PM To Open Stage One Of $70 Million Project Tomorrow

Prime Minister To Open Stage One Of $70 Million Project Tomorrow

The Alpers Ave Redevelopment Group is looking forward to tomorrow morning's opening by the Prime Minister and the Building & Construction Minister of Stage One of the $70 million Alpers Ave Redevelopment Project.

Over the next three years, the Alpers Ave Redevelopment Project will transform the southern end of Newmarket, New Zealand's premier retail district, around the site of the old Carlton Bowling Club.

The project, which is the brainchild of Remuera businessman Donghua Liu, will involve the development of open spaces, high-value residential apartments, education facilities and a new five-star hotel.

Stage One is the refurbishment of the Boulevard Hotel to a new four-star standard, just in time for the Rugby World Cup. New Zealand construction and fittings have been used throughout.

"My vision is to create buildings and open spaces that fit with Newmarket's already proud heritage and community and help promote New Zealand tourism to visitors from China and elsewhere," Mr Liu, a New Zealand resident since 2004, said today.

"I am honoured to have the opportunity to contribute to the economic development of New Zealand and China, and I'm proud that the Prime Minister will be joining us tomorrow."
