Punthill Essendon North opens its doors


The Veriu Group has opened its latest property Punthill Essendon North in the heart of Melbourne’s inner north west.

The 40-apartment hotel offers a mix of modern studio and one-bedroom apartments along with comprehensive conference and meeting facilities and on-site parking.

“We’re extremely pleased to have added Punthill Essendon North to our existing portfolio, with the hotel specifically situated to take advantage of a significant corporate catchment area in Melbourne’s North, currently somewhat underserviced in terms of quality corporate accommodation,” said Veriu Group CEO Zed Sanjana.


“We believe that business travellers are increasingly looking for more unique and localised accommodation experiences within these corporate hubs.”

The Group is expecting another three openings in 2023 and by mid-year will have a further six sites under construction across Australia.

“We see a huge opportunity to become one of Australia’s largest apartment hotel operators, while still maintaining a unique and localised feel at each of our properties,” said Sanjana.
