The features of the anticipated hotel tower and ribbon development will include 61 stories, 200 private apartments, and 220 six-star hotel rooms. In addition, there will also be 15 extra food and beverage vents with a varied range of price points.

The Resort facilities including a rooftop terrace, two gyms, three pools, a spa and also a wellness center. The Hotel amenities include Sky Lobby, event space, and signature restaurant. Neighbourhood Centre will include conference rooms and five levels with a social enterprise café. There are also economic benefits that will feature 1,000 construction jobs and add 500 jobs once the property is running

Approved Rights to Design

The privileges to design the tower were approved in 2016 by much-admired architects FJMT that is managed by Richard Francis-Jones. This is after he had won the Design Excellence Competition.

Matt Bekier,  Chief Executive Officer for The Star Entertainment Group, said

“Forecasts suggest Australia’s present visit of around 8.3 million global visitors per annum will increase to 15 million a year inside a decade.”

“To provide for that demand, the essential tourism organization is in need.  Right now Sydney does not have sufficient top-notch hotels to meet this wave of worldwide tourist demand. Australia currently entices just about 1 percent of China’s worldwide outbound travelers,”- added stated Bekier.


We cannot wait to see the finished product. This is one of the biggest and most anticipated projects to take place. Moreover, it is growing to the Australians.
