The future of Merivale’s Ivy complex has not yet been decided, despite a report published by Daily Telegraph over the weekend that stated that the venue would be knocked down to make way for a 55-storey hotel.
“We can confirm that Merivale is currently exploring ideas for the long-term future of the ivy precinct, with a number of options being considered including a new hotel, hospitality and lifestyle complex,” a Merivale spokesman said in a statement.
“However, if the project proceeds, it is still many years away and discussions to date have only been preliminary.”
“No final plans have been decided nor time-lines set, and there are certainly no immediate plans to commence redevelopment of the site.”
The spokesman continued: “Ivy continues to operate ‘business as usual’ and we look forward to welcoming guests for years to come”.
