Many of the apartment buildings in Brisbane are "class 2" buildings -- which means they are for residential use. To operate a hotel, the building must be a class 3 building.
A number of onsite managers operate hotels from class 2 buildings. An example is Oaks. Many owners are not happy with this situation. See prior posts for example.
At M on Mary, an owner tried to stop the onsite manager operating a short term rental operation from the building, on the basis that the building was only a class 2 building. A decision of the Tribunal said that it did not have the power to deal with this issue. See decision.
