EXCLUSIVE: International hotel chain Sheraton wants to erect a 41-level luxury hotel on the doorstep of Elizabeth Quay.
If approved, the pictured Sheraton would rise on The Esplanade, across the street from where Elizabeth Quay is slowly taking shape.
The $110 million hotel would be built on the site of the existing 10-floor New Esplanade Hotel which would be demolished.
The hotel component would house 139 x 33sqm king rooms, 32 x 31 sqm double rooms, 15 x 46sqm junior suites, nine 45sqm universal access rooms, and one 64 sqm executive suite for when Lady Gaga comes to town.
Levels 40 and 41 would each have one 182 sqm, four-bedroom, four-bathroom apartments with 54sqm balcony, one two-bedroom plus study and two-bathroom apartment with balcony, and three two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartments with balconies.
The eleventh floor would house a ballroom, again to cater for the specialist requirements of Lady Gaga.
The Ritz Carlton chain has confirmed it will build a hotel at Elizabeth Quay proper.
