“The chosen hotel company and designers demonstrate developer's clear vision of creating approximately 500 keys, split between two hotels of this new line of hospitality product to differentiate from the pool of hotels that has been built in the global hospitality industry for the past decades,” RiantCapital said.

“Taking advantage of Hyatt's pioneering spirit in hotel concepts, and using designers of different cultural backgrounds, generations, and aesthetic styles, TST will not only redefine Taipei as Asia's next top travel destination, but also promote an enormous business opportunity for Taipei's luxury tourism industry.”
