New hotel for Docklands
Docklands is getting a new 176-room 4.5 star hotel.
The new Docklands Sheraton Four Points is to be built next year on the corner of Harbour Esplanade and Dudley St in the Digital Harbour precinct.
The 37-storey building will also include 360 apartments, a 200-seat restaurant, pool, gym, conference centre and 255 car spaces.
Digital Harbour director David Napier said Starwood Four Points Sheraton had signed on for the 176-room hotel as well as 60 serviced apartments.
He said, of the remaining 300 apartments, Digital Harbour already had between 130 and 140 registrations of interest.
Planning Minister Matthew Guy approved the $130 million hotel and residential building late last month and said the building would complete the Dudley St and Harbour Esplanade gateway of Docklands.
“I have approved plans that will ensure the development meets high quality urban design standards including active street levels and an open space plaza, which will link Docklands to E-Gate across Dudley St,” Mr Guy said.
The development will generate more than 480 jobs during construction and an estimated 125 ongoing jobs in the hotel and associated facilities, residential maintenance and support staff.
Mr Napier said it was hoped construction of the building would start in February 2014.
