Sonder Holdings Inc. is adding eight additional properties to its existing portfolio of managed and operated accommodations in Mexico City.
Concentrated primarily in the Condesa and Roma neighborhoods, these properties represent an expansion of over 600 units less than a year after Sonder first launched operations in Mexico City.
“Mexico is one of the most visited countries in the world for tourism activities and the emphasis on architecture and design that we find with properties in Mexico City is a great fit for the Sonder brand and experience that we offer,” said Martin Picard, Co-Founder and Global Head of Real Estate for Sonder. “We plan to continue growing our offering in Mexico and establishing a gateway for further expansion into Latin America in the future.”
“We’re thrilled to collaborate with Sonder to deliver an elevated, tech-driven experience that meets the high expectations of today’s modern savvy travelers,” said Alan Zayat, CEO at ZGI/Cojab. “They are a reliable, well-capitalized partner that is redefining guest stays in Mexico City and we look forward to continuing our work with them.”
Sonder currently manages and operates units across four properties in Mexico City, including a sleek, tranquil haven just steps from Avenida Presidente Masaryk; a neo-classical getaway with arched windows and detailed stonework in the heart of the Roma neighborhood; and modern, airy spaces in Condesa, central to beautiful, tree-lined avenues with hip sidewalk cafes and an opulent nightlife.
In addition to ZGI/Cojab, Sonder works with real estate partners such as Metta Group and Estructura Developers.
In order to support the company’s expansion in the region, Sonder also recently appointed Pablo Gonzalez as senior director of real estate in Mexico City. Pablo brings over a decade of experience in the global real estate industry to Sonder, including leading real estate efforts for one of the country’s largest private healthcare companies, Star Medica, in addition to positions with CH Arquitectos, Jones Lang LaSalle and Grupo ECO.
Headquartered in San Francisco, Sonder operates in 35+ cities across nine countries, and has approximately 15,000 live and contracted units worldwide.
