New Quest to set the standard

31 Jan 2019

New Quest to set the standard Image

Docklands has further cemented itself as Melbourne’s favourite place to stay with the opening of the 221-apartment Quest NewQuay.

Situated in Caravel Lane, the business is jointly operated by Daniel Hibberd and Stacy Andronikos. The Hibberd family are Docklands pioneers, having established the suburb’s first Quest in Bourke St in 2005. Mr Andronikos is a new-comer but is rapidly establishing himself as a contributor – as evidenced by his new voluntary role as an executive member of the Docklands Chamber of Commerce.

But while new to our suburb, Mr Andronikos is no stranger to the industry and is expert on the marketing side of things. He has made a conscious decision to play to his strengths and has appointed experienced managers for the day-to-day operational side of things.

He is joined by Stuart David as general manager and Matthew Camilleri as rooms division manager.

The new Quest is a glittering showcase and is certain to set new standards of accommodation in the industry. For starters, it has the highest number of two and three-bedroom apartments in and around the CBD. This is further strengthened by flexible design, which gives management the ability to convert single-bedroom apartments into multi-units.

Even the studio apartments are generously sized and appointed and nearly all units have balconies. Every room has a view and double-glazing as well as king-sized beds are standard throughout.

With an opening date of February 2, Mr Andronikos was confident of filling the facility from day one. He said the demand for apartments of such quality just wasn’t being met in the market.

And, while he’d love to sell out from the get-go, it will come at a personal price – he’s promised his staff should that happen in the first month of operation, he will walk in his business suit the short distance to Victoria Harbour and jump in!

Docklands News has asked for prior warning of this event, so watch out for an interesting photo in our March edition!
