A development application has been submitted by Barr Kedron Pty Ltd for the construction of a new 173-room, eight storey hotel for 523 Hamilton Road, Chermside.
Designed by Cottee Parker, the project intends to provide suites, rather than self-contained units, to tourists, travellers or persons associated with the adjacent Prince Charles Hospital / St Vincent’s Private Hospital (i.e. visitors, out patients and medical professionals).
The short-term accommodation is proposed as suites (as compared to serviced apartments), with the operator to be a major brand.
According to the development application, the development will provide a diversity of accommodation that is needed in this location.
“There are very few short-term accommodation options within Brisbane outside of the inner city area and Airport and therefore this development presents the opportunity to broaden the short-term offering in a well-located position in proximity of the Chermside Principal Centre and the Prince Charles Hospital / St Vincent’s Private Hospital.” – Development application.
The hotel would feature guest and administration facilities including café, function spaces, pool and gym, rooftop recreation space, and manager’s office.
