The State Government has announced the successful conclusion of the Middleton Beach Hotel Operator Expression of Interest process.
Submissions were received from high calibre local, national and international hotel chains that see an opportunity in a future hotel proposed for Albany’s popular seaside tourist destination.
The strategy to approach operators prior to seeking interest from developers is part of a raft of measures introduced by LandCorp and the City of Albany to make the site as attractive as possible to private investors.
The success of the Hotel Operator EOI is an encouraging sign and the project partners remain cautiously optimistic about efforts to secure a hotel developer.
The Hotel Operator EOI process was managed by specialist global agency CBRE Hotels, appointed by LandCorp.
The submitting hotel chains cannot be named at this stage, as any company participating in the forthcoming developer EOI must be given the opportunity to progress discussions with potential operators at their discretion.
The next stage will be an EOI process to find a hotel developer, which will be announced in the near future.
