The Dornych project by Crestyl Group, which will replace the old shopping centre in the vicinity of Brno's main railway station in the coming years, will also offer a hotel. The Leonardo Hotels chain will strengthen its presence in the Czech Republic with the opening of the new lifestyle hotel NYX Hotel Brno by Leonardo Hotels. It will open in mid-2028 and will be the group's second hotel in the Czech Republic after NYX Hotel Prague, which opened in 2017. The Dornych project will offer a freely accessible public space flanked by several smaller buildings. The lower floors of the new buildings will be reserved for shops and services, while the upper floors will house rental housing and offices in addition to the aforementioned hotel. One of the buildings will be occupied by the EUC clinic.

NYX Hotels by Leonardo Hotels is Leonardo's lifestyle brand that represents individual design and modern extravagance. The brand is known for its exceptional art concept curated by local artists. Each NYX hotel is a complete work of art and enchants its guests with cultural attractions and creative events under the motto "The Night Belongs to Us". The hotels also 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 unconventional NYX bar and restaurant, which will be the centrepiece of the hotel, will invite hotel guests and locals alike to meet and party. The highlight of the hotel will be the terrace overlooking the city.

"The new NYX Hotel by Leonardo Hotels in Brno is the perfect complement to our presence in the Czech Republic, strengthening our entire European portfolio. We are delighted to contribute to the urban development of this exciting metropolis with this new hotel," says Yoram Biton, General Manager of Leonardo Hotels Central Europe.

"We really appreciate that Leonardo Hotels has chosen our Dornych project for its new NYX Hotel in Brno. The interest in it shows that it will indeed be a unique project that will offer a unique mix of uses and breathe new life into the city centre," says David Mazacek, Director of Acquisitions at Crestyl. Legal support for the deal was provided by Konečná & Zacha on the Crestyl side and Taylor Wessing Prague on the Leonardo Hotels side.
The tender for the operator was conducted by the hospitality department of Cushman & Wakefield for Crestyl. The result is a strategic long-term lease agreement with Leonardo Hotels for its NYX luxury lifestyle hotel concept. Significant interest from international and local operators underlines the importance of Brno's dynamic 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 Crestyl and Leonardo Hotels to bring the NYX lifestyle concept to Brno. This agreement reflects our commitment to improving service in the city and our ongoing efforts to bring distinguished international hotel brands to our region. The interest of ten different operators in the selection process demonstrates the attractiveness of Brno as a location and underlines the demand for unique and quality experiences among travellers. We are confident that NYX Hotel will make a significant contribution to meeting this demand, enriching the accommodation offer in Brno and setting new standards in the local market," says David Nath, Head of the CEE and SEE Hotel Team, Cushman & Wakefield.

The Dornych project will replace the current dilapidated giant building with a partially roofed open-air public space with a total area of 25,000 sqm, around which six smaller buildings will be built. In addition to the NYX hotel, they will house rental housing, offices, restaurants, shops and services - specifically 186 apartments and approximately 50,000 sqm of office and retail space. The EUC clinic will also be included, and the hallmark of Dornych should be a completely unique range of restaurants, bars and cafes, in addition to a huge public space.
The buildings will have a maximum of seven to eight floors. Parking is planned in underground garages. The whole project will of course be connected to the street network and the underpass under the station, linking the historic city centre with the planned South Quarter. The total investment in the project is over seven billion crowns. The current timetable envisages that the closure of the existing building and its demolition will take place in the autumn of this year. The project is expected to be completed in approximately three years from the start of demolition.
