TFE Hotels adds to its Melbourne pipeline
TFE Hotels will operate a 188-room hotel just behind Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre and Crown Melbourne and close to the Melbourne Arts Precinct, which is undergoing major redevelopment.

The new $150 million hotel, called the Hannah St. Hotel – and actually located on Hannah St – will open in 2025 as part of the Collection by TFE Hotels brand.

TFE already has a dual hotel development underway in Docklands, set to open in 2026, offering 305 rooms across a Collection by TFE Hotels property and an A by Adina. A 9,000m2 conference centre on skybridge will connect the two hotels in a pair of Docklands towers.

The just-announced Hannah St. Hotel will occupy 10 levels of The Queensbridge Building and will include a neighbourhood bar, restaurant and a rooftop bar, which will double as an events space. The building will also feature 367 residential apartments, with residents and hotel guests to share the building’s swimming pool, gym, coworking spaces and podcasting rooms.

The transformation of the building is being undertaken by developer Time & Place in a joint venture with MaxCap Group and TFE Hotels.

“As developers, we want to facilitate the development of legacy projects that invite art, design and culture to influence one another,” said Time & Place director, Tim Price.

“We envisage the hotel will become ingrained in the cultural fabric of the suburb and form a part of the transformation, coming to life as a ‘neighbourhood hotel’ for locals and visitors alike.

“As we set out to bring this landmark hotel to The Queensbridge Building, we are looking to bring international influences to Southbank through design and experiences.  We anticipate that our hotel will be regarded as the place to stay for anyone in the arts visiting the city.”

“Operating under the Collection by TFE Hotels’ brand was a natural choice for the project, not only are our brand values aligned but TFE Hotels is the perfect operator to bring to a suburb rich in arts and culture as it transitions to a premier lifestyle destination.”

TFE Hotels’ CEO, Antony Ritch, said Collection by TFE Hotels properties had a unique model of close collaboration with their owners.

“We are incredibly fortunate to have partnered with Time & Place and MaxCap on a building that will not only become a place maker for Melbourne’s newest lifestyle destination but provide such incredible amenities for the community,” he said.

“What I love about this project is that Hannah St. Hotel will deliver an experience in a neighbourhood that is transforming, thanks to an investment in Australia’s largest cultural infrastructure project, into a truly world-class art precinct.

“Southbank is connected to the best of Melbourne. It has a lot of energy and a real focus on arts, sports, and the outdoors (with 18,000 square metre of additional public gardens set to be delivered) which beautifully complements those iconic Melbourne experiences – shopping, laneways, food, and culture – that we all love so much.

“And, importantly for us, Hannah St. Hotel is being delivered by Melbourne developers with a long-term commitment to the area.”
