Developer Perri Projects will launch a boutique luxury hotel, restaurant and event space in South Melbourne on the corner of Moray and Dorcas Streets.

Perri Projects purchased a 700sqm site in 2005 and has purchased two adjoining sites since.

The site has been granted a planning permit by the City of Port Phillip Council.

Perri Projects managing director, David Scalzo said they are in early discussions with hospitality groups for partnerships in the restaurant and functions centre. 

"More than a hotel, we envisage this mixed-use development to be a lifestyle destination in South Melbourne including retail, food and beverage, and a rooftop function and events centre,” he said.

"There is a distinct lack of new, luxury hotel offerings in this area. The majority of existing hotel stock around St Kilda Road and South Melbourne is now ageing considerably so we’ve identified a real gap in the market for quality, bespoke hotels for business and high-end leisure travellers.

The hotel, designed by, Plus Architecture, will boast three street frontages.

Plus Architecture Director Ian Briggs said the façade was imagined as a collection of crystalline blocks in which gritty concrete frames are juxtaposed with vapour-like glazing to create a dream-like presence.

The hotel is aimed at the business premium market and features a pool, gym and business centre.
