The $10 million refurbishment of the Hobart Apartment Hotel is another great show of confidence in our booming tourism industry and will help to drive continued growth in the sector.
Following the upgrade, the RACV/RACT property is now a more contemporary hospitality venue and is ready to accommodate a growing holiday and corporate events market.
Developments like this support our plan to grow tourism and the visitor economy which is good for local businesses and creates jobs for Tasmanians.
Work included a new reception and hotel entry; a new lounge with glass atrium roof; fully renovated restaurant, two new kitchens and gymnasium; upgraded function rooms; and a new board room. The heritage-listed Cascade House next door was also remodelled to provide a bar downstairs and exclusive lounge upstairs.
The spectacular upgrade takes the property to a new level and enhances Hobart's attraction as a holiday and convention destination.
The tourism boom is fuelling unprecedented investor confidence in Tasmania evidenced by the number of new builds and property refurbishments across the State.
Tasmanian-based VOS construction was contracted for the project with up to 70 people employed at its peak.
