The Hurley Hotel Group this morning released its plans for the former TAFE site at Goodwood Rd, Panorama.
The company has lodged a development application with Mitcham Council and says public consultation is open until April 11. The project also is subject to Consumer Business Services consent to transfer the Tonsley Hotel license to the new site.
The Tonsley Hotel on South Rd, Clovelly Park, is being acquired by the state government and will be levelled as part of the North-South Corridor upgrade.
The Hurley Hotel Group said it plans to begin construction at the new site later this year, with a bottleshop and tasting room.
The second stage involves a five-storey Panorama Hotel with ground floor cafe bar and restaurant, gaming room and sports bar. The plans also feature three levels of accommodation, with 77 rooms including 26 serviced apartments, plus a rooftop bar with multiple function spaces.
Hurley Hotel Group general manager Sam McInnes said the project would “attract a wide range of tourists to the area, including international visitors, those from interstate and locals wanting a weekend away.”
“Having adaptable accommodation with options to suit all tastes and budget, as well as the highlight of the development being the rooftop bar, the new Panorama Hotel will offer something for everyone,” McInnes said.
“We are proud to be working with South Australian architect firms Cox Architecture (who have designed the hotel) and Evo Arc (who designed the bottleshop). We will work with local builders, trades and use locally sourced materials throughout the construction.”
The company said two significant gumtrees would remain at the Panorama site and that for each other tree removed, directors Peter and Jenny Hurley would plant two at their Adelaide Hills property.
