Greaton breaks ground on Adelaide GPO Hotel

Developer Greaton has commenced construction on the $200 million, 285-room Adelaide GPO Hotel.
The Premier of South Australia, Steven Marshall, was on hand to mark the occasion alongside Nicho Teng, Managing Director, Greaton and Richard Crawford, Senior Development Director, Marriott International.
The Adelaide GPO Hotel will incorporate 285 large guest rooms, including a Presidential Suite, Club Lounge, signature restaurants and bars, swimming pool and fitness centre, plus function and conference rooms.
It will become the first hotel operated in South Australia by the world’s largest hotel company, Marriott International.
Hughes worked with Greaton on the event and media management for the project’s key milestone, which generated broad media coverage across TV, print and radio.

In addition, Hughes graphic designer, Luke Howard, produced an animated video to highlight the hotel's key features - watch below.
