The southern Perth locale of Cockburn is set to welcome a 3.5-star hotel from Hilton Group’s mid-range “Hampton” brand.
The Hilton Hampton Inn and Apartments will be built on the site of a vacated car park lot at Cockburn Central, located at the east end of Signal Terrace next to the Cockburn Central Train Station. It will feature 146 hotel guest rooms, 109 apartment units and room for ground floor commercial tenancies. Work on the A$40 million, 12-storey development is expected to start in early 2016.
The hotel – the first of its kind in an area that so far only has motels, lodging houses and B&Bs – is set to be the tallest building on the edge of the town square, and designed to be a landmark for the fast-growing precinct, as there is increasing demand for hotel accommodation in the Cockburn Central area, said DesignInc managing director Ron Jee.
The Cockburn council notes that the hotel will be a “fantastic” addition that will contribute to the vibrancy of the area and support local businesses, while its location next to the central train station offers a convenient and affordable option for local and international visitors.
The mid-range Hilton Hampton in Cockburn will join Hilton’s other accommodation brands in Western Australia, including the long-standing Parmelia Hilton hotel in central Perth, and two DoubleTree by Hilton hotels in Perth and Fremantle respectively.
Did you know? The Peregrine Estates development in Piara Waters is just 4km away from Cockburn Central, which has a large variety of shopping, dining and recreational facilities to cater to people of all ages and from all walks of life.
