Billion-dollar Queenstown development dubbed ‘Alpine Britomart’ a step closer to reality ~ Lakeview | Taumata, the stunning residential, hospitality, and retail precinct planned as an expansion to Queenstown’s CBD has taken a significant step forward with the first stages referred into the Government’s expert consenting panel for consideration under the Fast Track Consenting Act 2020 (FTCA).
Sustainability is central to the project with carbon conscious construction methods using mass timber to be utilized throughout the precinct making Lakeview a leader in sustainable development, while improving the health and wellbeing outcomes of residents.
Daniel Moroder, President of the NZ Timber Society is supportive of what is to be New Zealand’s largest timber project, “With mass timber as the primary building material, this innovative building will sequester many tons of carbon from the atmosphere, following global trends in sustainable construction. This new development will enhance Queenstown while showcasing the use of mass timber to provide a living environment which is both aesthetically pleasing and enhances the wellbeing of residents.”
Endorsement from construction contractor Naylor Love CEO Rick Herd, speaks to the timeliness of the project and the positive impact the development will have for the Lakes District region.
