Is Nine Network purchasing controversial Melbourne hotel?

Known as the scene of several high profile crimes, the Gatwick hotel in St Kilda could be featured on an upcoming TV renovation, according to reports.

AAP said land title documents point to a caveat by Micjoy, a company tied to Nine Entertainment. However, the network has so far refused to comment, as have the present owners and managers.

Accom providers and retailers near the property have lamented it for many years, citing its notoriety as a reason for stagnant local business. The hotel is known to many as a shelter for homeless people, having done so for more than half a century.

It was put up for sale in 2015 as an attempt to rejuvenate the area and reduce crime but was taken off the market again in October 2016.

At the time, co-owner Yvette Kelly told Fairfax Media: “It’s no longer on the market… but like any person, if someone offered us a good price we’d probably take it.”
