Quest Serviced Apartments has opened its highly anticipated Abbotsford property in the thriving City of Yarra.
The brand new Quest property features 93 studio, one, two and three bedroom serviced apartments and is located just 4.5km north-east of the Melbourne CBD at 611 Victoria Street, Abbotsford.
Quest Abbotsford Franchisee, Paul Murphy was thrilled to open his doors yesterday and emphasised the importance of the new property in the City of Yarra, an area with growing demand for flexible corporate accommodation.
“The City of Yarra is one of Melbourne’s most covetable areas and business is thriving across a number of industries, with over 8,700 businesses providing more than 57,000 jobs,” said Murphy.
“Quest Abbotsford meets a strong demand for quality corporate accommodation in the area, while being conveniently located close to public transport, conference and exhibition centres, business precincts in neighbouring suburbs of Richmond, Burnley, and Collingwood, and an array of cafes, restaurants and services.”
The serviced apartments feature kitchen and laundry facilities, wifi access, multi-unit desk chargers, and traditional Quest services such as local restaurant chargeback, pantry shopping, dry cleaning and babysitting booking. In addition, the property offers conference facilities, onsite car parking, and gymnasium.
Quest Serviced Apartments Chairman, Paul Constantinou said yesterday marked the beginning of an exciting pipeline of growth for the company in 2014.
“This is an exciting time for the Quest business as demand for flexible, corporate accommodation continues to grow rapidly across Australasia. Quest Abbotsford is the first of eight new Quest properties to be opened this year in a range of metropolitan, suburban and regional locations,” Constantinou said.
“Quest is very proud of the brand new Abbotsford property and looking forward to delivering a quality accommodation offering for corporate travellers attending to business in the City of Yarra and surrounding areas.”
In addition to Quest Abbotsford, a further seven new Quest properties will open this year in key locations at King William South (Adelaide CBD), Berrimah (NT), Woolloongabba (QLD), Wellington (New Zealand), Whangarei (New Zealand), Newcastle West (NSW) and Melbourne Airport (VIC).
Quest Abbotsford was developed in partnership with privately owned Salta Properties as part of its Victoria Gardens Precinct. The Victoria Gardens Precinct development is valued at $1.5 billion and is one of a number of major precincts being developed by Salta Properties across Australia.
