Reminiscent of iconic Hollywood hotels such as Chateau Marmont and the Beverly Hills Hotel is The Calile – the forthcoming luxury development currently rising on the corner of James and Doggett Streets. The gorgeous Richards & Spence-designed hotel will span 2600 square metres and will boast 178 luxury hotel rooms, quickly establishing the shopping and dining hub as one of Brisbane’s most fashionable destinations. With Brisbane’s warm sub-tropical climate in mind, the new hotel will take shape as an oasis, boasting a crisp Hollywood-chic facade supplemented with green touches and luxury amenities.
Developed by the family-owned Calile Malouf Investments, The Calile will ascend seven storeys above James Street and will include day spa facilities, a function room catering to 300 patrons, a podium-level pool (complete with poolside cabanas) and a stellar restaurant and bar. The ground floor of the development will be given over to sublime flagship retail boutiques, gourmet eateries and nightlife hot spots. The Calile will be bringing a slice of Los Angeles luxury to James Street in 2018 and will be operated by the Australian-based TFE (Toga Far East) Hotels.
