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.
