The Palácio Tangará opened its doors to the public in Summer of 2017 after GTIS acquired the site in 2013. The hotel was designed by architect Patricia Anastassiadis and is located in Burle Marx Park overlooking a 26-acre stretch of dense Atlantic rainforest 10 miles southwest to the center of São Paulo.
“We are extremely honored to receive this recognition from Condé Nast for the Palácio Tangará,” said Josh Pristaw, Senior Managing Director, Head of Capital Markets and Co-head of Brazil. “GTIS has been dedicated to expanding its Brazillian Real Estate portfolio since 2005, and spent more than four years working to develop Palácio Tangará into the magnificent property it is today.
