CAR-STACKING DEVELOPMENT FOR QUEENSTOWN

 Print Page

October, 2019

A car-stacking facility has been proposed for central Queenstown.

Erna and Antonius Spijkerbosch have applied to the Queenstown Lakes

District Council for resource consent for a fully-automated, 37-

vehicle"Puzzle Stacker' on land they own in Hylton Pl.

Supplied by Auckland company ICloud Parking Solutions, the five-level

stacker would be housed in an 11-metre-tall structure, on a 150sqm

footprint, on a site between Queenstown Holiday Park Creeksyde, which

the couple owns and operates, and Fresh Choice supermarket.

Mrs Spijkerbosch said they believed it would be the first of its type in

New Zealand.

A facility in Hamilton used a different system, while a two-level stacker

in the recently-opened Ramada Hotel, in Stanley St, was manually

operated by a valet.

They began thinking about the venture after being approached by a

property development company looking for staff parking, she said.

They also noticed many new developments in the Gorge Rd area,

including a couple of hotels, were being consented with "fewer car

parks provided than might be needed'.

They were confident there would be strong demand for the parks, and

hoped to find an operator to lease all of them on an annual basis.

Although the cost of the facility had yet to be finalised, she expected it

to be in the region of $1.5million.

All going well, she hoped it would be operating by next winter.

In the Spijkerboschs' application, consultant planner Ben Farrell said the

building would be "largely hidden away from public spaces', was set

back from the street and screened by surrounding buildings and

vegetation.

Although it would generate some traffic into the area, vehicle

movements would be infrequent and ``indiscernible' compared to those

of the supermarket next door.
