Lakeview Precinct design progressing at pace
The planning for the 10 hectare Lakeview precinct on the shores of Lake Wakatipu is continuing at pace.
With the successful development agreement between Queenstown Lakes District Council and Melbourne-based developer Ninety Four Feet and Augusta Capital being signed in October last year, Architectus and Monk MacKenzie have been working together on both the design development of the plan, and the preliminary design and resource consent for the first deliverable stages.
The Lakeview Precinct will become an active and complementary extension of the existing town centre. This precinct will offer residential buildings, hotels, co-working and co-living spaces, and hospitality and retail. Construction will be phased over seven stages and is estimated to take more than ten years to complete.
Lakeview is a strategically important and rare place-making opportunity for Queenstown. The central location affords the opportunity to expand the existing village centre into a vibrant mixed-use precinct. In doing so, it provides the opportunity to transform Queenstown’s future, offering the growing resident population a place to live, work, socialise, and relax whilst providing best-in-class accommodation and amenities for visitors, both local and international.
