Development Consent Authority has today approved the $200 Million Darwin Luxury Hotel development at the Darwin Waterfront.

Darwin Westin will be operated by Westin Hotels and Resorts.

“This is great news for the Territory and our $100 Million City Revitalisation agenda, creating up to 500 jobs during construction and around 150 jobs ongoing in operation.” Chief Minister Michael Gunner said.

 

“A $200 Million private investment into the Territory is a significant boost to confidence in the Territory.”

Hotel project is expected to create up to 500 jobs for Territorians during construction and a further 150 jobs ongoing in operation.

Construction will commence on site this year and the hotel will open to the public in 2021.

Local businesses will have the opportunity to tender for contracts. The developer has undertaken procurement processes to identify local capacity, through the ICN gateway.

Access to Darwin’s waterfront will not be impacted by the Hotel. The developer will construct a new seawall, public footpaths and public boardwalk as part of the development, connecting through to Jervois Road and onto the cruise ship terminal.

Northern Territory Government is investing $17 Million in public infrastructure which includes a 200 m Skywalk to connect the Luxury hotel to the CBD.

Skywalk development has received approval under the terms of the Heritage Act.
