NYX Hotels by Leonardo Hotels is Leonardo's lifestyle brand that represents individual design and modern extravagance. This brand is known for its exceptional concept art curated by local artists. Each NYX hotel is an absolute work of art and enchants its guests with cultural attractions and creative events under the motto "The Night Belongs to Us". At the same time, the hotels create an inspiring world for business and meetings thanks to their unique urban atmosphere.

The new NYX Hotel Brno will have 170 stylish rooms on seven floors. The non-traditional NYX bar and restaurant, which will be the centerpiece of the hotel, will invite hotel guests and local residents to meet and party. The highlight of the hotel will be the terrace with a view of the city.

"The new NYX Hotel by Leonardo Hotels in Brno is a perfect addition to our presence in the Czech Republic, which strengthens our entire European portfolio. We are happy to participate in the urban development of this exciting metropolis with this new hotel," says Yoram Biton, CEO of Leonardo Hotels Central Europe.

"We really appreciate that Leonardo Hotels chose our Dornych project for its new NYX Hotel in Brno. The interest in it shows that it will truly be a unique project that will offer a unique combination of different uses and breathe new life into the city center,” says David Mazáček, director of acquisitions at Crestyl. The legal assurance of the agreement was provided by the Konečná & Zacha law firm on the Crestyl side, and the Taylor Wessing Prague firm on the Leonardo Hotels side.

The selection process for the operator was carried out for Crestyl by the hospitality department of Cushman & Wakefield. The result is a strategic long-term lease agreement with Leonardo Hotels for its NYX luxury lifestyle hotel concept. The significant interest of international and local operators underlines the importance of the dynamic Brno hotel market and its growing attractiveness as a location for innovative hotel concepts. NYX Hotel Brno complements and enriches the city's hotel offer.

"We are delighted to have been able to broker this partnership between Crestyle and Leonardo Hotels, which brought the NYX lifestyle concept to Brno. This agreement reflects our commitment to improving services in the city and our ongoing efforts to bring prominent international hotel brands to our region. The interest of ten different operators in the selection process proves the attractiveness of Brno as a location and underlines the demand for unique and high-quality experiences among travelers. We believe that the NYX hotel will significantly contribute to meeting this demand, enrich the accommodation offer in Brno and set new standards on the local market," says David Nath, head of the hotel team for the CEE and SEE region, Cushman & Wakefield.

As part of the Dornych project, the current dilapidated huge building will be replaced by a partially roofed, freely accessible public space with a total area of 25,000 m2, around which there will be six smaller buildings. In addition to the NYX hotel, they will house rental housing, offices, restaurants, shops and services - namely 186 apartments and approximately 50,000 m2 of office and retail space. The EUC clinic will also be part of it, Dornych should also have a unique range of restaurants, bars and cafes in addition to the huge public space.

The buildings will be seven to eight stories high. Parking is provided in underground garages. The entire project will of course be connected to the street network and an underpass under the station and will connect the historic center of the city with the planned South District. The total investment in the project is over seven billion crowns. The current timetable assumes that the existing building will be closed and demolished in the fall of this year. The project is expected to be completed in approximately three years from the start of demolition.
