Quest at Sydney Olympic Park is the fourth property that the company has opened since July and the remainder of 2012/13 will see Quest expand into eight new locations in Australia and New Zealand, a total of 12 for the financial year.
The new 4.5-star property is Quest’s second largest and feature 140 studio, one, two and three bedroom apartments in metro Sydney’s geographic centre.
Quest Serviced Apartments Chairman, Paul Constantinou, said the expansion will cater to the 12 million people who visit the area every year.
“Sydney Olympic Park presents an ideal market opportunity for our business – there are 6,000 events held here every year, including the AFL and NRL, major concerts and the V8 Supercars. There is also the ever growing sporting community – athletes, trainers, visitors – and a solid business base,” Constantinou said.
“Flexible accommodation such as Quest’s is scarce and we look forward to catering for the market we know exists now, and to support it as the area continues to grow into the future,” he said.
The Sydney Olympic Park Authority Master Plan predicts the area will be home to a daily population of 50,000 workers, students and residents and host 25,000 visitors daily by 2030.
“On behalf of the Sydney Olympic Park Authority and the wider Park community, I’m pleased to welcome Quest to the Park. With the ever growing number of events held in the Park, particularly business events, Quest’s arrival is well timed to support the growth in both business and leisure visitors. I wish them every success,” said Sydney Olympic Park Authority CEO Alan Marsh.
Each apartment is fully equipped with kitchen and laundry facilities and the property boasts an on-site gym and conference room. Guests of Quest at Sydney Olympic Park have access to a range of services including pantry shopping, breakfast packs, local restaurant chargeback, valet dry cleaning, baby sitting booking and business administration services.
Quest at Sydney Olympic Park is the first non-Accor property to open in the Olympic Park precinct.
