Crystalbrook Vincent opens at Brisbane’s Howard Smith Wharves

Crystalbrook Vincent has opened in Brisbane’s Howard Smith Wharves marking Crystalbrook Collection’s seventh property to open in three years.

Formerly known as The Fantauzzo, Crystalbrook Vincent will feature an increased focus on sustainability.

“We’re introducing a single-use plastic-free environment and 100 per cent waste-free bathrooms where everything is reusable, recyclable or biodegradable,” said Crystalbrook Vincent CEO Geoff York.

“We’re working to minimise our food carbon footprint by ensuring that at least 80 per cent of all produce served within the hotel is sourced within a three-hour radius and we’re embracing technology to reduce the need for waste, such as, paperless check in and check out and in-room tablet control centres.”

The hotel will retain its partnership with namesake Vincent Fantauzzo with over 500 pieces of the Australian painter’s artworks featured throughout the six-story hotel.

Jeremy Nordkamp will lead Crystalbrook Vincent as general manager, following his most recent stint at Crystalbrook Riley in Cairns and as the opening GM of Brisbane’s Calile Hotel.

“I’m thrilled to be continuing my journey with Crystalbrook Collection as we grow the portfolio and lead the way in five-star sustainable hospitality,” said Nordkamp.

“Brisbane has taken giant leaps in the hospitality scene in recent years and I’m excited to be working with a fantastic group of professionals elevating this destination hotel to new heights.”
