Previously the John Coleman Hotel, the complete refurbishment of this building’s historic facade and the reinvention of this popular landmark building also came with a fitting new name. The design included the addition of a new four level building behind the existing art deco façade, as well as a basement car park. Eight shop tenancies on the ground level were added, as well as 46 fully furnished serviced apartments. Generous, saw-tooth balconies overlook internal courtyards.
