Crown Melbourne to Build Six-Star Hotel on Casino Precinct

James Packer’s Crown Melbourne is going ahead with plans to construct a 90-storey, six-star hotel. The hotel will be added to its Southbank casino precinct at a cost of $1.5 billion. The contest to design the hotel was won by British architects Wilkinson Eyre.

The hotel will include 388 luxury rooms and a publically accessible restaurant, lounge and garden terrace, located at the top of its glass tower. The tower has been designed to stand 317m tall, taller than the Eureka Tower in Southbank which measures 297m, as well as higher than the Q1 Tower on the Gold Coast which stands at 312m.

“Wilkinson Eyre have designed a beautiful and elegant building that is destined to be an important addition to the Melbourne skyline,” announced James Packer.

The Queensbridge hotel tower is expected to create more than 3,000 jobs during its construction and 1,000 permanent jobs once it has been completed. In addition, according to Mr Packer, “the development will also assist Melbourne in attracting more high net worth tourists, reinforcing the city’s appeal as a destination for important international conferences, sporting and cultural events.”

While the architect has been chosen, the tower is still subject to planning approval and Melbourne city councillor, Stephen Mayne has suggested that the development may be held up by the planning laws and height limits of the state government, as well as federal government restrictions concerning the height of buildings under a flight path. The government will also need to consider the size of the proposal and its impact on the state.
