New lifestyle hotel planned for Melbourne’s Southbank

A newbuild 199-room hotel will open on Clarke Street in Melbourne’s Southbank in 2020.

Developed by Newcity Development Group, the 69-storey mixed-use tower will also combine residential apartments and co-working spaces.

The hotel will feature a ground floor restaurant and bar, sprawling conference and event spaces, two swimming pools, a gym and yoga studio, as well as a rooftop observatory and sky garden. There will also be a Club Lounge located on level 66 of the tower, which will be available as a meeting and entertainment space.

Cre8tive Property is managing the hotel operator selection process and is calling upon hotel operators big and small with a lifestyle focus, to submit expressions of interest.

“This project in the heart of Southbank is one of the most inspiring developments the city has seen and Newcity Development is creating a space that is going to become a mecca for locals and guests to the city,” said Andrew Taylor, managing director of Cre8tive Property.

“Standing 69-storeys tall, the tower is not only going to transform the Southbank skyline, but it is going to bring the vibrancy that lifestyle hotels embody to the area and that in itself is incredibly exciting.”

The hotel is slated to open January 2024.
