New multimillion-dollar Mantra hotel for Melbourne suburb
A new multimillion-dollar hotel development in Melbourne’s north, Mantra Epping Hotel, is currently underway in one of Melbourne’s fastest growing areas.
Developed by Too Build and to be operated by Mantra Group when it opens, the 214-room, four-star hotel has been designed to capitalise on both the history of the northern suburbs and the unique attributes of Epping today.
The $70 million project will feature 214 guest rooms, a café and restaurant, bespoke brew house, conference and meeting facilities and gymnasium, as well as an open car park with 143 marked bays and secure bicycle storage.
Too Build Managing Director Ian Wilson says, “The location of the hotel right near Melbourne’s new wholesale fruit, vegetable and cut flower market and the Northern Hospital means the hotel will be well utilised in the area.
“It will feature both hotel rooms and apartments, a café/restaurant, brewhouse, conference and meeting facilities, gymnasium, and an open car park containing 143 marked bays and secure bicycle storage.
“The hotel will also be complemented by eateries by a traders’ cafe/restaurant and Beer Republic Brewhouse,” Wilson says.
Minister for Industry and Employment Ben Carroll says, “Mantra Epping Hotel will be a state-of-the-art development, supporting jobs and tourism in a growing part of our city.”
Occupying a prime corner position at 250 Cooper Street within the prestigious Northpoint Enterprise Park at Epping, Melbourne’s fastest growing expansion corridor just 18 kilometres north of the CBD, the two-wing hotel has been designed by leading architect Peddle Thorp and Bruce Henderson Interiors.
Parliamentary Secretary for Tourism and Major Events Danielle Green, says, “This new development will be a prime tourism destination in Melbourne’s north and contribute significantly to the region’s growing visitor economy.”
Mantra Group Chief Executive Officer Bob East says the Group is thrilled to partner with Too Build, a developer who is in total alignment with Mantra’s commitment to quality. “The investment in this development is a powerful statement of confidence in the future prosperity of Melbourne and surrounds, with hotels experiencing substantial uplift in demand in recent years.
“This strong performance is set to continue with further domestic and international visitation uplift forecasted for the greater Melbourne market,” East says.
Mantra Epping Hotel is expected to officially open in mid-2019.
