Errol Stewart's silos project takes a step forward

The redevelopment of the Kings Wharf grain silos is one step closer with JMC Property Group’s team preparing for two large concrete pours this week.

The $20 million hotel, which is expected to offically open in December 2017, is being developed by Launceston businessman Errol Stewart.

On Tuesday, August 23, the foundation will be laid for a 48 metre tower crane which will allow access to the entire site with its 60 metre boom.

The crane is due for completion in early September.

Meanwhile 600 cubic metres of concrete, weighing about 1,500 tonne, will be delivered on Thursday, August 25.

The concrete, plus an additional 55 tonne of steel reinforcing, will lay the footing for hotel’s the northern tower.

The hotel will be seven storeys high with up to 108 rooms and is expected to include an ancillary gym, cafe, bar and restaurant, meeting rooms, deck, Tamar River boating access and more than 90 car park spaces.

Good to see some development up North...its been one way traffic to Hobart for the past few years.

Pity its just a makeover though and not a new build as obviously it wont add to the skyline much but maybe it will trigger some ancilliary devleopments around it.

This is the key I expect. Errol Stewart is clever in this regard. It comes as no surprise that he supported the Seaport development since it increased the value of his land his car yard (Jackson Motor Company) is on. The Silos development builds on this and makes the whole "mouth of the North Esk" area into a hospitality/tourism area.

From today's Examiner:

Silo Hotel crane operator has best seat in the house

Crane operator Allan Dickenson says he has got the best office in Launceston – sitting 50 metres above the ground at the Silo Hotel development.

“If there’s anyone that’s got a better one they can come and show me,” Mr Dickenson said. “But up this high, looking over the Seaport, down the Tamar and at Penny Royal, I reckon I’ve got it made.”

The 64-year-old operates the 25 tonne tower crane working at Errol Stewart’s North Bank hotel development.

Mr Dickenson said on a clear day he could nearly see the Batman Bridge but “when she’s all fogged in, she’s a little dark”.

The climb to the cabin takes several minutes – depending on breaks to catch your breath – and involves 230 ladder rungs.

“When I first started I’d only go one or two floors and the old heart was saying ‘you better stop and have a rest’ but I’ve been going a bit further now and I get up in one stop. It takes me 10 minutes or so,” Mr Dickenson said.

Mr Dickenson, who has been operating cranes since 1988, said the Silo Hotel tower crane was the biggest he had operated in Tasmania.

“It has got 70 metres of boom out there and you can go around 360 [degrees] so there’s a lot of area you can work within.

“If we sat this in the middle of Aurora Stadium we could nearly do all that work in the area of the oval.”

The Chinese crane arrived in 15 containers and took two weeks to piece together, anchored several metres into the ground.

The crane, which will be used to lift concrete panels weighing between three to 12.5 tonnes among other tasks, can lift up to 25 tonnes.

“Out at 70 metres, we can pick up 4.7 tonne and in between, 40 or 50 metres, [it can lift] about nine and a half tonne.”

A computer shows when the load limit is reached and automatically cuts the power if the operator tries to exceed it. When weight is put on or taken off the boom, the cabin rocks gently.

The glass-floored cabin has air conditioning for warm days and a radio for communicating with ground crews or workers in the cage.

Construction manager Craig Wood said weather had impacted work in previous months but the build was going ahead smoothly.

“Within six weeks we will be all out of the ground,” he said. “All the footings will be done and we get to start to do columns and cut out holes from now on and up we go.”

The $16 million development is expected to be finished by December 2017.

Mr Dickenson said he was looking forward to seeing the completed project and how it would join up with the Seaport and Josef Chromy’s Penny Royal redevelopment.

“Even though I work for Errol Stewart, what he’s done around here with the Seaport and creating work for all the blokes, it’s a credit to him, he’s a man with a vision. As well as Josef Chromy, between them two blokes they’ve made Launceston a nice place to be.”

Potential development delay for Silo Hotel

Holly Monery - 21 Mar 2017, 4:45 p.m.

Silo Hotel developer Errol Stewart says he doubts the project will be completed by the December.

“Certainly the structure will be complete and but it is big job to fit out. We are progressing pretty well now,” he said.

“The fourth level was poured a week ago and we are hoping to pour the Eastern wing by end April.

“This is where the restaurant and conference centre are.”

Mr Stewart said cutting into the silos had been “a breeze” but a lot of labour and concrete had to go into the development.

“I think the crane will be up all year, maybe it will come down around Christmas, but it will be very handy to lift furniture on to the decks so we will leave it up as long as possible,” he said.

The overall project will cost $20 million and the first concrete pour at the site was in August.

Mr Stewart also hinted at another plan which is coming together for the land behind Officeworks and JB Hi-Fi.

“We have a plan coming together across the road from the Silos which will be another significant development so stay tuned,” he said.

LAUNCESTON - #UC: Silo Hotel - 11st / hotel

Here's a photo update from today:









I was under the impression the hotel was facing the city but it's actually facing north over the industrial area. When the new development between this hotel and Seaport finishes, there will be stunning views...
