by | 01 Mar 2022 | Hotel Projects, Projects

The luxury hospitality company will manage a hotel within an AU$2.7 billion (US$1.94 billion) Melbourne development showcasing how skyscrapers can incorporate the natural environment.

Four Seasons Hotel Melbourne will bring outstanding biophilic design to one of Australia’s largest cities.

An inspiring setting

Developer Beulah has selected Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts to manage the hotel within its AU$2.7 billion (US1.94 billion) STH BNK By Beulah development in Melbourne. The much-anticipated project is expected to create Australia’s tallest tower as well as the world’s tallest vertical garden, spanning a total of 5.5 km.

“Four Seasons was the perfect partner for STH BNK By Beulah and will offer an unmatched hospitality experience, while remaining uniquely Melbourne,” said Adelene Teh, Beulah executive director. “As STH BNK By Beulah continues to push the boundaries of what’s possible in the luxury, lifestyle and sustainability spaces, Four Seasons aligned perfectly to our ethos and vision, offering unparalleled experiences, a bold commitment to innovation and fantastic sustainability initiatives across its hotels and resorts.”

Bart Carnahan, president of global business development and portfolio management for Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, added: “We are incredibly proud to partner with Beulah and to be a part of the leading-edge STH BNK By Beulah development. This project will set a new standard for luxury in Melbourne, offering guests an exceptional Four Seasons experience set within an environment that will be unmatched in this market.”

An innovative mixed-use site

It’s envisaged that the mixed-use STH BNK By Beulah project will feature two neighbouring towers.

Crowning the western tower, Four Seasons Hotel Melbourne will accommodate 210 guestrooms, and be accessible via a 63rd-floor sky lobby providing views over the city’s skyline, beachfront and Royal Botanical Gardens. Amenities being promised here include world-class integrated health and wellness space, a rooftop restaurant and bar, and multiple event spaces.

These will be complemented by easy access to the other experiences provided at STH BNK By Beulah, which will be home to lush greenery including a rooftop sky garden, coworking facilities, the STH BNK Market Hall and programming within the art and culture spaces. The wider development will also encompass private residences, a 3,000-seat auditorium, offices, retail, a childcare centre, and a health and wellness precinct.

Four Seasons Hotel Melbourne is set to become the luxury hospitality company’s second property in Australia, following on from Four Seasons Hotel Sydney. Construction of the Melbourne property, which is expected to take around five years in total, is due to begin in late 2022.
