across all facilities and 10 free Wi-Fi hot spots in the public open space.

Up to 900 hotel rooms in a hotel complex at the northern end of the precinct.

 The new convention, exhibition and entertainment facilities will be built north of
Pier St.

Amended plans for the hotel complex at Darling Harbour have been released. Instead of two hotel towers, there will be the single hotel tower. That tower will now be taller.

Revised design for the hotel has been made public:

sufficient architectural excellence/landmark quality to justify its scale and presence within the relatively low-rise
western side of Darling Harbour."


The response...

The revised proposal retains the essence of this concept while adding increased articulation to the vertical
volumes in response to the comments received.


The key modifications:

Lantern Development
Increased Sculpting of Form
Podium Development
Main Facade Modifications
Main Facade Modifications - Use of Colour
North East Facade Modifications

The revised form and composition of the hotel generate an innovative and distinctive architecture, which
provides an iconic marker and urban gateway to Darling Harbour.


The changes are quite stunning - looks very distinctive
