With the huge demand for inner-city affordable studio accommodation, we embarked on the conversion of an old dilapidated 5 level office block. The property is central and very well located at 53 Castle Street, near to the vibrant nightlife of Long Street, hotels, transport nodes and main arterials out of the CBD.
The property had great potential, with existing floor-plates which were perfect for small studio-apartment conversion.
The result is 19 “New York”, luxury loft-style studio residential units of approximately 25 m2, each with their own kitchenette. A new rooftop deck bar/terrace was constructed, with spectacular views of Signal Hill and Lions Head and a 120 m2 ground floor restaurant and hotel reception area.
InnsCape on Castle Hotel signed a lease on the property and have since boasted excellent occupancies and positive guest feedback due to the large, modern, comfortable rooms and central location.
