting public/private financing options.”
