Australia: Quest Apartment Hotels has opened Quest NewQuay in Melbourne’s Docklands, the company’s largest property to date.

Quest Apartment Hotels general manager for growth James Shields said: "Quest NewQuay is the network's largest apartment hotel featuring 221 serviced apartments. Situated in the heart of Melbourne's Docklands, the property is located within walking distance of Victoria Harbour and Melbourne's CBD. We have worked closely with our development partner MAB Corporation and the Victorian Government to ensure that our guests enjoy a premium home-away from home experience in the heart of Melbourne's Docklands."

Developed by MAB Corporation, Quest NewQuay is the 14th tower completed by the company, bringing the developer's total investment in the precinct to more than AUS$2.5 billion.

Quest Apartment Hotels chief commercial officer, Craig Ryan, said: "Quest NewQuay, our most ambitious property to date at approximately double the size of the average Quest property, is perfectly suited for professionals or families relocating to Melbourne. The Docklands has grown to become one of Australia's most vibrant precincts and will continue to attract families, business travellers and tourists for years to come. The demand for serviced-apartments in this area is growing each year and we're very proud to deliver the City of Melbourne's largest number of two- and three-bedroom apartments.

The Docklands has attracted more than $12 billion in private investment as part of its urban renewal plan. Development Victoria Group Head of Precincts, Geoff Ward, said Quest NewQuay is an asset to the precinct and a great choice for guests visiting the Docklands: "The Docklands has now matured, evidenced by the fact that the area is home to 11,000 people and 60,000 workers. It also attracts millions of visitors each year and is home to some of Australia's largest domestic and international headquarters, so Quest NewQuay is well positioned to service visitors and corporate travellers in the area." Mr Ward said.

Quest NewQuay is the company's 13th property in Melbourne. It features studio and one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, with fully-equipped kitchens, laundry facilities and a private balcony. The property also has a business centre, conference facilities, gymnasium, secure parking and a rooftop alfresco BBQ and entertainment area.

The apartment hotel is situated within walking distance of Marvel Stadium, The District Docklands and Melbourne's free tram zone. Purchased in 2016, the property is owned by Ascott-Qatar Investment Authority's joint venture.
