Westin Darwin Hotel progresses

Landbridge invites community to view the progressed design of the proposed Westin Darwin Hotel.

The Westin Darwin Hotel is continuing to progress, and Landbridge has been working in collaboration with the Northern Territory Government to deliver this iconic project.

The project will deliver a gateway for travellers to the Top End providing economic and employment opportunities as well as a connected and activated precinct for the residents of Darwin.

The design includes:

  • An uninterrupted public access walkway connecting Jervois Park to the Waterfront and enabling a continual walking and cycling path to Stokes Hill Wharf
  • Connections between the Waterfront precinct and the city through a skywalk from the Esplanade, offering direct public access to the precinct and to the Hotel’s iconic rooftop restaurant and bar where patrons will be able to enjoy the view over the Darwin waterfront
  • Lush, tropical landscaped grounds that celebrate the unique Northern Territory environment
  • Extensive use of passive design features tuned to Darwin’s climate, with integrated passive energy control elements like verandas, colonnades, breezeways and screens.

As a result of this work, Landbridge invites interested community members to come down and chat to the project team about the design and view concept images of the hotel.

“We’re holding two community information sessions which we invite community and industry alike to attend, we’ll have project team members on hand to talk through the design with images of the hotel, residential tower and the skywalk.” said Andy Payne, Project Director, Landbridge.

Community information sessions are on Saturday 3 March 2018 between 10am and 2pm and Monday 5 March between 5:30 pm and 7:30pm at the Charles Darwin University Waterfront Campus on Kitchener Drive.

Following the community information sessions the project team and Landbridge will look to lodge relevant planning and development applications with the aim for development approval by the end of May 2018.

If approved, construction is expected to begin third quarter 2018 for completion in late 2020 with the opening of the hotel to guests in 2021.
