A new 79-apartment hotel located in Melbourne’s northern suburbs is open for business, breathing new life into the city’s business accommodation sector.
The Quest Apartment Hotel in Preston is ready to welcome guests after construction finished earlier this month, with this the third Quest Apartment Hotel to open its doors in 2020.
Diversified property developers Pellicano oversaw the construction of the hotel, at 520 High Street, building on their long-standing relationship with Quest having already worked on eight other projects together.
Pellicano managing director, Nando Pellicano, said that the positioning of the hotel is primed to capitalise on a growing demand for business accommodation in the area.
“Preston is an exciting commercial prospect – the area is set to benefit from infrastructure works and investments; we are expecting it to continue growing in coming years, as the area evolves following COVID-19,” he said.
The new hotel includes a gym and conference room and is in walking distance to the popular High Street retail precinct.
“With Melbourne now re-opening its economy, Preston’s local restaurants, cafés, breweries, and its iconic market – a destination in itself – are set to be a big drawcard for future travellers,” said Mr Pellicano.
We have a very strong relationship with the team at Quest, and we are looking forward to collaborating on more projects in the future.Pellicano Managing Director – Nando Pellicano
Quest Apartment Hotels’ chief operating officer, David Mansfield, said that he is motivated by the rapidly developing Preston landscape and that interest in the hotels facilities has already picked up.
“Sitting in the Preston, Reservoir and Broadmeadows business corridors, Quest Preston will sustain accommodation needs in both the white collar and industrial sector, with state government offices, major retailers, training venues and call centres already in the area, and continued transformation on the horizon,” he said.
The conference space at Quest Preston is driving considerable interest, with a large number of enquiries coming through from corporates seeking state of the art conferencing facilities for prospective activities late in 2020 and into the new year, pending restrictions.Quest Apartment Hotels Chief Operating Officer – David Mansfield
