TFE Hotels is on track to open its first Vibe hotel in South Australia early next year after marking the ‘topping out of Vibe Hotel Adelaide this week.  

Project partners GuavaLime, Loucas Zahos Architects and local builder, Synergy Construct, joined TFE for a rooftop ceremony and ceremonial tree planting to celebrate the milestone, with keynote speeches by City of Adelaide Lord Mayor, Sandy Verschoor, and South Australian Tourism Commission’s Senior Engagement and Industry Development Manager, Miranda Lang.

“We have no doubt that this hotel will be a great support as Adelaide continues to grow their space, health, government, and defence business builds in the coming years,” said TFE Hotels’ Director of Development, John Sutcliffe.

“And, together with a great line up of new hotels in the city, it will also provide a substantial boost to local tourism experiences.

“Here, in the east of the city, Vibe will also offer Australian-style hospitality in the thick of the local sports and arts scene with the Adelaide Festival, WOMAD, and of course the Super Cars next year.”

Designed by Loucas Zahos Architects, the 18-storey design-led hotel features 123 rooms with open plan bathrooms offering views to the city or Adelaide Hills, and a stylish pool connecting the hotel to the neighbouring ONE Apartments.

“Hotel guests can choose to retreat to thoughtfully-designed rooms or be part of a vibrant, inner-city community at street level with restaurants, bars and culture all at their doorstep,” said Loucas Zahos Director and Principal Architect, Con Zahos.

It’s the tenth building and the second boutique hotel in the Flinders East precinct development – which has been more than twenty years in the making – joining One Adelaide, ART Apartments, Zen, Aqua, Flinders Loft and Soho Hotel. The opening of Vibe Adelaide will mark the completion of the development.
