When it is completed, it is expected the luxury five-star Shangri-La Hotel, Melbourne will feature an estimated 500 guest rooms with three levels of amenities for guests to enjoy, including a sky lobby, restaurants, spa, fitness centre, pool and a state of the art ballroom.

Located at 308 Exhibition Street, the two-tower development overlooking Melbourne’s World Heritage-listed Carlton Gardens is currently under consideration for planning approval.

A second tower will include some 300 luxury residential apartments as well as office space.  A sky bridge will connect the two towers, and retail space will occupy the lower levels of the development.
