Plans For A Six Star Hotel In Sydney

Built has submitted plans to the NSW government for a six-star hotel


Key points:

  • Planning is for a 290-room hotel on the Education Building site

  • 61 rooms at The Lands Building property

  • Wish to amalgamate & develop a new 5/6 star hotel by using the air rights of both properties


Private property developer Built has submitted plans to the NSW government for a six-star hotel.


The company is seeking to develop two Phillip Street buildings, one of which is owned by the government and the other that it owns, into a hotel, using the state’s unsolicited proposal process.


The state process has drawn criticism as it allowed Crown’s casino complex at Barangaroo South and Macquarie’s dual tower office proposal above Martin Place metro station without tenders.


Planning is for a 290-room hotel on the Education Building site and 61 rooms at The Lands Building property.


Built owns Kusu House, a 14-storey building at 52 Phillip Street.


Its proposal seeks to amalgamate 50 and 52 Phillip Streets, capitalising on its ownership of the slim office block, and develop a new 5/6 star hotel by using the air rights of both properties.


Under Built’s proposal 50 Phillip Street would become the hotel’s main entrance and lobby, and house conference rooms and back-of-house, and host rooms.
