Australian developer Flagship Property Holdings has been appointed by Plenary Group to develop a 331-room, 20 storey four-star hotel as part of the $300 million expansion of the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) and South Wharf Precinct.

The hotel is due to be completed in the first half of 2018. Probuild, architects Woods Bagot and NH Architecture will also work on the project.

Flagship Property Holdings chief executive officer Steve Wise said Flagship and Plenary previously partnered on the Hilton Melbourne South Wharf hotel, developed as part of the Melbourne Convention Centre and South Wharf DFO Retail Precinct.

“The MCEC is one of Australasia’s leading conference centres, so we’re excited to be given the opportunity to develop the new hotel in conjunction with our project partners as part of the Centre’s broader expansion," he said.

“We’re now looking forward to progressing plans and commencing on-site works for the new hotel, which is going to play a key role in helping MCEC attract even larger and more diverse events to the city.”
