Excerpt from article posted by Mark Baljak, 07/03/2017.
Melbourne's dynamic hotel sector continues to see new deals done, further expanding the lengthy queue of short stay accommodation projects in development around the city.

After opening their first Melbourne outlet in Docklands at the turn of 2016, Peppers will take on a new Southbank tower as part of parent company Mantra Group's aggressive expansion plan throughout Australian and New Zealand (link is external). The plan sees Peppers Southbank as one of five new hotels for Mantra Group in the region, with 900 new rooms in total planned.

Peppers Southbank will be sited at 64-68 Clerendon Street, currently a two level commercial building across a 412sqm site. In anticipation of a late 2018 opening date, preliminary demolition has begun onsite.
Although garnering 63 objections (link is external) during the planning process, 64-68 Clarendon Street received approval during late 2015 for a residential hotel tower. The building's overall appearance has been altered from earlier images, with a cleaner facade, defined podium to Clarendon Street and additional floors added, slightly boosting the overall room count to 165.

Point Polaris are also involved at a project management level (link is external), with Peppers Southbank's development value slated as $60 million.

With the completion of demolition, site works began in late July, 2017.

As reported in The Age late last month speculation is growing that developer Cbus Property is leading the charge to acquire a combined development site at 140-150 Queen Street and 27 McKillop Street. This would follow what would appear to be a pre-emptive purchase of a neighbouring site at 423 Bourke Street, which an 11-storey office block currently occupies.

The Victorian Government has announced it will ban the use of aluminium cladding panels that have a polyethylene core of more than 30% and expanded polystyrene will also be banned on buildings with 3 or more levels. The changes were announced by the Planning Minister, Richard Wynne, on Saturday morning along with new guidelines for building surveyors.

The various spaces and elements which combine to form RMIT's New Academic Street (NAS) have progressively begun to open to students and visitors alike. I was recently fortunate enough to be part of an informal group tour through the completed spaces within NAS, led by Harrison and White which had a hand in the project.

Comment There's much to admire about Rodney Maddock's advocacy piece in The Conversation - ' Our growing big cities need new centres of employment - here's Melbourne's chance ' - the three projects he advocates for have been in the public domain for quite a while now.
