The hotel will feature as part of a wider development, Surry Hills Village, by TOGA Group, which also owns the TFE Hotels brand.
The 102-room boutique hotel is located on the site of the original Wunderlich factory, which closed in 1972. TOGA’s mixed-use development will include event spaces, restaurants and retail outlets alongside residential terraces, penthouses and apartments. The hotel also offers a rooftop pool, bar and restaurant, with a fully operable glass roof.
“We have a prominent address at the crossroads of Surry Hills and Redfern and a location full of rich history,” said Allan Vidor, TOGA Group’s managing director and TFE Hotels’ chairman.
“And our team are very much looking forward to sharing our version of Sydney hospitality with the local community and with travellers looking to immerse themselves in a genuine and vibrant experience.
“Every aspect of The Eve has been carefully crafted to evoke a sense of elegance, sophistication and comfort.
“From the unique architectural features to the meticulously designed interiors, we are looking to create a hospitality experience that is both visually stunning and welcoming for all.”
The hotel, designed by local architect Adam Haddow, sits within a tapestry of laneways and greenery, landscaped by Daniel Baffsky from 360 Degrees, which is also based in Surry Hills.
“The unique features of this hotel can be found in the hand-crafted details of the glazed faience, the bespoke lighting by Sydney designer, Henry Wilson, and in the Australiana palette which provides rich tones,” said Haddow.
“The rooftop pool and bar and its unique location on the fringe of Surry Hills and Redfern’s creative hub, and indeed the retail shops which look outward to the community, combine to provide a guest experience that’s embedded in inner city Sydney.”
