Wanted: High quality hotel for Dunedin

Dunedin's council is seeking interest from developers for a high quality hotel in a central city site after the last hotel proposed was canned.

The large site in a car park on Moray PlFilleul Str was earmarked for a proposed five-star hotel and apartments development by Tekapo businessman Anthony Tosswill.

​However, the bid from Tosswill's NZ Horizons Hospitality Group was rejected by council-appointed commissioners in 2017.

Panuku highlights potential risks amidst a softening property market

Auckland Council development agency Panuku says delays and risks associated with some of its projects are due to the state of the Super City’s property market.

Panuku, a Council Controlled Organisation (CCO), was established by the Auckland Council in 2015 after the merger of Waterfront Auckland and Auckland Council Properties Limited (ACPL).

It now manages around $3 billion of land and buildings owned by the council and is also involved in a number of major urban regeneration projects in the region, including those in Avondale, Manukau, Hobsonville, Meadowbank and Henderson.
