Big Sheraton to overlook Elizabeth Quay

41-floor skyscraper to replace the New Esplanade Hotel.

CHRIS THOMSON

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.

New Sheraton Hotel to overlook Elizabeth Quay on The Esplanade PerthThe shiny new Sheraton tower would contain 196 hotel rooms and 89 apartments, 138 residential car parking bays and 67 commercial tenant car parking bays.

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.

    Cancelled?

    I know the megamart redevelopment on Roe/Beaufort St isn’t going ahead but how do you know this one won’t go ahead.

    Sheraton aren’t mickey mouse hoteliers…

    And this is now cancelled it would appear.
    As of last week.
    Not considered viable in this post boom economy.

    Lose the chunky podium and I quite like the rest of the design. Perth needs some more…sleek..skyscrapers.

    Agree with my namesake Andrew too, why not 50 levels?.

    Yep, let ’em build as high as they want in there. It’s already a concrete jungle, so that might ease development pressure on the ‘burbs.

    Sounds awesome! 🙂 When will we know when the project will be approved and how long does it take to be approved?

    Sheraton should consider building their hotel to 50 level luxury hotel….

  5. Steve says:

    Love it, but should be taller in an immediate vicinity with several other similar size towers.
    Around 200m would fill the gap nicely.
    As it is, no real reason why it should not be approved, and this city needs every development it can get.
