A new mixed-use development in the north-western suburbs of Melbourne housing both commercial and retail tenants will also feature a Quest Apartment Hotels property, the serviced apartment company has confirmed.

Watergardens Town Centre will be located in the city’s north-western suburbs, part of a development from construction firm QIC.

Quest Watergardens will feature 86 apartments across studio, one and two-bedroom layouts, each with fully equipped kitchens and laundries. Other community-living facilities will include conference facilities and car parking. Construction is due to commence soon, with the hotel slated to open in the middle of next year.

Alongside the hotel, Watergardens is in the midst of constructing The Marketplace – a $60 million food and dining precinct – alongside a number of other pipeline projects in the area.

Quest Chief Operations Officer, David Mansfield, said the company was glad to play a part in the growth of the north-west corridor and in one of Melbourne’s fastest-growing suburban areas.

“For more than thirty years we’ve seen the main streets of Australian suburbs transform into major retail commercial and community centres and mixed-use developments like Watergardens deliver even more services to the community.

“Quest Watergardens is an extension of our longstanding partnership with QIC and follows the successful delivery of Quest Epping in 2018.

“We are excited to develop this partnership in the years to come.”
