Queenstown, New Zealand looks set to welcome a new five-star hotel, with developers of Jack’s Point this week confirming residential and hotel planning is “well advanced”.
Jack’s Point, initially flagged in 2016, is a master-planned community that is under development 10 minutes from Queenstown Airport, positioned beneath the Remarkable Mountains and will be around the same size as central Queenstown. At the heart of the project will be a lakefront village.
“The village has been designed to meet both the needs of Jack’s Point’s expanding residential community, which will ultimately reach 8,000, and the demand for a high-quality accommodation and amenities for the region’s increasing number of visitors,” Darby Partners Limited’s principal, John Darby said.
“A five-star waterfront hotel plan [is] soon to be unveiled,” a media statement for the project said.
Jack’s Point Village will provide a mix of visitor accommodation totalling 600 rooms.
“We are now ready for the final phase, to fulfil the village vision for a lively mix of shops, restaurants, small businesses, homes, visitor accommodation and a strong community base,” Darby said.
