Peppers for downtown Melbourne

Mantra Group has announced it will open a luxury Peppers-branded property in Melbourne’s Docklands, designed by award-winning architects Elenberg Fraser, in 2015.

M Docklands will feature 186 apartments, two floors of hotel accommodation and ground floor retail space.

The five-star hotel will include an on-site restaurant, pool, gym and lobby with 24-hour reception and full-service concierge.

The 68-room hotel will be part of the $100 million M Docklands project at 677 La Trobe St, adjacent to gate seven at Etihad Stadium. The hotel will take out two levels of the 18-storey building.

Apart from the hotel, M Docklands includes residential apartments, serviced offices and shops. It is being developed by Capital Alliance Investment Group.

Construction is due to start early next year on M Docklands and the hotel is due to open in late 2015.

Mantra Group is to manage the five star hotel, choosing to operate under the group’s luxury Peppers brand.

“We are very particular about using the Peppers brand on the right property, and this development presents us with an excellent opportunity to secure a presence of appropriate scale and quality for Peppers in a prominent location and we are confident it will be embraced by both locals and visitors to Melbourne,” says Mantra Group chief executive officer Bob East.

Construction on M Docklands is scheduled to commence in June 2014 and has an expected completion date of mid 2016.
