A proposal to build Perth's tallest hotel - a 40-storey skyscraper on Adelaide Terrace - has been lodged for planning approval and is expected to get the go-ahead.
Once built the $280 million hotel will be 17 storeys higher than Perth's current tallest hotel, the Pan Pacific.
The 266-room hotel will be at 190 Adelaide Terrace between Hill and Bennett streets in East Perth.
The hotel operator behind the project was not named in the planning application lodged by Donaldson and Warn Architects.
In April last year, an application was lodged for a 33-storey hotel at the site by Singapore-based group Amara, but the revised plans do not include any mention of the company. According to the new application, the proposed luxury hotel will cater for international travellers and business executives.
It will feature a restaurant, cocktail lounge and day spa for hotel guests exclusively.
The development will also contain a public art gallery on the ground floor, conference facilities and a 465sqm ballroom.
During a public consultation period residents in surrounding buildings raised concerns about overshadowing, traffic, privacy and devaluation of property.
Planners from the City of Perth concluded that the development was generally compliant with regulations and would not impact adversely on local amenities.
A Department of Planning panel is expected to approve the project when it meets next Thursday.
