ANOTHER Perth hotel may be converted into a residential tower if the City of South Perth gives property developer Australand the go-ahead to redevelop the old Hurlingham Hotel, now a Rosie O’Grady’s pub.
Under Australand’s development plans the hotel, located on the Canning Highway in South Perth, will be converted into a nine-level tower fitted with 130 apartments, commercial space and a restaurant. The developer is currently in preliminary discussions with the City of South Perth.
Australand general manager Chris Lewis said the company was putting the proposal up for discussion and planned to embark on a community consultation program to ensure that the development was sensitive to the needs of the local community.
Mr Lewis said the hotel was one of the larger sites available in South Perth and the development would fit in with the City of South Perth vision for the area.
“It is a landmark site that offers great views back to the city and is located on a major arterial route,” he said.
Mr Lewis said he was looking to retain the hotel and hoped to convert it into a restaurant.
