HYATT has announced plans to develop a second Centric property in Australia, having signed a management agreement with the developers of a 280-room hotel planned for Melbourne’s CBD.
The Hyatt Centric Melbourne is slated to open in 2020, located in Downie Street in the city’s south-west corner.
It will follow the Hyatt Centric Hobart currently under construction and set for opening early next year (TD 11 Jan, 2017).
To be built by developers Little Projects, the Melbourne property will include a restaurant “infused with locally inspired fare” and a rooftop bar offering views of the Yarra River and Southbank.
“Melbourne’s cosmopolitan vibe makes it an ideal destination for a Hyatt Centric hotel,” said Hyatt Hotels Corporate Asia Pacific group president David Udell.
The property will join sister hotels Park Hyatt Melbourne, Grand Hyatt Melbourne and Hyatt Place Essendon Fields.
