MELBOURNE: TFE, in partnership with local developer/owner Capital Alliance, has announced a first-of-its-kind mixed-use development in Melbourne Docklands. Designed locally by SJB, the $340M two-tower project will feature the first purpose-built Collection by TFE Hotels and A by Adina properties in Melbourne and the largest rooftop infinity pool in Australia. A 1000-pax capacity event conference centre – with spectacular 360-degree views of the city – rounds out the offering.

SJB Founding Director, Michael Bialek, said Capital Alliance’s latest Docklands project, which is set to open in 2026, would become an architectural landmark on the Melbourne skyline.

The 200-key, yet-to-be-named Collection hotel will join the ranks of other purpose-built Collection by TFE Hotels properties – including The Calile in Brisbane, Auckland’s The Hotel Britomart and the new Surry Hills collection property currently under development in Sydney (see below) – in delivering personalised service and bespoke hospitality experiences.

Complementing this offering,  the 105-key premium A by Adina hotel – the first of the brand to launch in Victoria – will deliver a perfectly suited balance between a hotel and a private city apartment.
