209-key Mondrian Gold Coast
Scheduled to open mid-2023
Project includes two towers and 89 residences
Confidence is returning to the Australian hospitality sector with Accor and Brisbane developer Chris Vitale announcing the Mondrian hotel brand is coming to the Gold Coast.
The 209-room hotel will overlook Burleigh Heads beach on the Gold Coast. It is scheduled to open in mid-2023 as part of a $400-million project being undertaken by Mr Vitale and his wife Letitia's Vitale Projects.
The 22-storey Mondrian Gold Coast will be developed on a 4,037sqm site with 80m of ocean frontage and direct access to the beach. It is one of nine new Mondrian properties that the Los Angeles-based management company sbe (half-owned by hotels giant Accor) plans to open globally.
"As soon as the borders open, we expect to see an increase in domestic tourism," Accor Pacific chief executive Simon McGrath said.
"We anticipate that domestic and international tourism will begin to normalise over the next few years."
Accor and sbe will operate the hotel under a 20-year management agreement.
The development will also include a residential tower with 89 Mondrian-branded apartments. The two buildings will sit above a three-level podium that includes a fitness centre, spa, restaurants, and swimming pools
Mr Vitale said he and his wife would retain the hotel as an investment and they would move into an apartment in the Mondrian residential tower when completed in 2023..
