Waterside Hotel

Kapitol Group is thrilled to be appointed as the head contractor for the transformative makeover of the Waterside Hotel, a cherished landmark situated at the prominent corner of King Street and Flinders Street in Melbourne's CBD. Originally built in 1853, this well-preserved Victorian-era hotel will have its iconic facade meticulously retained and restored, blending heritage with modernity.

The ambitious redevelopment project, spearheaded by leading hospitality group Sand Hill Road, aims to elevate the Waterside Hotel to the pinnacle of Melbourne's hospitality scene. The renovation will introduce a basement and a new six-storey structure, enhancing the hotel's functionality and aesthetic appeal.

The basement will house essential amenities, ensuring convenience and comfort for all visitors. The ground floor will be transformed into a vibrant social hub, featuring a beer garden, a public bar, and a bistro. The upper floors will offer diverse experiences, including a versatile function room, a rooftop bar with panoramic views, a sophisticated cocktail bar, and beautifully landscaped terraces. 

This project is due for completion in Q4 2025.
