Double Bay’s InterContinental

Double Bay's InterContinental set to turbocharge village renaissance

Andrea Dixon – Property Observer

The InterContinental Hotel is getting ready to fling open the elegant entry of its newest Australian operation in Double Bay.

Having languished as the boarded up Ritz Carlton Hotel-turned-Stamford Plaza since closing in 2009, the new property may put some pizazz into the sluggish centre.

Next month it will open as the InterContinental Double Bay following a $25 million renovation and aim to resume it’s post as Sydney most glamorous inn with 140-rooms and a chic rooftop pool with curtained cabanas.

The Cross Street property was bought in 2013 for $57 million by Singaporean funded group Royal Hotels Australia. It had previously sold to the Valad Property Group for $81.5 in 2008. It will be Royal Hotels’ fifth in Australia.

The new operation will sleep 360 people when full, have a late night gin bar, a restaurant and Sydney’s only fully separate Kosher kitchen in a hotel of this standard. Michelin-starred French chef Julien Pouteau will head the restaurant.

It has also joined the Double Bay wedding collective in an attempt to tap the lucrative nuptial market.

I am a mother of 2 living in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney. My two passions are Interior Design and Real Estate. I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to work in both industries. I started off working in Interior Design assisting Interior Designer Darren Palmer which was amazing and a great experience. What I loved most was working with such a creative sole as Darren and having the opportunity to source and work with gorgeous products. From there I continued with my other passion in Real Estate. I am now a licenced Real Estate Agent with Raine and Horne Double Bay/Bondi Beach working within the Goldman team (Mark and Barry Goldman). As the saying goes:- "It's a beautiful thing when a career and a passion come together" So very true for me and I feel very fortunate to be doing something that I love everyday around my kids and that's also rewarding.
