Hotel for Albert Park golf course?

A 30-storey hotel could be built on Melbourne’s Albert Park Golf Course as part of a redevelopment plan by Chinese developer Wang Hua’s Jeshing Group.

Albert Park Golf Management P/L has declined comment on the plan, according to The Age, but Victoria’s minister for environment, Ryan Smith, said no transfer proposal for the lease had been made to him. Any sale of the course lease by operators Albert Park Golf Management P/L must be approved by the state government and the board of Parks Victoria, which manages Albert Park.

Jeshing Group is involved in winery, golf course and residential estates around Melbourne. It is understood that its plans for the Albert Park lease would include an indoor driving range, reception centre as well as the hotel.

Keith Murton, director and shareholder of Albert Park Golf Management P/L, declined to comment on whether a sale was under way.

The pending sale comes as the state government and Parks Victoria have begun work on a masterplan that will guide development in Albert Park for the next 20 years, according to The Age.

“Private-public partnerships and philanthropic investment in the park, facilities and its future are certainly priorities the planning will be taking into consideration,” Parks Victoria district manager Ross Williamson said in September.
