  • Brand new boutique hotel located in Southbank to be completed late 2025.
  • Hannah St. Hotel includes 188 rooms, lap pool, gym, and a co-working space.
  • Hotel expected to add to the rich and vibrant culture of Melbourne's inner city.

The future looks bright for Melbourne, with property developer Time & Place, in partnership with MaxCap Group and TFE Hotels, announcing a new $150 million boutique hotel in Southbank.

Due for completion in September 2025, the boutique hotel will add more flavour to Melbourne’s inner city, which is about to receive a $1.7 billion boost to refresh its Arts Precinct.

Hannah St. Hotel on Southbank

Conveniently located between the Melbourne CBD, Yarra River, South Melbourne, and the Arts Precinct, Hannah St. Hotel will boast 188 hotel rooms and be operated by TFE Hotels under the Collection wing of TFE Hotels’ brands. Amenities like a neighbourhood bar, restaurant, rooftop bar and events space will populate the hotel’s 10 levels.

Furthermore, the hotel will have a lap pool, large-scale gym, and a work club equipped with sound-proof pod-casting rooms for hotel guests to use, and an ‘Experience Director’ on site, who will work with residents to create unique experiences.

The hotel will exist in the same complex as The Queensbridge Building, another Hickory and Time & Place project due for completion earlier in December 2024, slated to deliver 367 residential apartments equipped with facilities like lush gardens, private rooftop terraces, and a private dining room.

An integral part of Melbourne’s culture

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

“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.”

Adding vibrancy to the arts precinct

Antony Ritch, TFE Hotels Chief Executive Officer, says, “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.”
