Plans for a five star, 28-storey luxury hotel, proposed for Dunedin’s waterfront, have been revealed at Dunedin’s Forsyth Barr Stadium.
The hotel will position the city as a high-end tourism destination and provide a major boost to the region’s economic development.
The proposed hotel will be the tallest building in Dunedin by a significant margin providing uninterrupted views across the city either to Swampy Summit or the Otago peninsula. It will comprise both hotel and apartment accommodation, a swimming pool, a rooftop restaurant, car parks and a penthouse presidential suite.
The $100 million development is currently going through the resource consent process and is destined for completion by 2015.
Or so it says at YouTube.
The city council is pledging to put out the red carpet and not the red tape.
