Milestone moment as Geelong Quarter tops out
It’s topping out time for Geelong Quarter, the city’s first major hotel and apartment project in two decades.
The highly anticipated residential, hotel, retail and commercial space is expected to attract a greater population and increase the vibrancy of the area, contributing to the continued growth of Victoria’s second biggest city.
Our Living Sector Leader Oliver Mayger, Commercial Sector Leader Matt Smith and Senior Associates Stephen Perkins and Madeleine Joyce joined the teams from Franze Developments, IHG Hotels & Resorts and Maxcon to mark the completion of the structure – and the start of something new for Geelong.
“It’s always exciting to see a building reach topping out stage, and as a landmark project for Geelong this one has special significance,” said Stephen Perkins.
“By working closely with IHG and Franze Developments we’re creating a place that celebrates the rich heritage of the city while reflecting its contemporary identity and vision for the future.”
Situated on the prominent corner of Ryrie and Fenwick Streets, the building is the newest of several distinguished corner buildings in Geelong, including the Victorian-era former Post Office and Wool Exchange buildings. Following in the tradition of these prominent landmarks, Geelong Quarter is boldly articulated and graciously scaled to suit its corner site.
