QT Hotels & Resorts has announced QT Auckland, a new hotel on Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour.
As per a management agreement with Russell Property Group, QT Hotels & Resorts will convert the existing building at 4 Viaduct Harbour Avenue into one of its signature hotels. Located in Auckland downtown precinct, the hotel will feature over 150 rooms as well as conferencing and event spaces, and a new QT signature dining concept and bar.
The design hotel will join QT’s portfolio of nine other properties across New Zealand and Australia, including QT Museum Wellington and QT Queenstown.
Having worked on previous QT hotels, Australian interior designer Nic Graham will yet again oversee the interiors, designing thoughtful areas for both locals and visitors.
“This a fantastic site, particularly in terms of its proximity and we’re thrilled to have secured a management contract in partnership with the Russell and Lockwood Property Groups. QT Hotels are created to be distinctively unique to their location and Auckland will be no exception,” said Simon White, general manager of hotel operations, Event Hospitality and Entertainment New Zealand.
Dominion Constructors Limited will complete the works and the hotel is expected to open in early 2020.
“The decision to convert 4 Viaduct Harbour Avenue to a hotel was an easy one; the strategic harbourside location combined with the unique footprint of the existing building makes this one of the best conversion opportunities available,” said Brett Russell, director, Russell Property Group.
