Cumming is Development Manager for London EDITION

SAN DIEGO—Cumming, based here, is the development manager for the London EDITION hotel, just opened by Marriott International and Ian Schrager Company. London is the first EDITION-branded property to open since the brand’s 2011 Istanbul debut.

Reporting directly to Marriott’s corporate leadership team, Cumming has provided overall corporate program management of the Marriott International-owned EDITION-branded projects and project level development management on the London luxury lifestyle hotel, which occupies the former historic Berners Hotel.

The London EDITION hotel features 173 guestrooms, a Jason Atherton-inspired restaurant, four bars, a special function space, meeting rooms and a modernized lobby that accentuates the building’s original historic character. Located in central London’s Fitzrovia neighborhood, the London EDITION brings together the integrity and character of a historic building with Ian Schrager Company’s sophisticated design.

The EDITION hotel brand was created by Marriott International in partnership with renowned boutique hotelier Ian Schrager. Cumming is currently supporting Marriott International and Ian Schrager Company with three new EDITION-branded hotels. Overall corporate program management of the Marriott International-owned EDITION hotels and project level development management is being provided on the London and Miami projects, with program-level support being provided on the New York property. All three projects include extensive renovations and conversions of historic properties. The Miami Beach EDITION is replacing the former Seville Hotel, and the New York property will be located in the historic MetLife Clock Tower on Madison Avenue—both scheduled to come online in 2014.
