Proposed Queenstown apartments will be tallest buildings in town 'by far'

A proposed billion-dollar development will smash Queenstown’s height limits with five buildings about double the permitted levels.

The tallest building in the Taumata/Lakeview project will be a 13-storey, 51.3-metre accommodation block on a site with a 26m height limit.

Details of the proposal have been revealed in an application for the first stage of development.

The public is excluded from the decision process as it is being considered under the Government’s fast-tracking legislation.

Government partners with Ngāti Kahungunu to deliver new homes for whānau

Today, the Minister of Housing Hon Dr Megan Woods and the Associate Minister of Housing (Māori Housing) Peeni Henare announced a further investment in housing to build up to 131 new homes for whānau who need them most.

Ministers Woods, Henare and Jackson joined Ngāti Kahungunu in Wellington this morning to sign the partnership, which follows on from previous agreements with Toitū Tairāwhiti in May and Ka Uruora in April this year as part of the National Māori Housing strategy MAIHI Ka Ora.

“The housing crisis was decades in the making, and we are working hard to turn it around through our housing policy reforms, and the largest Government investment since the 1970s,” Megan Woods said.

“Our programme is building new housing, and our regional economies and construction sector are receiving a boost through our record infrastructure investment, all helping to secure New Zealand’s economy for future generations.āti-kahungunu-deliver-new-homes-whānau
