Designed to meet the evolving needs of the National’s capital, Harbourside South stands as a beacon of progress, innovation, and opportunity. The mixed-use nature of this building offers unparalleled versatility and promises to reshape urban living, workspaces, and recreational experiences. 

“Steamships and its businesses are deeply committed to the development and growth of Papua New Guinea,” said Managing Director Rupert Bray. “Our investment into the precinct has brought in new international brands such as the Marriott, highlighting Steamships’ reliability and confidence as a joint-venture partner and business leader in PNG.”  

Harbourside South features include a retail floor with thirteen outlets and three A-grade commercial floors (2,400m2) all of which are fully tenanted. The building is also home to the country’s first Marriott Executive Apartments, with an impressive eighty-eight suites. The spacious one- and two-bedroom apartments are fully equipped with a kitchen, laundry, 24-hr security and a luxury, “At Your Service” concierge team to assist with your every need.

The Marriott Executive Apartments are available for short and long-term rentals with a minimum 1-week stay.  

A pedestrian link bridge connecting Harbourside South to the existing culinary hub of the Harbourside East and West development offers tenants and customers safe and secure access to both sites. 

A private member’s lounge is situated on the 11th floor, offering Marriott Executive Apartment tenants, and its members exclusive access to a luxury spa, conference spaces, private lounge and dining experiences, a roof top pool, a children’s recreational area and state of the art gymnasium, equipped with a lap pool and fitness studio.  

Harbourside South is also in the process of obtaining an EDGE certification, a recognition which all Steamships properties are aiming to achieve, as part of the company’s commitment to sustainable operations.

With its mixed-use concept, sustainable design, and commitment to innovation, the building is poised to become an iconic hub of progress, fostering growth, and propelling the nation onto the global stage.
