Construction has begun on what will become Australia’s largest Quest property, Quest NewQuay, in Melbourne's Docklands.

Quest NewQuay features apartment hotel accommodation and is marketed towards business travellers.

Councillor Arron Wood, Acting Lord Mayor of the City of Melbourne said this new Quest development at NewQuay is great news for the Docklands.

"It’s no secret that I am one of the most vocal advocates for the Docklands," he said.

"Tourism continues to grow and thrive in the Docklands and I have no doubt this new hotel will be at capacity when it opens.

Paul Constantinou, chairman, Quest Apartment Hotels said Quest NewQuay is in line with the company’s national growth strategy and reinforces its commitment to meeting the needs of emerging inner urban business centres.

“With Melbourne’s accommodation sector consistently receiving occupancy rates higher than 80%, Quest NewQuay’s location will be a highly appealing accommodation choice for visitors to Melbourne," he said.

"Being only 20 minutes from Melbourne Airport and connected to Melbourne’s CBD by a free 10-minute tram ride, NewQuay is well positioned to cater to Quest’s key customer, the extended-stay business traveller."

The property will feature 221 studios, one and two bedroom apartments and conference rooms, a business lounge, gymnasium and outdoor terrace with barbeque area. It is expected to open in 2019.
