A new Four Seasons hotel will be housed in the world’s tallest “greenscraper” in Melbourne, Australia. On February 18th, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts announced that it had chosen Melbourne property developer, Beulah, to manage the new hotel within its new AUD 2.7 billion development.
Australia’s STH BNK By Beulah will include 210 rooms, crowning the western tower of STH BNK, and will see guests arrive via a Sky Lobby situated on the 63rd floor, boasting panoramic views over Melbourne’s city skyline, beachfront and Royal Botanical Gardens. The Hotel will also offer a world-class integrated health and wellness experience, a sprawling rooftop restaurant and bar and multiple event spaces.
On track to become Australia’s tallest tower, STH BNK By Beulah is also set to become the tallest vertical garden in the world, setting a precedent for future skyscrapers to incorporate the natural environment. The vertical garden will reach a total of 5.5 kilometres, the length of Melbourne’s famed The Tan running track nearly 1.5 times over.
This project will set a new standard for luxury in Melbourne, offering guests an exceptional Four Seasons experience set within an environment that will be unmatched in this marketBart Carnahan, President, Global Business Development, Four Seasons Hotels
In addition to services and amenities of the Hotel, guests will enjoy access to the myriad experiences available at STH BNK By Beulah, including the lush gardens, programming within the art and culture spaces, co-working facilities, the STH BNK Market Hall, and much more.
Envisioned as a vertical mini-metropolis, STH BNK By Beulah will comprise four distinct collections of private residences, public and green spaces, a rooftop sky garden, 3,000 seat auditorium, commercial offices, childcare centre, a health and wellness precinct, arts and culture spaces and programs, as well as world-class experiential retail, all within two twisting terraced forms.
We look for opportunities where we can be part of innovative new projects, with partners who share our vision for excellence. We look forward to welcoming guests through our doors in the years aheadBart Carnahan, President, Global Business Development, Four Seasons Hotels
The design of he tallest vertical garden in the world, extending 3.4 miles into the sky, was created by UNStudio and Cox Architecture, Travel + Leisure reports. According to UNStudio’s website, the design was conceived as “a ‘green spine’ of vertically networked platforms, terraces and verandas […] created by the splitting open of the potential single mass at its core, thereby forming two separate high rise structures.”
Four Seasons Hotel Melbourne will be the second Four Seasons in Australia, joining the existing Four Seasons Hotel Sydney. Construction is expected to begin late 2022 and will take approximately five years to complete.
