THE party looks like it’s finally over for one of Perth’s best loved student drinking haunts (below left). The Nedlands Park Hotel owner Murray McHenry is looking at development opportunities for the site, pending a report commissioned by the Nedlands council.

“The site has outlived it usefulness, and it creates problems,” Mr McHenry said. “The council want us to reduce the number (of patrons) at the hotel.”

For the hotel’s owner it’s a balancing act between preserving the heritage building and remaining financially viable.

Several rough proposals have been developed by Mr McHenry through workshops run by the Nedlands Council, however any development will preserve the historic building’s heritage facade.

In other hotel news, a property adjacent to the Ocean Beach Hotel has sold for $1.15 million after being passed in at auction for $1 million.

The block, at 138 Marine Parade, is zoned “special development” and is understood to be slated for a private residence.

However, the block is zoned R50 and it could accommodate a hotel, tavern or retail outlet.
