Rarely does a corner site within the peripheral Central Business District of Auckland become available for sale. This property is ideally situated within the business environment for a hotel. With ready proximity to the Auckland CBD and it is a connection with an arterial road between the Newmarket and Ponsonby areas of Auckland, this Newton Road intersection connects with Symonds Street through to Ponsonby Road and the Great North Road intersection. It also offers motorway access via the Newton Road on/off ramps down the hill or the Khyber Pass on/off ramps. With access to Upper Queen Street being readily available given its intersection with Newton Road, some 20 metres from the site. Alternatively, Symonds Street again gives direct access to the CBD and it is also a major bus route. The City Rail Link when completed in 2024 will complement the location.
Overall, the 665 m² site within the Mixed Use zoning (Operative Unitary Plan) allows for an 18 metre high development with the upper levels of the hotel to give distant views of the Waitemata Harbour.
