City Celebrates Historic Groundbreaking of One Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills, CA, February 8, 2024 – Cain International, the privately held investment firm, together with the City of Beverly Hills, Aman Group, OKO Group, and Hilton today celebrates the groundbreaking of the highly anticipated One Beverly Hills. The 17.5-acre urban destination will connect the iconic Beverly Hilton and Waldorf Astoria with 10-acres of botanical gardens & open space and will introduce the first Aman hotel, branded residences and exclusive members club to North America’s West Coast.
Master planned by globally renowned architecture firm Foster + Partners, with Aman designs by KHA (Kerry Hill Architects), One Beverly Hills will showcase a distinct and cohesive design narrative reflective of the city’s vibrant layers and storied history. Award-winning design collective RIOS is the landscape architect and has curated over 200 species of California native and water-wise plants and trees including palms, oaks, sycamores, succulents and olives to be integrated throughout the gardens; 4.0 acres of which will be exclusively for Aman residents, club members and hotel guests, another 4.5 acres will be open to the public.
In addition to the 10-story luxury Aman Hotel with 78 all-suite guest rooms, the world’s pre-eminent hospitality and lifestyle brand will also bring a limited number of Aman-branded residences across two towers to the development, as well as a standalone 100,000 square foot Aman Club – the brand’s private members club – with expansive wellness facilities.
The Beverly Hilton will undergo a restoration with significant upgrades as part of the masterplan, integrating designs which pay homage to its legacy and will further cement its position as the city’s premier venue for decades to come.
The project will bring more than 2,700 direct construction jobs to the region. Turner Construction Company will be leading overall site management of the One Beverly Hills mixed-use development. Along with Cain Development and OKO Group, Turner will oversee contracting opportunities for construction as well as provide educational outreach and engagement services to aid diverse businesses and local job seekers in preparation for work opportunities on the project site.

About Aman Group
Aman was founded in 1988 with the vision of building a collection of intimate retreats with the unassuming, warm hospitality of a gracious private home. The first, Amanpuri (place of peace), in Phuket, Thailand, introduced the concept and, since then, Aman has grown to encompass 35 exquisitely serene hotels and resorts and residences in 20 destinations across the world, with a robust pipeline of further projects. In such spectacular settings, Aman has honed its offering with its transformative influence on mind, body and spirit through harmoniously designed environments transporting guests out of their everyday lives.
In recent years, Aman has grown to offer its coveted lifestyle beyond the parameters of its havens. In 2018, the introduction of Aman Skincare continued the brand’s holistic influence, offering beautiful, scented formulas using powerful all-natural ingredients and inspired by Aman Spas. The introduction of Sva – a range of supplements designed to help maintain optimum health – and Aman Fine Fragrance in 2020 continued this journey, bringing Aman into the comfort of home. This sentiment was echoed in 2021, with the arrival of a new retail collection, The Essentials by Aman, comprising timeless ready-to-wear pieces that answer the needs of every Aman guest.
In 2023, this holistic lifestyle expands further, with the introduction of Aman Interiors, offering bespoke designed furniture items inspired by the world of Aman. Encompassing limited collections of timeless, contemporary furniture, as well as interior design and sourcing services for Aman’s residence owner community, Aman Interiors celebrates the brand’s impeccable design credentials.
