The Western Australian Government today called for Expressions of Interest (EOI) to construct and operate a new 4-star or higher rated hotel and short stay apartments as part of the highly-anticipated $110million Waterfront at Albany development.

Lands Minister Brendon Grylls said the hotel and short-stay site was integral to the success of the waterfront development and would add to the mix of accommodation already available in the City of Albany.

“Although a major tourist destination and commercial hub, Albany has no 4-star or higher rated hotels or equivalent short stay apartments,” Mr Grylls said

“This EOI represents an outstanding opportunity for an experienced hotel operator or developer not only to provide much-needed accommodation choice to the city, but also to enjoy being part of one of the best waterfront developments in the State.”

Tourism Minister Elizabeth Constable said Albany was an important gateway to the South Coast of WA and received more than 253,000 overnight visitors last year.

“Albany has continued to grow in popularity but is has been waiting a long time for a hotel of the calibre we envisage for the Waterfront development,” Dr Constable said.

“We are seeking a hotel developer or consortium that can help attract both tourists and business visitors by providing premium hotel and short-stay apartments, as well as function and conference facilities.”

The hotel and short-stay apartment site comprises 9,599sqm and is located adjacent to the new $70million Albany Entertainment Centre, which is due to be completed by the middle of this year.

When complete the Waterfront at Albany will comprise a new hotel and short stay accommodation options, restaurants, cafes, shops, potential for a 161-pen marina, with up to 74 pens in Stage1, and the new 620-seat Albany Entertainment Centre.

Expressions of Interest for the hotel and short stay sites close at 2pm (WST) Thursday 24 June 2010. EOI documents and support information can be downloaded from the LandCorp website:

LandCorp expects site works and construction of the marina for the waterfront to be complete by early 2011.
