Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts has been named as the official hotel operator for a planned landmark luxury development in Melbourne, Australia.

The Cox and Fender Katsalidis-designed two-tower development will overlook Melbourne’s World Heritage-listed Carlton Gardens, currently under consideration for planning approval.

When completed in 2022, the luxury five-star Shangri-La Hotel, Melbourne will feature an estimated 500 guest rooms with three levels of amenities for guests to enjoy, including a sky lobby, restaurants, spa, fitness centre, pool and ballroom.

The second tower will include about 300 luxury residential apartments, as well as office space. A sky bridge will connect the two towers, and retail space will occupy the lower levels of the development.
