Accor has announced a joint venture with well-known Sydney developer Central Element and property investor Boston Global [CEBH] to develop the Sydney’s first 25hours Hotel, which they say will open at the end of 2022.

Their 25hours Hotel Sydney will be located in the heritage building of 1-11 Oxford Street, Paddington, said to be bringing life back to one of Sydney’s most iconic event and hospitality landmarks, with the building first opening in 1911 as the West’s Olympia Theatre and sitting on one of Sydney’s best known and busiest intersections, where Oxford Street meets South Dowling Street, Victoria Street and Barcom Avenue.

The 25hours Hotel Sydney to be situated in Oxford Street Village Centre is said to be perfectly positioned for guests, in an area renowned for its diverse culture and creative scene, close to world famous retailers, restaurants and parklands.

The owners and developers have commissioned award-winning Australian architecture firm Tonkin Zulaikha Greer to design the 25hours Hotel, which will be constructed across a total area of approximately 5,550 square metres, offering 105 guestrooms and a spectacular rooftop bar, overlooking Oxford Street and Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs and harbour.

Two interior design companies will work on the project, with A Work of Substance from Hong Kong, designing of the rooms, public areas and events spaces, said to be creating powerful and memorable experiences for visitors to the hotel, including a central courtyard in the middle of the hotel which will be used to host live events.

Sydney-based interior designers Acme & Co will work on the hotel’s rooftop bar, restaurant and café offerings.

A restaurant described as of exceptional quality is planned for the hotel, which is also claimed will become a must-visit destination for Sydney residents and hotel guests alike.

There will also be a café on the ground floor on Oxford Street, a stat of the art fitness centre and extensive conference facilities.

CEBH say that the formidable partnership was founded on a desire to create a unique hotel with an outstanding food and beverage offering at one of the most sought-after locations in Sydney, with Wayne Chivas of CEBH saying, “It has been our long-term vision to create a hotel of stature and presence in the heart of Sydney.”  Adding, We are delighted that in 25hours, we have found the perfect partner for this unique building” and “25hours will be a hotel characterised by personality and charming, relaxed service, enriching Oxford Street and the city’s culinary and bar scene.”

Bill Moss AO said, “After several years in the making, we’re excited to see our vision coming to life. High quality, well designed mixed-use developments in and around major health precincts,” with Simon McGrath, CEO Accor Pacific, saying, “We’re delighted to be bringing 25hours to Sydney.”  adding, “The building itself is in an incredible location and has enormous potential, and the open areas such as the rooftop bar and the central courtyard will allow us to truly bring our new hospitality concept to life,” and “With CEBH we have an experienced partner at our side, who will bring skill and thoughtful detail to the project.”

25hours Sydney is the second 25hours Hotel to be announced in Australia, after plans for 25hours Melbourne were revealed last year.
