The Brisbane-based developer plans to build 159 standard rooms and 14 larger suites on the 1,950sq m site along with a cafe, function area, pool, gym and rooftop seating at the 3-5 Zenith Avenue and 523 Hamilton Road, Chermside property.
Currently on the site, which is near Westfield Chermside, are two low-set and one high set houses typical of the Brisbane region.
“There are very few short-term accommodation options within Brisbane outside of the inner city area and airport and therefore this development presents the opportunity to broaden the short-term offering in a well-located position,” according to the application.
The hospital-focused hotel designed by Cottee Parker features a lobby, window boxes to shade the building and a vertical green wall as well as 619sq m of landscaping.
Limitless has worked on a spate of residential developments in the surrounding area, including Parkside Kedron, Pandana and 37 Norman Drive, Chermside, however this will be the developer’s first hotel.
Medi-hotels are emerging across the country, including the $200 million development of the first stage of Perth’s Murdoch Health and Knowledge Precinct in an effort to “free-up” hospital beds.
