Our new project with Autograph, an iconic hotel in Porto


If you’ve been to Porto you’d have seen it, if planning to go you’ll definitely see it. The JN Tower was, is and forever will be a symbol of Porto and its people, part of the city’s social fabric. It was after all, home to ‘the newspaper of the North’, Jornal de Notícias. This is a project close to the hearts of the investors, Global Media Group, as they are themselves the owners of the newspaper.

We are super excited to be part of the team forwarding this icon into the future, seeing it converted to an Autograph Collection luxurious property that blends history and modernity, tradition and hipness, in the heart of the city.

In homage to the building’s heritage – a Márcio Freitas design – and the newspaper’s legacy, this new icon for the city of Porto, is to be called Hotel Jornal.

Stay tuned as the story unfolds.
