NewQuay – Grand Mercure Reception


Grand Mercure is located in Melbourne’s vibrant waterfront precinct of NewQuay.

NewQuay precinct is on corner of Harbour Esplanade with award-winning restaurants and cafes, bars, stores and a private marina.

Grand Mercure is the largest waterfront serviced apartment complex in Melbourne, offering one, two or three bedroom accommodation. Each fully furnished luxury apartment blends spacious interiors, balconies and spectacular views, with the amenities and services.


Basso Project Management developed and built the modern reception area and foyer as well as back of house offices to service the high-traffic space. Staff at the front desk offer room service, sightseeing tours, car rentals and concierge services.

The project also included a business centre adjacent to the reception.

Basso Project Management provided Project Management Services.

“The reception area had to be both highly functional and highly finished to impress guests but also to endure constant use.” Elia Basso, Director, Basso Project Management
