World Class Group lists permit-ready Lorne block

World Class Group is selling a waterfront site permit-ready to become a hotel, in Lorne, a holiday hamlet about 140 kilometres south-west of the Melbourne CBD.

The elevated 3480 square metre block at 14-16 Ocean Road South, Lorne, is expected to sell for more than $4 million.

The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal only granted World Class Group permission to build the proposed hospitality complex three months ago.

Spread within two separate facilities, the venue would contain 34 suites, configured with between one and three bedrooms.

It would abut two mid-rise hotels: Grand Pacific Apartments and Point Grey Apartments. The Grand Pacific Hotel is also in the immediate vicinity.

The site is opposite the Lorne Pier and Point Grey precinct which is undergoing a $12. million redevelopment.

The Lorne town centre is about a kilometre away.

Savills Benson Zhou, Mark Stafford and Rob Williamson are closing an expressions of interest campaign for 14-16 Ocean Road South on July 24.

The brokers said that more than 2.1 million visitors toured the Surf Coast region in 2017 alone. By 2027, this number is expected to surge to about 2.8 million.
