Crown Melbourne’s new six-start hotel to touch Victoria’s skyline soon

Published on : Thursday, February 9, 2017

Melbourne's new six-start hotelCrown Melbourne has got the green signal to construct its new six-star hotel- a 90-storey tower that features 388 hotel rooms, visitor attractions and 708 residential apartments.

 

Premier Daniel Andrews joined Minister for Planning Richard Wynne at Southbank to make announcement.

 

“This is a bold transformation of Melbourne’s skyline that will build on our state’s reputation as the nation’s leader for tourism,” the Premier said.

 

This project is one of true state significance and will result in Melbourne becoming home to Australia’s tallest tower.

 

It will create 3000 direct and indirect jobs during construction – including for apprentices, helping them complete their training and secure well-paid jobs. Once complete, the project will sustain another 1000 ongoing operational jobs.

 

The economic benefits for Victoria set to stem from the project are estimated at $2.1 billion.

 

The tower’s design was subject to an international design competition, won by the firm WilkinsonEyre.
