Adina hotel finds home in Southbank

13 Jul 2017

Adina hotel finds home in Southbank Image

Constructions will start later this year on a new Adina apartment hotel at 55 Southbank Boulevard, adding 220 more units to TFE Hotels’ Melbourne portfolio.

It will span 16 levels, incorporating an existing six-storey office building.

Designed by Bates Smart and developed by Hume Partners Property using a mass timber construction technology, the Adina apartment hotel is said to become one of Australia’s tallest timber buildings.

The use of carbon-neutral timber product, which is much lighter than steel and concrete, reduces the production and transport costs. Bates Smart said it would enable a “sustainable construction”.

Managing director at Hume Partners Property, Scott Davies, said: “Achieving 220 apartments in carbon-neutral timber product versus 135 rooms in traditional steel and concrete form enabled us to meet the requirements of the hotel market but to also be in a position to materially compress the construction program and leave existing commercial office tenant in situ whilst construction is undertaken.”

TFE Hotels is planning five new hotels in Melbourne, including transforming the historic Pentridge Prison in Coburg into an Adina apartment hotel.

The Southbank Adina is expected to open doors in 2019.
