Shundi Customs Limited has lodged a resource content application for a 68-room hotel on Frankton Road that is less than 1 kilometre from the CBD.
It has mentioned that is a lack of abundant visitor accommodation inside the resort.
The hotel was formerly occupied by a motel and would be two and a half levels off Frankton Road but five levels on its southern side since the site slopes down towards the lake. Last year Auckland and Chinese shareholders who are the owners of Shundi Customs Limited had purchased the 4656 square metre site surrounded by motels and hotels for over $10.4 million.
Last year the company received resource consent for a 52-storey apartment tower in the Auckland CBD.
The Queenstown hotel is designed by Dunedin-based Ashley Muir whose firm, Wales & Mason Architects had produced two earlier plans for the site. Mr. Muir said that the clients are actually experienced hotel operators and they are very serious about putting a very good hotel into Queenstown.
The resource consent application indicated that the hotel includes 65 guest rooms that are king-sized and also three two-bedroom guest apartments.
There are meeting and conference rooms and a restaurant and a lobby with a reflecting pond.
