The Altus Hotel and Apartment Tower at Digital Harbour

The Altus, $300 million hotel and apartment development at Digital Harbour in Melbourne Docklands, was formally launched by the Minister for Planning, The Hon Matthew Guy MLC and the Lord Mayor of Melbourne, Robert Doyle, at Atlantic Group’s Peninsula Room on Central Pier on Monday 21st October 2013.

The tower designed by Moull Murray architects, on the corner of Harbour Esplanade and Dudley Street, will complete the northern gateway to Docklands and the Central Business District and offer 281 superbly appointed rooms under the hotel component and 299 residential apartments within a 37 level landmark tower.

Pan Pacific Hotels Group will manage this first international 4.5 star hotel at the north end of Docklands under its PARKROYAL brand. The Docklands development will be the second PARKROYAL in the gateway city of Melbourne, adding to the brand’s portfolio of 14 leisure and business hotels and resorts in cities across Australia, China, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore and Vietnam.  PARKROYAL Melbourne is scheduled to launch in 2016 and will be the second PARKROYAL in Melbourne, after PARKROYAL Melbourne Airport.

David Napier, Executive Director of Digital Harbour, said,  “Within a few hundred metres of the on/off ramps of CityLink, The Altus will be connected to Melbourne’s freeway network, within 15 minutes of Melbourne’s International airport and located within Docklands most accessible precinct at Digital Harbour.

“Once settled into the hotel, guests will have access to Melbourne’s famous tram network, including the free city circle trams. With a tram super-stop located within 100 metres of the front door and with several routes to select from, departing every few minutes, guests and residents will be able to travel to the centre of the city and beyond”.

Since an initial soft launch, the first two weeks of the marketing and sales campaign for The Altus has achieved more than 30% pre-commitments in apartment sales and the development team is gearing up for commencement of construction at the beginning of the second quarter 2014.
