Major Geelong Development gets approval

By on 03 August 2018

As part of a freshly approved mixed-use development, Geelong stands to gain the nation’s first Holiday Inn & Suites outlet.

Backed by Franzé Developments, 44 Ryrie Street consists of a commercial tower alongside the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites outlet. The $150 million project was granted approval via the Planning Minister’s office.

As an urban renewal hot spot, the Ryrie Street development shapes as the region’s largest pending development and further adds to Geelong’s growing impetus. Handled by Architectus, the project also sees an integrated and permeable street level link and including a 7,400-square metre office space.

With the approval of the commercial tower and construction to start later this year, Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites is set to open by 2020.
