Ritz-Carlton has signed an agreement with Far East Consortium for the development of The Ritz-Carlton, Perth.

Working closely with the Western Australian Government and the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority (MRA), Far East Consortium will build the 204-room Ritz-Carlton, in addition to residential apartments in the heart of the riverside Elizabeth Quay development on Perths waterfront.

The Ritz-Carlton, Perth, scheduled to open in 2018, will have a waterfront position offering guests a sweeping view over the Swan River, and the nearby attractions of Kings Park and the Botanical Garden.

Located in the commercial and business district adjacent to the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, Elizabeth Quay is the centre-piece of Perths drive to reinforce its position as an international and contemporary destination for the global affluent traveler. When completed, the project will also feature 1.5kms of continuous promenades to create a destination experience that will attract an estimated four million visitors a year.

Perth is the capital city of Western Australia and is recognized by the Economist Intelligence Unit as the 9th most livable city in the world. It enjoys a reputation as Australias sunniest city and tourism arrivals are robust as the state enjoys 7 million overnight visitors a year. Perth is also close to the scenic Swan Valley, known as Western Australias oldest wine growing region as well as the Americas Cup port city of Fremantle. The regional economy also remains one of Australias most buoyant and accounts for almost 50% of all exports.

Far East Consortium Chairman, Tan Sri David Chiu said, Far East Consortium is privileged to have been selected as the developer of this project by the Western Australian Government which will bring the river to the city. We look forward to creating a set of landmark buildings on the Perth waterfront which will herald Perths arrival as a world class city in Australasia. The Ritz-Carlton is a renowned international luxury hotel operator renowned for its service. The development of The Ritz-Carlton, Perth is a key part of the Elizabeth Quay project and will further strengthen that reputation. I expect it to quickly become an iconic part of Western Australia's tourism landscape.

The ground-breaking for The Ritz-Carlton, Perth is expected during 2015. The project will also encompass ground floor retail space, waterfront fine dining experiences, and luxury 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments.
