Consent granted, tenders call for new 72 bed hotel in Manukau
The Twitter account Auckland Urban Development (@AKLUrbanDev ) tweets often the latest urban developments happening in Auckland. The account gave me the heads up last night of a new hotel development to occur in Manukau City Centre on the back of three more currently under construction.
From Trade Me:
Resource consented for accommodation
|Location:||754 Great South Road, Manukau, Manukau City, Auckland|
|Property use:||Development site|
|Price:||To be sold by tender (closes on 13 Apr)|
• Resource consent for an eight level accommodation facility
• Strategic location experiencing significant growth and transformation
• Its all happening here – close proximity to bus and rail transport, Manukau CBD, AUT campus, Westfield Manukau, Vodafone Events centre and Auckland Airport
Manukau has been one of Auckland’s fastest growth areas for the last five years. This growth has been supported by the transformation of Manukau train station, AUT University and favourable high density zoning.
Several significant developments are underway in this location, including Ramada Hotel and Lakewood Plaza apartments, confirming the strength of this position.
The property has a resource consent for 72 accommodation rooms and conference centre with 65 car parks.
Consented propositions like this are not common and present a unique opportunity that should be considered seriously.
Agency reference #: 1901613

As noted the zone is Mixed Use at eight storeys so perfect for a small hotel development to go along here.
This is on the back of the 15 storey Lakewood Plaza (currently under construction), 9 storey Sebel (on final fit out) and the Ramada in front of the Vodafone Events Centre.
Seems Manukau is becoming the alternative destination to the City Centre when it comes to mid and high end accommodation!
Now to get the streetscape and the transit systems upgraded to match.
