Quest St Leonards is the first of three new Quest properties scheduled to open in the capital city this year, to be followed by Quest Bella Vista in June and Quest Macquarie Park in December.


Quest CEO, Zed Sanjana emphasised the importance of the Sydney market in the company's growth strategy looking forward.

"Sydney continues to be a key growth market for Quest, as we continue increasing our presence, strengthening our brand and cementing our position as the accommodation provider of choice for travellers doing business and spending their holidays in New South Wales," said Mr Sanjana.

One of Sydney's suburban skyscraper clusters, St Leonards provides a central access point to three of Sydney's key business hubs, positioned 5 kilometres from the CBD, 2 kilometres from North Sydney, and 3 kilometres from Chatswood.

St Leonards' own commercial centre continues to expand, providing one of the largest office markets in metropolitan Sydney, while establishing the area as an important employment centre for the North Shore and Sydney. Key economic drivers include professional, scientific and technical services, health care and manufacturing.

The brand new property features 79 studio apartments and guests will have access to an onsite car park, gymnasium and swimming pool.

2016 sees an extensive pipeline of new property openings for Quest across Australasia, opening in 11 new locations. In addition to St Leonards, this includes: West Perth, Mounts Bay Road, East Perth and Fremantle (WA); Newcastle West, Bella Vista and Macquarie Park (NSW); Port Adelaide (SA); Dandenong Central (VIC); and Petone (New Zealand).
