DARWIN- new skyscrapers!

GREAT NEWS!!


HONOLULU, OAHU, HAWAII - Outrigger Hotels & Resorts has announced its first resort in Australia's Northern Territory. Located in Darwin, the capital city of the Northern Territory, the new hotel will be branded as the Outrigger Pandanas Darwin when it opens in late 2007, reflecting the significance of the Pandanas Palm, a native Australian life source.

The 26 level Outrigger Pandanas Darwin will become the second tallest building in Australia's youngest and fastest growing city, and will be located within walking distance of the city's entertainment and dining precinct.

This multi-million dollar development will include a dynamic mix of one and two bedroom suites and luxurious penthouses. Outrigger Pandanas Darwin will also feature a restaurant, bar, retail space and an exclusive day spa.

According to Outrigger's Vice President-Business Development, Bill Henderson, "Outrigger Pandanas Darwin will add another dimension to the Northern Territory's booming tourism industry, and will mark a unique addition to Outrigger Hotels & Resorts' growing portfolio in Australia and the South Pacific."

Henderson also pointed out that a presence in Darwin is a key part of Outrigger's vision to become a significant presence throughout Australia, where the company currently has 14 hotels and resorts open or under construction in Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, and now the Northern Territory.

Outrigger's Managing Director for Oceania, Dave Lawrence, described the company's expansion to Australia's "top end" as an exciting and long awaited venture. "Darwin is viewed by Outrigger as one of Australia's vibrant and cosmopolitan cities," he said. "It's located right on the edge of the Timor Sea; and being Australia's gateway to Asia, Darwin has a strong tourism focus for both inbound and domestic markets."

Developed by Gwelo Developments, Outrigger Pandanas Darwin enlisted international award-winning architects and interior designers in the quest for the ultimate Northern Territory escape. "Outrigger has been working closely with Gwelo Developments and we are pleased to associate the Outrigger name with this quality development," Mr Lawrence said.

"The resort's proximity to world heritage listed Kakadu National Park, the Port of Darwin and tourist favourite The Ghan train from Darwin to Adelaide in South Australia, make it an ideal launch pad for travel and discovery in Australia's top end," Lawrence added.

Outrigger resort for Darwin


OUTRIGGER Hotels and Resorts is to open its first resort in the Northern Territory.

The Outrigger Pandanas Darwin will be a 26-storey building in the CBD, and is set to become the second tallest building in Darwin when it opens in late 2007 or early 2008.

The development will be a mix of one- and two-bedroom serviced suites, residential apartments and penthouses, along with a restaurant, bar, retail space and a day spa.It will be the 14th Outrigger resort in Australia!


“Darwin is viewed by Outrigger as one of Australia’s most vibrant and cosmopolitan cities,” Outrigger managing director Oceania Dave Lawrence said.

“It’s located right on the edge of the Timor Sea, and being Australia’s gateway to Asia, Darwin has a strong tourism focus for both inbound and domestic markets.”

Developed by Gwelo Developments, Outrigger Pandanas Darwin enlisted international award-winning architects and interior designers in the quest for the ultimate Northern Territory escape.

According to Outrigger's Vice President-Business Development, Bill Henderson, "Outrigger Pandanas Darwin will add another dimension to the Northern Territory's booming tourism industry, and will mark a unique addition to Outrigger Hotels & Resorts' growing portfolio in Australia and the South Pacific."

How good is this? 26storeys equates to approx 80m-90m high. Ill have to contact GWELO to confirm height/render ect.
Since Evolution has been approved its booming!
The skyline will be unrecognisable in a decade!

BIG NEWS!!!!subsidiary Stella Resorts owns Peppers, Breakfree, Bale, Mantra,etc etc and have just bought Stocklands (Saville Group), Harvey world travel and S8. This makes them huge. The Outrigger Pandanas will be be known as Saville Pandanas.

i got some info back from gwello today.
The pandanas bldg has had 2 floors added to design which means 28floors and 88m high! Also there are another 2 bldgs as part of project which are about to start!
In this elevation you can see there Wood st offices in foreground which is 7storeys. To the right is the 12storey/40m Litchfield Apartments.
