Oakwood will add a new luxury hotel and serviced apartment in the Victorian capital after signing a deal for the Oakwood Premier Melbourne, slated to open in Q1 2022. The expansion follows the recent announcement of Oakwood Hotel & Apartments Dandenong in April 2019.
Oakwood has properties in 95 countries globally, including in the United States, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Americas and Asia Pacific. It also operates Oakwood Hotel & Apartments in Brisbane.
Set within a newly developed 40-storey tower, Oakwood Premier Melbourne will comprise 154 hotel rooms and 238 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments that range from 35 to 65 square metres. Proposed facilities within Oakwood Premier Melbourne include an all-day dining restaurant, meeting venues, a lobby bar and fitness centre, as well as upscale retail spaces. Sky Bar Melbourne, a sky lounge offering spectacular views of the city, will take the evening tipple to new heights.
“Oakwood Premier is ideal for C-suite executives, well-established business owners and distinguished travellers, defined by its uncompromising, tailored service standards and prime downtown address. We are extremely proud to have the opportunity to introduce this luxury product to Melbourne’s prestigious Southbank Promenade, with the project being part of Australia’s largest urban renewal project at Fishermans Bend,” said Dean Schreiber, Interim Chief Executive Officer of Oakwood and Managing Director of Oakwood Asia Pacific.
Oakwood Premier Melbourne will be in close proximity to numerous corporate office buildings and key international and regional financial institutions, as well as the Melbourne Convention Centre.
