The 1.7 hectare site at 187 Campbell Rd in Greenlane is made up of six multi-level wings. It most recently operated as the Kingsgate Hotel with 220 rooms and boasts a total floor area of more than 11,000 square metres. CBRE real estate associate director and agent Colin Stewart says the site has been unoccupied since 2007. There s reasons why these things go mortgagee. Mr Stewart says the venue now has a resource consent to be redeveloped into a 100-room hotel and a 112- room apartment complex. A total of 304 parking spaces were also to be pro- vided, a bar and a conference facility for up to 30 people. He would not say how many queries have been received about the building but says interest has been significant and primarily Auckland-based. A 40-page memo from the realty firm says the proper- ty s wings are set out around a large landscaped area and swimming pool. The Kauri Wing has recently been refurbished to a high standard and a new hotel entry lobby added. The remaining original hotel entry and the Kowhai and Pohutukawa wings are in a derelict state. The Kauri wing consists of a five-level building with 100 newly refurbished hotel rooms. Recessed balconies are a feature of the north facing rooms and all rooms are air- conditioned and feature new aluminium window joinery. The memo also says Camp- bell Rd carries around 16,000 vehicles each day and is a main bus route. But neighbour Maria de Jong describes the venue as a cheap and nasty develop- ment . It was to increase in size and they were trying to cram in as many apartment blocks as possible. It would be great to have a developer who is sensitive to the community and the environment. She says the site is suitable for a large number of perma- nent residents and suggests either a retirement village or some form of low-land inten- sive housing. What is there needs to be bowled so someone can start again. It s unattractive. Something needs to be done -- it couldn t get any worse. The recession has delayed the development and hope- fully someone will approach it with a fresh vision. Tenders closed last month. Property developer Layne Kells did not respond to inquiries from the Central Leader. Clan Gunn gathering Do you have Scottish ances- try?
