A highlight of a career spanning more than five decades, Arthur Laundy has commenced construction on his ‘dream’; the Marsden Park Hotel & Brewery.
‘The Marsden’ will host diverse spaces; from family-friendly dining areas and kids’ playgrounds, public bars, and lounges, to a beer garden, outdoor sports, and gaming areas. Thoughtfully incorporated into the expansive 5,900 square metre site.
The upper level of the Hotel includes a function area featuring an in-house bar and kitchen, for weddings and corporate events. This unique venue will have to capacity for up to 400 guests.
The design by Altis Architects incorporates an exposed steel structure and an expanse of operable glass walls bolstering the indoor-outdoor spaces and premiering district views.
Distinctive to the development is a bi-level brewery producing up to 15,000 barrels of beer per year. The design carefully integrates a large atrium offering an interactive experience where the brewery operations and tasting bar can be viewed from all areas of the establishment.
The build follows several years of planning with FDC and Sydney Business Park, and the token turning of dirt represented a significant milestone for all involved. “With the sheer volume and diversity of growth in Marsden Park and Western Sydney, this development will become a destination venue for a rapidly growing region, a region that is playing an increasingly important part of Sydney’s future,” says FDC Project Manager, Peter Stait.
