Cbus Property seeks to sell part of 447 Collins Street

Cbus Property has appointed agent Savills to handle the sale of the hotel portion of their pending 447 Collins Street development.

With the overall value of the urban renewal project tipped to exceed $1.25 billion, Cbus Property will look to capitalise upon the booming Melbourne hotel sector by offering the pre-purchase of a new 294 room 5 star luxury hotel which forms part of the overall development.

The project has maintained a high degree of public interest of late owing to the project's design impetus and the altogether public manner in which its planning process has transpired.

With the hotel component designated a 435 Collins Street address, the successful buyer will inherit the freehold title over the property and can expect Cbus Property to oversee the turn-key delivery of the hotel with a targeted completion date of Q4 2019.
