Plans for $300m St Kilda Road Hotel

Melbourne-based developer Orchard Piper has teamed up again with the Carter Group  to transform a six-storey office building at 448 St Kilda Road into a $300-million hotel and apartment complex.

The plans call for:

  • A 17 story building
  • A five-star 108-key hotel
  • Around 55 apartments
  • A day-spa
  • Mezzanine restaurant and bar
  • A street-level cafe

Carter would remain landowners and Orchard Piper the developers in their fifth joint project.

The construction aims at servicing Melbourne’s major sporting and cultural events, such as the Formula One grand prix, the Australian open and the nearby National Gallery of Victoria.

The building’s exterior be clad with locally sourced, saw-cut bluestone, in recognition of St Kilda Road’s historical structures.
