Watch out, Amsterdam — Sydney is about to supersize one of its brothels by adding a third story with seven suites featuring a spa, pool table and two sets of king beds, according to the .

The $12.7 million expansion of Stilleto will likely make the brothel the biggest in Australia, according to Michael O'Brien of Artazan, the company managing the project. The brothel's 20 working rooms will increase to 40, double the size of its closest competitor.

The brothel caters to a range of clients, including lawyers, movie stars, accountants and professional athletes. It also appears to be targeting group bookings with its new suites.

''It sounds like it's a facility for friends to go along in groups and book the room for a couple of hours, have a few drinks, play pool and do the deed,'' Chris Seage, a former consultant to the legal brothel industry, told the Herald.

Not everyone is thrilled by Stilleto's proposed expansion. Stiletto neighbor Nicholas Bishop told the Herald that the brothel doesn't reflect the local community. "We live in a residential area largely populated by families and university students,'' he said.

Bishop may not have much recourse; brothels are legal in some Australian territories and states, including New South Wales.
