HOTEL rooms at Subi XO are starting to take shape with Doric taking over the site after original contractor Cooper and Oxley went in to administration earlier this year just two months from the completion date.

The Park Regis Hotel will have 168 rooms at the site that will also have commercial space, a food court, retail and cinema.

Doric has been appointed construction managers on behalf of owners Dradgin, which has set up project bank accounts to ensure sub contractors are paid.

Project manager Darryl Whiteley said about six of the previous sub contractors had returned to the project.

Leasing agent Lloyd Collins said lease opportunities would be released to the market on February 1 next year but an official completion date for the project was still unknown.
