A prime site in Haymarket with development approval for a 152 room hotel has been listed for sale.

The 670 sqm site at 13 Parker Street secured council approval for the $46 million project in June. 

The InterContinental Hotels Group will be managing the hotel under the Hotel Indigo banner. It is set to open in 2021.

Set near Market City, the approval is for a 16 storey, 152 room hotel with an approved gross floor area of 5,695 sqm. 

The designs by Bates Smart were lodged last year, initially with 168 rooms. The hotel will include five suites, rooftop terraces for meetings and events with views over the city and a gym. 

Hotel Indigo Sydney Central’s design will draw its unique identity from the neighbourhood’s rich heritage and the nuances of the site.

The cantilevered northern wing will provide a backdrop to its neighbour, the heritage-listed Corporation Building, while a grand artwork will become a distinctive external feature, celebrating the hotel’s location within the Haymarket entertainment precinct.

Inside, the design will ensure the hotel fits naturally into the neighbourhood, telling stories of the local culture by weaving together rich materials, colour palette and custom pieces from local artists, photographers and furniture makers. 

Tesltra previously owned the block before selling it for $27 million in 2015.

CBRE's Danny Shi, Andrew Jackson and Tao Shi are marketing the site in conjunction with Colliers International agents Steam Leung, Karen Wales and Joseph Lin.

InterContinental Hotels Group's Abhijay Sandilya said he expects the hotel to become one of Sydney's leading boutique hotels.

“Hotel Indigo Sydney Central will be IHG’s first lifestyle-branded boutique hotel in Sydney, providing its signature ‘effortless authenticity’ to guests visiting Australia’s largest business and tourist hub," he said.

"It’s also the third Hotel Indigo signing for Australia, demonstrating the appetite for a hotel that offers a local and unique experience as well as the reassurance of a global hotel chain.” 

“We expect Hotel Indigo Sydney Central to become one of the city’s leading boutique hotels, making its mark thanks to its unique, eclectic style.

"It will perfectly complement our existing midscale to luxury IHG assets across this landmark city, building IHG’s scale in Australia’s largest city.”

Launched in 2004, Hotel Indigo is the world’s first globally branded boutique hotel brand.

It launched in Asia Pacific in January 2015 with the opening of Hotel Indigo Bangkok Wireless Road, Thailand, followed by the opening of Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong, Singapore in July 2016 and then Hotel Indigo Bali Seminyak Beach in late 2017.
