The Hotels, Tourism and Leisure team at marshalls+dent+wilmoth has advised the ErdiGroup on the rebuild of the Swanston Hotel Grand Mercure and its rebrand to Accor’s fastest growing upscale brand in the Asia Pacific – the Pullman brand.
The rebuild involved extensive renovations to the existing building which has delivered a striking façade, re-designed 5 star guest rooms, a unique designer lobby, a brand-new restaurant and an exclusive club lounge with breathtaking views overlooking the city. The renovations occurred over a 20 month, staged process and involved four different interior designers – Rothelowman, STUDIO MAC, interiors by Foster and P49.
The new Pullman Melbourne on Swanston is a first for the Melbourne CBD and through the ErdiGroup team’s management, raises the bar for all hotel products in the city by delivering a truly unique product to its guests.
marshalls+dent+wilmoth acted for the ErdiGroup on all stages of the renovation, including the Construction Contracts, Finance Agreements and Hotel Management Agreement. Hotels, Tourism and Leisure Principal, Jeffrey Pinch, and Senior Associate, Briget O’Callaghan advised on this transaction.
