Hotel operator Quest will open its doors to a new 71-room apartment hotel located in the Woolooware Bay Town centre development in southern Sydney.
Located next to Shark Park, the new hotel accommodation will span three levels, and overlook the home of the Cronulla Sharks NRL team—PointsBet Stadium.
“We’re envisaging a large number of guests from the sporting industry, as well as fans,” Quest general manager James Shields said of the latest management deal.
Stage four of the Woolooware Bay Town Centre is currently under way at a slower pace as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Capital Bluestone was selected as a joint venture partner for the Cronulla Sharks to develop the town centre project in 2012.
Located 24 kilometres from Sydney CBD, the Woolooware town centre will comprise 898 residential apartments across four stages, a shopping centre, the revitalised Cronulla Sharks Leagues Club, and a new foreshore park when finished, although it is expected works will not be completed until early 2023.
Contamination of the Woolooware Bay Town Centre site had also delayed approval of the foreshore’s landscaping plans, earlier this year.
Sutherland Shire mayor Carmelo Pesce said that the latest redevelopment will address the lack of short-term accommodation in the Sutherland area.
“Council has long been keen to support high-quality development that delivers a boost to the accommodation options available for visitors to the Sutherland Shire,” Pesce said.
Established in Melbourne in 1988, Quest properties are managed by franchisees.
The latest Quest offering, designed by Turner, will include conference facilities, a gymnasium and an external garden terrace.
The announcement of Quest’s Woolooware Bay presence comes after the hotel operator announced plans for a property at Queensland Investment Corporation's, Watergardens in Melbourne's north-western suburbs earlier this year.
