Today [22 September] Quest Serviced Apartments opened a brand new property in the Northern Territory – Quest Berrimah; ideally positioned to meet increasing demand from the corporate sector for high quality, long-stay accommodation in Darwin’s eastern suburbs as a result of significant investment and development in the area.
Quest CEO, Zed Sanjana said strengthening Quest’s presence in the Northern Territory was an important part of the serviced apartment operator’s growth strategy, especially given the unprecedented level of activity currently underway. “The Northern Territory has experienced impressive growth over the past decade, driven primarily by defence, mining, manufacturing, construction, tourism, and retail/wholesale trade. The territory boasts a strong pipeline of major projects including the Ichthys LNG Project and a Marine Supply Base, which will secure Darwin’s position as an oil and gas hub,” said Mr Sanjana. “The territory is positioned to be an important driver of Australia’s economic growth over the next century. In particular Darwin and its surrounding suburbs are key to Quest’s strategy, with major growth industries including: health, construction, education and training,” Mr Sanjana continued.
“Quest Berrimah franchisees – Mark Lisiecki, and Richard and Trisha Hartshorn – have done a remarkable job in getting Quest Berrimah ready to open its doors today and I have no doubt the property will be a great success, maintaining Quest’s reputation for high quality, long-stay accommodation,” Mr Sanjana concluded.
Quest Berrimah’s franchisees – Mark Lisiecki, and Richard and Trisha Hartshorn – were thrilled to open the property’s doors today, delighted with the outcome of months of hard work and preparation.
“As the property is just 8kms away from the Darwin Airport and only a 15-minute drive from Darwin’s CBD, it is the ideal choice for the corporate traveller, providing quick access to the Darwin Corporate Park, Berrimah Business Park, Wishart Business Precinct and Winnelie Industrial Precinct. We are also within close proximity to the Hidden Valley Motorsports Complex, East Arm Wharf, Royal Darwin Hospital and Robertson Barracks,” Mr Lisiecki said.
“In addition, our guests can experience the natural wonders of the beautiful Top End, as the property is located only moments from Charles Darwin National Park, a few hours’ drive away from the famous national parks of Kakadu and Litchfield, and just a boat-ride from the unique Tiwi Islands,” continued Mr Lisiecki.
Located at 4 Berrimah Rd, Quest Berrimah was developed by PTM Group, the same developer with which Quest partnered for the Quest Parap property. PTM Group managing director, Tony Papadakis expressed his enthusiasm for the new property and continued partnership with Quest.
