KSL Capital Partners Expands Australian Hotel Portfolio with Acquisition of Four Points by Sheraton Sydney, Central Park
SYDNEY – October 4, 2021 KSL Capital Partners, LLC (KSL) announced today that an affiliate of KSL has acquired the Four Points by Sheraton Sydney, Central Park for an undisclosed amount. It will continue to be operated by Marriott International under the Four Points by Sheraton brand. While KSL has already invested in Ballie Lodges in Australia, this is KSL’s first investment in Sydney.
“KSL Capital Partners’ primary focus is to invest in high-quality travel and leisure properties with outstanding management teams,” said Siddhant Jhunjhunwala, Vice President, KSL. “Sydney is one of the strongest long-term Asia Pacific tourism destinations and has historically outperformed all other Australian gateway cities. This is a rare opportunity to expand our portfolio with an upscale, strategically-located asset in this highly sought-after market.”
Newly opened in 2018, the Four Points by Sheraton Sydney, Central Park features 297 guest rooms, including 45 suites. Amenities include a bar, restaurant, fitness center, 50 dedicated car parking spaces and over 500 sqm of conference and meeting space. Planned capital improvements include repurposing existing meeting space and enhancing food & beverage concept offerings.
The property is strategically located at 88 Broadway, Chippendale NSW and forms part of the Central Park mixed-use development, adjacent to Sydney’s emerging “Silicon Valley”. It is within close proximity to a number of major corporations, University of Technology Sydney, the vibrant Chinatown, Surry Hills, University of Sydney, University of Notre Dame, and the Darling Harbour convention and entertainment precinct. The hotel is served by Central Station, one of the main public transport hubs in Sydney for trains, buses, the recently opened light rail and the forthcoming metro currently under construction.
