Expressions of interest: Relocation of a historic cottage

Queenstown Lakes District Council will today call for expressions of interest to relocate a historic cottage in Queenstown. The cottage is privately owned by the Kim family who are working in conjunction with Council with the hope it can be appropriately relocated and restored.

The Gratuity Cottage is a small historic building located at 9 Gorge Rd, Queenstown. Constructed in the 1870s, it is a rare surviving example of a dwelling from the very early years of Queenstown’s history.

The property owners intend to re-develop the land at 9 Gorge Road shortly and all parties are seeking to relocate the cottage to ensure the historic, social and archaeological significance of the building is protected.

Expressions of interest would require a comprehensive proposal for the cottages removal from the existing site and restoration at its new location.

Mr Kim said “we are excited to offer the building to a new owner, who can demonstrate that the building will be relocated safely to a new location befitting its heritage”.

Expression of interest information is available at www.qldc.govt.nz/tenders-and-eois with expressions closing on 16 March.
