Upon completion in 2021, Yoma Central expects to be anchored by the restored former headquarters of the Burma Railway Company, one of Yangon’s oldest and most cherished colonial-era buildings.

Yoma Central plans to also feature two Grade A office towers and a collection of luxury private homes, all of which will be connected seamlessly by a retail podium.

“Given its local expertise and strategic vision for development in Myanmar, Yoma Land is an ideal partner for debuting the Westin brand in this market,” said Paul Foskey, Chief Development Officer, Asia Pacific, Marriott International. “The signing of The Westin Yangon marks a significant milestone in Marriott International’s continued growth in Southeast Asia and we look forward to partnering with Yoma Land in building on this momentum.”

The Westin Yangon is located approximately 18 kilometers from Yangon International Airport.
