Event Hospitality & Entertainment Limited (EVENT) today announced it has entered into a management agreement with Iris Capital for a QT Hotel in Newcastle, a creative place to stay and play and a hallmark destination for the NSW Government’s Revitalising Newcastle program.
Excitingly, this will be one of four new hotels being developed for the QT brand across Australia and New Zealand similar to the transformation of Sydney’s iconic department store Gowings, when QT Sydney was created.
Property Owners Iris Capital will partner with EVENT to transform the former historic David Jones building, retaining the landmark building’s heritage features, combined with the much-loved contemporary charm QT is famous for.
QT Newcastle will nestle amongst the new urban village perfectly situated in the heart of Newcastle’s Hunter Street Mall on the corner of Perkins Street only a short walk to the Harbour and Newcastle’s beautiful surf beaches.
The hotel aims to reflect QT’s popular luxurious and quirky flair, featuring 106 character-filled rooms, a boutique rooftop bar, and an intimate QT signature dining concept and bar!
“This will be one of the most unique offerings that Newcastle has seen and is unlike anything available in the city so far,” said Christopher Milou, Director of Hotel Valuations at Colliers International.
QT Newcastle and QT Auckland are scheduled to open in 2020, followed by QT Parramatta and QT Adelaide in 2021.
Further details regarding QT Newcastle will be announced soon.
