The plan of the hotel was approved by the Hobart City Council in 2016. The proposed 63-metre high hotel has been designed by JAWS Architects’ Neal Mackintosh. According to sources, the five-star hotel will have a restaurant and a bar.
The original design of the hotel had the height of 73 metre, which was later reduced to 63 metre by the developer Elizabeth Tasmania Pty Ltd, in order to gain the approval.
According to the developer, the 221-roomed Hyatt Centric hotel would attract at least $18 million additional amount of money annually from the visitor spending.
The area vice president for the Pacific region of Hyatt Hotel, Robert Dawson informed that this hotel would be the first Hyatt Centric Hotel in the country. He also informed that the opportunity to open a Hyatt Centric hotel in Hobart was the one that they had to take and they believe the Hyatt Centric brand is ideally suited to capture Tasmania’s unique culture and to provide savvy travellers with a perfect launch pad to explore Hobart and the wider region.
The construction work for the hotel would start from the middle of 2017 and the hotel giant aims to open the hotel for the travellers in the early half of 2019.
