QUEENSTOWN COMMUNITY RECREATION DEVELOPMENT

 Print Page

June, 2022

Local community and recreation groups keen to make use of the new

facility at 516 Ladies Mile can now submit an expression of interest to

the Queenstown Lakes District Council (QLDC).

This follows the recent approval of just over $3.66M to proceed with

retrofitting the existing house on the property into a multi-purpose

community facility.

QLDC Sport and Recreation Manager, Simon Battrick, said that Ignite

Architects had been appointed  following a competitive tender process

 to design the space and the expression of interest submissions would

help the council better plan for how the space can be used.

Its exciting to start the next phase of the project to determine design

and use. Weve already received over 300 community ideas via our

recent open day which will form part of the brief to the architects. The

expression of interest process will help us to refine the community need

and work through how we can accommodate a diverse range of activity

and interest groups with the limited space available, he said.

Lake Hayes and Shotover Country Community Association Chair Anita

Golden said it was great to see the project moving forward.

The community has provided a lot of feedback for Ignite Architects to

consider and were excited to see what they come up with in their

initial design plans. Were hopeful for a functional facility that allows us

to come together and connect with other community members, said Ms

Golden.

Ignite Architects Associate Director, Jeremy Dunlop said it was an

exciting project to be part of  bringing an iconic landmark back to life.

For me personally, it is an exciting project to be involved with as it is

located in the heart of my own local neighbourhood. It will be a great

place for people of all ages who live in the area to gravitate to for a

wide range of activities and will hopefully grow and develop over time,

he said.
