The Carr architectural practice has welcomed the completion of the United Places Botanic Gardens Hotel.

Marketed as an "intimate, highly considered hotel experience" the hotel opened recently at 157-159 Domain Road, South Yarra.

Room rates start at $650 per night.

It is the project of hoteliers Darren Rubinstien and Richard Rogers. 

The evelopment was where the former post office and newsagent were located.

With only 12 suites, United Places is marketed as set to become Melbourne's most exclusive hotel.

"The hotel’s exuberance comes from the carefully calibrated floor plans, surface integrity and a superlative level of execution,” noted Stephen Todd, Design Editor, Australian Financial Review.

The property located at 159 Domain Road South Yarra last sold in October of 2010 for $3.175 million.

In 2014 it was reported VCAT had overturned the City Council refusal to grant a planning permit to 157-159 Domain Road.

It's 2012 initial planning application was made to the Melbourne City Council for a permit to demolish the existing building and construct a three-storey building accommodating a ground floor café/shop, first floor tavern and second floor restaurant.

A combined patron capacity of 650 was proposed.

The planning application also sought permission for the reduction of the Planning Scheme’s car parking requirement to zero and a waiver of the Planning Scheme’s loading and unloading requirement.

Its notice of the application saw 352 objections received, and plans substantially amended.
