New 5-star hotel planned for Darwin
December 11th, 2009

A BARRISTER and property developer are to build a 21-storey five-star hotel in the centre of Darwin.
Peter Maley and Chris Voudouris will join their 1000sq m blocks in Cavenagh St.
The $50 million tower block will have 166 rooms, up to six storeys of offices and four levels of car parking.
"The site is right in what is really the financial part of the CBD, rather than in the Mitchell Street entertainment strip," Mr Maley said.
"There's a big demand for five-star hotel accommodation in Darwin and for high-quality office space."
Tourism operators have long complained about the shortage of five-star hotels in the Territory.
Mr Voudouris, who owns TC Investments, will demolish his office block opposite the Cavenagh Hotel.
Mr Maley will demolish his office next door - a building that has been a men's shelter, pool hall and antique shop since it was built in the 1950s.
The Development Consent Authority has approved the plans and a liquor licence application has not drawn any objections.
Work on the new hotel is expected to start next June and will take 18 months to complete.
Mr Maley, who was a one-term Member of the Legislative Assembly for the CLP from 2001, has many Northern Territory business interests, including a cattle station.
He sold his share in the Victoria Hotel and Discovery nightclub last year.
And he sold the Lazy Lizard caravan park and bar in Pine Creek earlier this year.
Mr Voudouris has been behind several Darwin developments, including a retail complex in Casuarina.
