Multiplex has completed M&L Hospitality’s makeover of 161 Sussex Street in Sydney's Darling Harbour.

The former Four Points by Sheraton Sydney was rebranded recently to Hyatt Regency Sydney, marking the Hyatt Regency’s return to Sydney.

The redevelopment included refurbishment of the existing hotel, a new 3,667 square metre convention centre and a 25-level tower including 13 new hotel levels and 10 levels of A-grade high rise commercial office space.

The additional 25-storey tower has added 222 new guest rooms to what was already Australia’s largest hotel, bringing the total number of rooms to 892.

A lot of construction took place over the top of the Western Distributor Freeway, a major feeder road from the Sydney CBD to the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

David Ghannoum, regional managing director at Multiplex, said a big challenge was building over an operating freeway and in a live hotel environment and care was taken to complete the works with minimal disruption to the 80,000 vehicles using the Western Distributor daily and the 600-700 guests staying at the hotel each night.

Work started in December 2014 and took two years to finish.
