Located in the heart of the trendy inner-city suburb of Collingwood, the hotel is just minutes from the famed Smith Street – voted the Coolest Street in the World in 2021 by Time Out.

The purpose-built hotel offers stylish rooms among a range of shared amenities, including a communal kitchen, social lounge and guest laundry. The property will be offered for sale encumbered by a lease to one of Asia-Pacific’s largest hotel groups, The Ascott Limited, under their co-living brand lyf.

CBRE Hotels’ Tom Gibson, Michael Simpson and Scott Callow and Gross Waddell ICR’s Danny Clark, Michael Gross and Glenn Ye are managing the sale via an Expression of Interest Campaign closing October 5, 2023.

 “This is an excellent opportunity to secure a brand-new hotel asset in one of Australia’s best performing RevPAR markets, leased to one of Singapore’s largest hospitality companies, The Ascott Limited,” Mr Gibson said.

 “Melbourne has proven its resilience as a hotel market in 2023, emerging as one of Australia’s strongest RevPAR growth markets after a 30.8 percent increase for the year-to-date through July 2023 when compared to the same period through 2022,” Mr Gibson added.

Coupled with the secure lease tenure to a global accommodation powerhouse, this investment offers security and longevity for astute investors.”
