Leonardo DiCaprio is investing in a green-certified hotel in Herzliya.
The Oscar-winning actor and prominent environmental activist will be joining the Hagag Group as a partner in the hotel, according to a statement from the company on Sunday.
The hotel, which will be built along the Herzliya Marina, will be constructed according to the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Planning) standards of the US Green Building Council.
“Green environmental development is a significant part of building communities that work in partnership with nature and not against it,”
DiCaprio said. “As we seek to create a future that heads off the most severe effects of climate change, we need projects that push for new developments in environmental design… This project, designed by David Rockwell and which meets the gold standard of LEED, will serve as a model for environmentally friendly hotel development for the entire world.”
DiCaprio will assist in the marketing and branding of the project, Jewish Business News reported.
The luxury hotel includes 200 suites in two six-floor buildings with a lagoon set between the buildings and a private pool attached to some of the rooms.
