A $50 million hotel in Palmerston’s CBD has been given development approval, as Stage One of the Maluka Views development project.

The 161 room hotel, including 32 suites and 41 short stay apartments, will be behind The Hub on Roystonea Avenue, and is being created by local investors John ‘Foxy’ Robinson and Mick Burns.

Peter Chandler, Minister for Lands, Planning and the Environment, said that with two suburbs currently under construction and the area growing it’s crucial to utilise the CBD.

“This site has sat vacant for many years and the government has released it for development through our urban infill strategy which has identified 70 parcels of Crown land across the Territory which could yield up to 2,700 dwellings,” said Chandler.

“Hotel accommodation is under immense pressure, especially in the Dry, this development will bring online much needed rooms for the developing City of Palmerston.”

Stage Two of Maluka Views will be residentially-focused, with a mix of commercial, retail and alfresco dining to be offered.

Robinson said that they have confident in Palmerston’s growth.

“There are 50,000 people living in Palmerston and the Rural Area and there is nothing of this standard for them to access,” Robinson said of the decision to pour funds into the project.
