BROWNLOW medallist Matt Priddis was part of celebrations to officially open an Innaloo hotel.
The former West Coast Eagle joined Stirling Mayor Mark Irwin and Quest Apartment Hotels chief executive Zed Sanjana for the proceedings at Quest Innaloo on Thursday.
Cr Irwin said the Sunray Drive hotel was in the heart of the Stirling City Centre, which was starting to undergo a “significant transformation”.
“This area including Herdsman and Glendalough represents the largest business precinct outside of the Perth CBD, accounting for over 40,000 local jobs,” he said.
“With a thriving economy worth over $12 billion per annum and investor confidence at an all-time high, this area continues to grow.
“The development of the Stirling City Centre is our number one priority and we are working closely with State and Federal Government to create an accessible, sustainable and vibrant urban centre with increased jobs, transport and housing for our community.”
The hotel opened to guests late last year.
