In partnership with Precinct Properties, Warren and Mahoney is pleased with the announcement that construction of the One Queen Street redevelopment will shortly commence.
Building on the success of Commercial Bay since opening almost one year ago, this second stage will comprise a luxury hotel, premium office accommodation and a variety of unique food and beverage options. Importantly, the revised scheme remains fully integrated into the Commercial Bay retail precinct.
Scott Pritchard, Precinct’s Chief Executive said, “Following the decision around a year ago to defer the project due to COVID-19, resolving the best approach to the redevelopment of One Queen Street in a changed market has remained a key focus for our business. One Queen Street occupies one of the most prominent positions within Auckland’s city centre so ensuring the building is contributing to the city centre and to Commercial Bay has been a priority for Precinct. We are very excited to be announcing the recommencement of this project and further progressing the creation of a world class destination”.
Levels 6 to 11 of the 5 Star Green Star building will comprise the hotel guest floors for the 139-room InterContinental branded hotel. The balance of the floors will accommodate around 14,000 square metres of premium grade office space, and a roof-top bar on Level 21.
Project Principal Blair Johnston says the commencement of One Queen Street represents a unique opportunity to deliver on the ambition and vision for Commercial Bay through the creation of a true mixed-use community in the heart of the Auckland CBD.
“One Queen amplifies the potential of the precinct by curating a self-reinforcing combination of uses. In this manner One Queen delivers a totally integrated experience, supporting the extension of daily trade, catalysing the night time economy, and expanding the public amenity available at Auckland’s premier address."
Completion is due in late 2023.
