The 255-room Sydney Central Hotel will be extensively refurbished and expanded. The stage 2 DA Hotel extension in Sydney includes eight more floors and the development of 72 guestrooms, 760m2 of conferencing spaces, 90m2 bike storage/rental with end of trip facilities and 148m2 of retail area at ground level.
The owner’s vision for the site is to expand the existing footprint by a further 72 guestrooms. A 28% increase from the current inventory. At roof level, a much-anticipated and contemporary roof terrace will be provided as a secluded oasis in the CBD, overlooking the diverse Haymarket district. The entire development promotes innovation, connectivity and traffic activation to the surrounding context and enhances the existing ground floor carpark surfaces.
The site itself is located on the corner of Thomas Street and the underdeveloped southern end of the Goods Line, which is an important intersection between two culturally significant boulevards being heritage listed.
The project will breathe new life into the carpark facade, telling a story about the historically significant location whilst showcasing it’s unique and distinct sandstone arches. Using well-considered landscape designs, direct access to the Goods Line as well as adding a cafe/bar, the project will deliver an abundance of night activation opportunities.
Successful DA approval was given in Q4 of 2018.
