Project Description

This 33, 000m2 multi-use development comprised residential, retail, cinema units and a 5-star hotel (The G Hotel). The scheme was constructed on a phased basis, commencing with the residential element and completed with the opening of the already internationally renowned G Hotel.

The site is located overlooking the scenic Lock Atalia and hence water retaining basement construction for the 10,000m2 car park was a key design requirement. The hotel was initially designed on the basis that the building was to be an office block and indeed construction commenced accordingly. The late change into a 5-star hotel resulted in key challenges for the design team and contractor. The outcome is an unqualified success which is reaffirmed with multiple awards.
