The $35 million Queens Arms pub redevelopment in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane, is set to become a Sage hotel.
The property, expected to open in the second quarter of 2017, will be named Sage Hotel James Street, Fortitude Valley. The 4.5 star new-build will have four levels with 93 rooms, secure basement car parking, a coffee shop, restaurant and boutique wine cellar on the ground level.
The adjoining pub, the Queens Arms, will be revitalised with a substantial makeover at the same time to make this precinct the most exciting part of the Fortitude Valley and Newstead area.
This news comes just days after SilverNeedle revealed that it will be the hotel operator at Wallaroo Shores, a landmark $220 million tourism and residential development set to reinvigorate South Australia’s regional economy and create 2200 jobs.
Branded as Sage Wallaroo Shores, the 100 apartment boutique resort will have luxury amenities, a cinema, swimming pool, gymnasium, tennis courts, function centre and café.
Sage Wallaroo Shores Resort is a 90 minute drive north from Adelaide and is located between the Copper Coast township of Wallaroo and the Spencer Gulf.
Sage Wallaroo Shores Resort, which overlooks 18 hectares of beachfront land, is the first stage of the Wallaroo Shores masterplan and is due for completion by the end 2016.
