The new hotel will include a cafe, rooftop bar, restaurant, along with co-working spaces.

The redevelopment of the former New Esplanade Hotel near Elizabeth Quay is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2019, with the new facility set to feature a rooftop bar and co-working spaces.

Quay Perth Hotel, which has been branded as an 80-room boutique hotel, will be managed by Singapore-based Louis T Collection, with project services director Robert Batrick and general manager Lovelynn Clark overseeing the project.

The new hotel will include a cafe, rooftop bar, restaurant, along with co-working spaces.

“Quay Perth will be a vibrant new addition to Elizabeth Quay,” Ms Clark said.

“Returning to Perth, and to a hotel that will play such an important role in the revitalisation of the waterfront and in the community at large, is one of the most exciting opportunities of my career.”

Ms Clark has been a member of pre-opening hotel teams for several five-star properties in mainland China, including the Park Hyatt, Beijing, and Hyatt Regency hotels in Hangzhou, Dongguan, Jingjing City, Qingdao and Xian. 

A team of architects and designers has been commissioned by Louis T and H&M Capital for the refurbishment, including interior stylist Malvina Stone, and collaborative architects Nicola Gibson and Daniel Bailey.

Perth-based architecture firm Alda Consultants was also part of the design process.

Alda director Andrew Lian said the exterior design would embrace a new-meets-old philosophy to maintain the character of the property, updating the existing bay windows and extending the facade of the roof top to highlight its location in the Perth skyline.

The original Esplanade Hotel was opened in 1898 and demolished in 1972.

The New Esplanade Hotel was built at the site and reopened as a 67-room hotel with a restaurant.
