Boutique hotel Veriu set for Melbourne’s Queen Victoria Market

A new-build Veiru hotel is scheduled to open in late 2022 as part of a $450 million development adjacent to the Queen Victoria Market Precinct.

“We see wonderful opportunities in the market currently to become a key amenity component to larger mixed-use developments like Queen Victoria Market, which brings much-needed community infrastructure and facilities to the neighbourhood,” Veriu chief executive Zed Sanjana said.

The Sydney-based group has further plans to expand in Melbourne with a new 95-key hotel in Collingwood and a further two hotel sites in the pipeline.

The group says it has plans to add more than 500 keys to the Melbourne market across the next five years in suburbs such as Carlton, Prahran, Richmond, Windsor, South Yarra, South Melbourne as well as the CBD.
