Theres already keen interest from prospective tenants in Skyline

Enterprises new $26 million redevelopment of iconic downtown

Queenstown landmark OConnells Pavilion shopping mall.

Skyline Enterprises property manager Alastair Clifford says the project

has taken three years of intense planning so far and he expects both

local and international brands to take up the new tenancies. We also

believe a number of the food hall operators will be offshoots of existing

businesses in Queenstown, he says.

Developed in the mid-1980s, the four-storey, 4000sqm shopping mall

was the first city-style development of its kind for Queenstown and has

served the community well for more than 30 years. The old building

closed early last month (February) and contractors moved onto the site

in mid-February.

Each of the Pavilions four floors will be modified to retain a mix of

retail and commercial spaces, as well as keeping the ground floor food


We're delighted to be able to give Queenstown the modern, 21st

Century mall it deserves, says Alastair. This major redevelopment will

revitalize the building inside and out. The design is stunning and we're

sure this will be a focal point and also a primary shopping destination

for Queenstowners and visitors for the next 30 years, and beyond.

The striking new building has been designed by Queenstown architect

Preston Stevens and is expected to reopen for business in November,


Vehicle access to Cow Lane from Camp Street will close for most of the

construction period, however, access to lower Cow Lane will continue to

be available from Beach Street. Pedestrian access will be maintained

throughout via a container walkway.

Construction work will be confined to the hours of 7.30am to 6pm,

Monday to Saturday, with no work on Sundays or public holidays. A

comprehensive noise and vibration plan has been developed to reduce

the impact on neighbouring businesses.

The OConnells Pavilion redevelopment is Skyline Properties second

major commercial building project in central Queenstown in recent

years. In 2016, the company opened the iconic Eichardts Building on

Marine Parade  complementing the areas luxury precinct.

The company is also investing more than $150 million into an upgrade of

its iconic gondola and complex on nearby Bobs Peak.
