Hotel proposed for Victoria Harbour

The proposed 4.5 star, 280-room hotel would be located on a waterfront site between ANZ and a residential development currently awaiting planning approval.

“There is strong demand for hotels in Melbourne and we’ve been approached by a number of hotel investors,” Lend Lease’s managing director of urban regeneration, Jonathan Emery, said.

The hotel would feature conference, wellness and rooftop food and beverage facilities, according to Lend Lease.

“We’re in the early stages of exploring options for the site to achieve the best outcome for Victoria Harbour. A hotel, in this prime Collins St riverfront location, would be a major addition to the Docklands’ hospitality offering with quality accommodation for both tourists and business travellers,” Mr Emery said.

The proposed hotel is just one of a number of hotels expected to be built in Docklands over the next few years.

Singaporean developer Hiap Hoe has already begun construction of a hotel at NewQuay, while Digital Harbour’s The Altus will also include a hotel component. The M Docklands building currently under construction on LaTrobe St will also include a Peppers hotel.

“A luxury hotel within Victoria Harbour would be a welcome addition to the emerging hotel offer in Docklands,” Places Victorian general manager Simon Wilson said.

The expression of interest process for potential investors is being managed by Savills and closes on June 5.

Managing director of Savills Hotels Michael Simpson said there had been significant interest from investors.

“Given this opportunity enables investors to select their preferred operator, we expect the opportunity to gain strong interest from investors and owner-operators alike,” Mr Simpson said.
