New 16 Storey Hotel and Serviced Apartment Complex Set for Manukau #ourmanukau #TransformManukau Part 28

Public Notification set for new apartment/hotel tower in Manukau City Centre


Last week someone gave me the heads up via the Tweeters that a new hotel and serviced apartment complex had just gone for notification in Manukau.

I took a look and it sure has with the proposed mixed use complex a decent sodder as well.


From Auckland Council:

12 Lakewood Court, Manukau

Happening now. Open for submissions until 23 April 2018

Application details

The applicant proposes to clear the site of all buildings, and construct and operate a hotel facility that contains 94 rooms and 76 serviced apartments. These activities span over 16 levels and includes two levels of basement car parks. The development also contains commercial and ancillary services which includes a function rooms, restaurant, gym, swimming pool, and professional/retail/café spaces. The application includes an assessment of environmental effects and overall is a restricted discretionary activity.

This is the location:

Lakewood Hotel location
Manukau City Centre


The hotel (94 rooms) and apartments (76) will be in a clustered with existing, under construction and future proposed accommodation areas. There is another 3-star being built in front of the Vodafone Events Centre some 400 metres south.

The consent is set for public notification as the building will be 16 storeys high but sits in Mixed Use zoned land that has an 8-storey limit. The Manukau Metropolitan Centre zone across the road has an 18 storey limit.


Unitary Plan recommended Manukau (and implemented)
Metro Zone in dashed pink

Never mind.

The Sebel, Lakewood Plaza, 12 Lakewood Court, The Ramada over at Vodafone Events Centre, and the one next to the Z station on the Great South Road (the land is consented for a hotel) are all cases of large hotels and/or apartments ranging from 3 star to 5 star currently under way and in some cases soon to be operational. Great news for Southern Auckland in terms of jobs and opportunities, and tourism and business/function/conference dollars being spent here as well.

Up to Panuku Development Auckland now to get Redoubt Road, Manukau Station Road and the Great South Road road a bit more humane especially to cross while converting Lakewood Court into a shared space with some beautification of the area.


The above from San Layton City in Cities Skylines showing how to do a pedestrian mall that still allows service and taxi access. The bus station is behind and is accessed by a 4-lane road on one side and a 2-lane busway on the other. Area also has Light and Heavy Rail so pretty close resemblance to Manukau itself.
