Lakeview Development

Te Mahere Whakaahu mō Lakeview

Project History

In July 2016, the Lakeview land in central Tāhuna Queenstown was rezoned from high Density Residential to Queenstown Town Centre (under Plan Change 50). This was based on an identified need for the expansion of the Queenstown town centre, in order to provide for and facilitate economic growth. Both visitor and population growth continue to exceed expectations and the town centre requires continued investment to accommodate that.

In October 2019, we signed a development agreement with Melbourne-based developer Ninety Four Feet and Auckland-based investment company Augusta Capital for development of the Lakeview land. Through this partnership, and others with Ngāi Tahu Tourism and Well Smart Ltd, the Lakeview Precinct will become a vibrant and complementary extension of the existing town centre. The site will offer residential buildings, hotels, co-working and co-living spaces, hospitality and retail, and a hot pools attraction. Construction will be phased over seven stages and is estimated to take more than ten years to complete.

Please note: Queenstown Lakeview Holiday Park is currently not affected by the development plans for the wider Lakeview land and continues to be open for business. They offer a wide range of accommodation options including self-contained units, one bedroom studios and open plan studios. The Holiday Park has an extensive camping area which offers sites suitable for campervans, caravans, tenting, and are supported by modern, well serviced facilities. 

The tenanted cabins on the Lakeview land (excluding the Queenstown Lakeview Holiday Park) are managed by property manager Harcourts Queenstown.
