The entry of Moxy Sydney Airport, which is due to open in 2023.

Work has commenced as part of the construction of Moxy Sydney Airport, with teams from Roberts Co at the 2,997 square metre site underway on building the 301-room property which is on track to open in 2023.

Announced at AHICE earlier this year, Marriott International’s maiden entry of the Moxy brand in Sydney will feature the label in operation next door to Sydney Airport, with rooms catering to both business and leisure travellers.

The joint AUD$140 million project from RF Corval and KS Hotels and Resorts will boost the Roberts Co portfolio of projects which includes Zurich Tower in North Sydney, the North Shore Health Hub and a major redevelopment of Concord Hospital.

Moxy Sydney Airport will feature a ground floor cafe and bar.

Situated on Baxter Road, Moxy Sydney Airport will feature 301 rooms which guests will be able to adapt to their needs, accessed via their arrival at an energetic ground-floor bar which will double as the reception desk. An all-day industrial-themed café will headline the hotel’s dining offering, featuring a wide-ranging menu of healthy and tasty bites. Guests will also be able to make use of a fitness centre and self-serve laundry.

A variety of meeting and co-working spaces will help facilitate meetings and small events, designed as a lively and inviting space to gather with colleagues and friends.

RF Corval Director of Hotels, Chris Boys, said he was pleased to see work underway at the site.

“We know Roberts Co are well placed to tackle the complexity of the project,” Boys said.

The hotel will also offers a social lounge and a variety of flexible meeting spaces.

“This project is a clear reflection of our confidence in the accommodation and travel sector. Along with our partners, we share a positive outlook for demand in the longer term, with a forecast recovery of travel and tourism following the opening of borders.”

Roberts Co CEO, Alison Mirams, said the project will also help the company showcase its innovative style, which includes 36% of the project team being female.

“All of our project team will work across the five-day work week we have become known for,” Mirams said.

“This will be our third project delivered under this model and our first in the private sector, which we have found leads to improved staff happiness. Like in other industries, the team greatly benefit from spending their weekends with friends and family. Their improved mental and physical wellbeing ultimately results in a myriad of benefits for us a company, as well as our clients.”
