What was once a site of Sydney’s IMAX party is undergoing a $700 million transformation. By 2020, a under-construction snail-like potion obelisk in Darling Harbour will be a oppulance W Hotel (an appendage of Marriott International) with a Star Casino complex, ICC party and Sea Life Aquarium for neighbours.
Dubbed “The Ribbon”, a W Sydney will underline 593 guestrooms, and serviced apartments, alongside a operation of party facilities, including a “Wet Deck” (an forever pool unaware a harbour) and a “Living Room” (the brand’s renouned cocktail bar). You can also design a restaurant, dual bars, a gym, sauna centre, and 925-square-metres of eventuality space for conferences and amicable occasions. The aged IMAX party will also be retained, and get a revamp.
“Darling Harbour is going by a rejuvenation – [it’s] an sparkling time. It is repositioning itself as Sydney’s reward traveller end with a brew of convenience and business travellers,” Richard Crawford, comparison executive of growth for Australia and New Zealand during Marriott International, tells Broadsheet.
