Century Group Aus has secured Australia's first St. Regis hotel at its $800m Flinders Bank development on the Yarra River.

The five star hotel brand's commitment to Flinders Bank will ensure residents benefit from exclusive access to the St. Regis' prestige club facilities.

With frontages to Spencer and Flinders Streets, the 33-storey tower will be the tallest of Flinders Bank's three buildings.

St. Regis Melbourne's 168 luxury guest rooms and suites will occupy levels 2 to 11, providing guests with panoramic views of the Yarra River or Melbourne skyline.

World-leading interior design studio, Chada has designed the interiors working closely with Fender Katsalidis Architects, who are responsible for the architectural design of Flinders Bank.

St. Regis Melbourne will join, Flinders Banks' two other residential towers currently at sales and registration. The whole development is set to deliver 650 residences and 2,100 sqm of retail, on the gateway site opposite Batman Park previously occupied by the former Convention Centre.

Century Group Aus anticipates St. Regis Melbourne will become an instant and stylish icon on the skyline, and an integral part of a vibrant pedestrian precinct and plaza along Siddeley Street, upon completion in 2022. 

Construction on the whole Flinders Bank project is set to commence next year and will comprise the following:

  • Tower One: 26 levels with a ground + three-level podium. 190 apartments - located on the eastern side of the site bounded by Spencer Street.
  • Tower Two / St. Regis Melbourne: 33 levels with a ground + four-level podium. 168 luxury hotel rooms and 237 premium apartments - located on the western side of the site bounded by Flinders Street.
  • Tower Three: 26 levels with a ground + three-level podium - located on the western side of the site. Apartments mix and number of apartments to be determined.

What they say...

This signing is an indication of the investment community’s confidence in the Australian market, where we are seeing a growing demand for premium lodgings.

The St. Regis Melbourne will be an outstanding addition to our strong and growing footprint in the region, where we are on track to boast the largest portfolio of upper upscale and luxury hotels and resorts, with two-thirds of the new supply pipeline.

- Richard Crawford, Senior Director of Hotel Development in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific

 

We are honoured that Flinders Bank will be the address for one of the most exceptional hotel and hospitality experiences in Australia, through The St. Regis Melbourne.

Flinders Bank will offer the pinnacle of luxury experiences for guests as well as residents. With its breathtaking views of the Yarra River, resort style amenity and landmark architecture, Flinders Bank will be a fitting gateway into the world’s most liveable city.

The way we live is changing, and today we want all of life’s luxuries and necessities on our doorstep. To cater for these new urban lifestyles, we wanted to offer our residents some of the most generous, thoughtful and well-designed amenity in Melbourne. We want Flinders Bank to be a haven and a home for all that our residents enjoy.

- Connie Wu, Executive Director Century Group Aus

Minister will most likely still approve it - might knock a level or two off the residential buildings. My biggest gripe with it is how similar the residential buildings are design-wise.
