Hilton for Wellington

The Dom Post reports:

A five-star Hilton Hotel looks increasingly certain to be built on the capital’s waterfront.

Wellington Waterfront chief executive Ian Pike said the project had been on hold until after a Wellington City Council vote on a district plan change.

The council voted to accept Variation 11 on Wednesday night, in effect clearing the way for three new buildings to go up on the city’s shoreline at Kumutoto Wharf.

The luxury hotel chain has been in negotiations with the council about building on so-called site 10, where the all-clear has been given for a 30-metre-high building.

Yay. We badly need a five star hotel in Wellington, It is a pity the original site next to Dockside was turned down, as the existing sports building is an absolute eyesore.
