“Our current strategy is to develop and retain a significant portfolio of the retail and commercial facilities in our mixed-use masterplanned developments so we view investing in hotels as an extension of that,” said Perri Projects’ Managing Director David Scalzo.

The permit to develop the boutique hotel was recently granted by the City of Port Phillip and the Plus Architecture-designed building is set to open in 2020.
