A 34-storey hotel has been proposed for Pitt Street in Sydney, which would see the demolition of two existing buildings on the site.
Designed by Marchese Partners Architects, the hotel proposed for the site of 371-375 Pitt Street includes a seven-storey podium and a 27-storey tower. This development would replace an existing three-storey brick commercial building and the adjacent four-storey brick building.
The 27-storey tower is located above the podium with a setback of eight metres from Pitt Street. The envelope of the tower has a minimum setback of three metres from the rear boundary.
The ground level will contain the hotel’s lobby, and a number of “activated” retail tenancies along the Pitt Street frontage. Two basement carparking levels will have access through the existing lane.
Communal spaces – including a restaurant, café and lounge areas – will occupy levels 1 to 3, while levels 4 and 5 will provide service areas.
Approximately 252 hotel rooms will be spread over levels six through 33.
A stage 1 development application has been submitted by developers, Sydney Redevelopments, and is currently awaiting approval. The application is currently open for public exhibition and can be viewed here.
