Plans to redevelop the Hyatt Regency Perth include an art gallery, a community theatre, new food and beverage tenancies, a supermarket and end-of-trip facilities open to the public, according to documents to be assessed by planning authorities next week.

Singapore Stock Exchange-listed Tuan Sing Holdings lodged a $50 million development application to redevelop the Adelaide Terrace luxury hotel earlier this year, with the works to comprise the refurbishment of the existing commercial space and the construction of a new podium building.

Fresh renders of the plan, which has a maximum height of 11 storeys, were released this week, ahead of its evaluation by the City of Perth development assessment panel on July 6.

The new plan, created by local architecture firm CHRISTOU Design Group, does not include large-scale changes to the existing Hyatt hotel, other than a refurbishment of its internal plaza, while its Plaza Ballroom will be demolished and replaced by new function space.

The proposal also calls for the development of a childcare centre and a health centre, while the end of trip facilities have been designed to tap into demand from the growing numbers of people who cycle to work.

Tuan Sing had been planning a redevelopment of the Hyatt Regency since it enlisted the services of national architecture firm Bates Smart in 2010, however the new plan has been significantly scaled back from that three-tower proposal.

City of Perth planning officers have recommended the proposal for approval, saying it represented an improvement in amenity and usability, with the public facilities to encourage a more active use and more vibrancy.
