iPG, ranked in the top 10 hotel owners in Australia, trumped the ‘$50 million to $100 million’ deal category, following the $73.6 million acquisition of the Novotel Glen Waverley, a 200-room hotel in the Melbourne suburb of Glen Waverley, in December 2016.

iPG’s Sales Director, Chong Ren, said: “iProsperity is delighted to receive this award, which

The Novotel Glen Waverley was acquired by iPG from private syndicate GW Hotel Investments led by Phil Green and Greg Shand following 20 years of ownership. The hotel, a contemporary 4-star hotel currently managed by Accor group, is located in one of Australia’s most attractive residential markets and is adjacent to the 8,352sqm Century City Walk entertainment and lifestyle shopping mall.

iPG acquired Century City Walk for $45 million in May, and is currently exploring the potential for joint commercial–residential development.
