Melbourne gets yet another new hotel

A hotel group has secured the management agreement to operate a landmark new-build 46 storey hotel in the heart of Southbank in Melbourne.

Operating as Mantra on City Road, the 469 apartment development will bring bold design and opulent finishes to Melbourne’s vibrant Southbank arts and entertainment district.

The hotel, which is currently under construction, is being developed by prolific Melbourne developer BPM and will be managed by Mantra Group when it opens in late March 2018.

Designed by architects Elenberg Frader (building) and Hecker Guthrie (interior design), Mantra on City Road is ideally located on the corner of Clarendon Street and City Road in Southbank and will feature 469 superbly appointed one, two and three bedroom apartments with world-class digital connectivity, along with a range of inviting guest spaces including a pool, gymnasium, and an indoor winter garden with private dining spaces and a guest lounge.

Chief executive officer Bob East said the hotel will cater to the strong demand for high-quality accommodation in Melbourne.

“Melbourne’s hotel market is currently experiencing unprecedented levels of growth and tourism forecasts are consistently positive with the high occupancy environment underpinning robust annual growth,” said Mr East.

“Mantra on City Road presents us with an excellent opportunity to secure a presence of scale and quality in a prominent location and grow our offering in one of Melbourne’s best performing metropolitan sub-markets, which boasts established and varied accommodation demand drivers.

“We’re thrilled to partner with BPM on this strategic and significant new development for Melbourne, one which will be a high-end addition to our ever-growing portfolio of Mantra properties.”

With Melbourne’s central business district, Crown Casino, the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, and the city’s finest shopping and dining precincts all within walking distance, Mantra on City Road is ideally suited for both business and leisure guests.

This announcement comes just weeks after the Group announced another hotel signing in Melbourne – the hotel and letting apartment component of Saraceno Group’s $1 billion mixed-use M-City development in Clayton.
