The New South Wales State Government has approved a plan to build a 35-storey, 616-room hotel in Darling Harbour.
The development forms part of Lend Lease’s convention centre rebuild which is under way in the precinct.
The $2.5 billion project includes a new exhibition centre, entertainment and retail spaces as well as residential apartments.
Construction on the hotel is expected to begin by the end of 2015.
