The Hard Rock Empire is spreading out, and their next stop is a luxury condo hotel being built in San Diego.
Construction is under way on Hard Rock International’s first condo hotel (www.hardrockcondos.com), in San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter, right. Scheduled for completion in spring 2007, the project calls for a 12-story, 315,000-square-foot hotel with 167 studio units ($400,000 and up), 253 one-bedroom suites ($1 million and up) and a spa and fitness center.
All units will be furnished and equipped with wireless Internet access, iPod connections, high-level audio and home-theater-quality video systems. Seventeen “rock star” suites of up to 1,700 square feet will feature martini bars, soaking tubs, rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia and original artwork.
The blueprints also include a Nobu sushi restaurant, a 5,000-square-foot concert hall, a fourth-floor terrace bar adjacent to an outdoor pool with cabanas, and a lobby lounge. The terrace bar and the lounge, designed and operated by the creator of After Midnight and the Whiskey Bar, Rande Gerber, will also have live music on occasion. via NY TimesThis is going to be one amazing property, and will wow the 18 to 35 set. Heck, I am 40 and it wowing me right now. And a condo hotel is a condo that rents out the rooms when the owners are not on site.
