Australia, 11 November 2021: Australasia’s largest serviced apartment operator Quest Apartment Hotels has today announced plans for a 75-toom hotel in Truganina, a quickly growing neighbourhood 22km west of the Melbourne CBD in the City of Wyndham.
Located on the corner of Leakes Road and Palmers Road, Quest Truganina will be the first hotel delivered in the suburb.
Wyndham is one of the largest and fastest growing municipalities in Australia, with a population of over 280,000 that’s tipped to exceed half a million by 2041.
“There’s a clear opportunity to capitalise on demand and provide quality accommodation the growing business segment travelling to the area” said Quest General Manager of Growth and Capital Strategy, James Shields.
About 40 minutes’ drive from both Geelong and Melbourne, Truganina is currently home to over 20,000 people and 1,500 registered businesses , with the suburb anticipated to employ around 23,000 people by 2031 .
While Quest has several established apartment hotels in Melbourne’s outer west, Shields says requirement continues to increase parallel to economic growth and investment.
“In late 2018, retailer Target moved its headquarters to the Williams Landing Town Centre, where an additional hundred businesses and the State Government of Victoria have tenancies, reflecting the desirability of Melbourne’s west for employers and employees alike across a broad range of industries”, added Shields.
Part of a mixed-use development by Abraham Cohen, Quest Truganina will provide a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, occupying four of the building’s six levels, plus ground floor reception, conference facility, business lounge and gymnasium.
Wyndham City’s Destination Wyndham portfolio holder, Cr Heather Marcus, welcomed the announcement by Quest Apartment Hotels.
“We’re committed to attracting more visitors to our City, for business, when visiting friends and family, attending major events or to just discover our wonderful tourism attractions. There is so much to see and do and experience in our region,” Cr Marcus said.
Construction is set to commence in the second half of 2022 and is slated for completion in late-2023.
The announcement of Quest Truganina comes after that of Quest Geelong Central, Quest Woolooware Bay and Quest Collingwood, all underway.
“In addition to the three projects we have announced this year that are under construction, there are another four hotels to be announced before the end of the year, as we continue to focus on regional and suburban locations in demand among the business traveller”, said Shields.
