Remarkables Park is developing an extensive master planned project of 149ha, designed by the renowned North American planner, Eldon Beck. Located at the future geographical centre of Queenstown, the unique Remarkables Park Zone provides for a mixed use Town Centre with a Quayside Resort Village, extensive high density accommodation options, recreation and community facilities, and a future ferry transport link to the older downtown.
Completed stages include five large format retailers, with further retail expansion in 2004, and approximately 100 residences. Work is currently underway on Stage II of the shopping Centre (approximately 6,000 sqm) commencing with a central plaza providing a multiple food and beverage destination due for completion in September this year. Architecture and quality landscaping that celebrate the region and complement the stunning natural landscape are important components of the project.
The Remarkables Park site enjoys full sun year round and stunning, uninterrupted views of Coronet Peak and The Remarkables mountain range. Much of the zone overlooks the picturesque Kawarau River and to the east the famous Shotover River. Further information about the awards and application forms can be found at www.property.org.nz.
