From Kazakhstan to Abu Dhabi to Makkah, emerging markets throughout the globe continue to be hot targets for the biggest players in the global hospitality sector. This expansion often includes the combination of a hotel or resort with branded, full-ownership residences operated by the hotel manager. While these types of mixed-use projects are commonplace in many North American cities and resort areas, their presence in other parts of the world is relatively novel.

The proliferation of hotel-branded residential projects is driven in part by the robust economic growth of natural-resource rich emerging markets and the resulting wealth creation this has brought.
