Invercargill Licensing Trust’s new hotel is closer to becoming a reality. After being negatively received by the public over fears the hotel would be too tall and that its construction would cause too many side effects.
ILT’s chief executive Chris Ramsay said all has been done that could be at this point and all is up to the council who will determine the hotel’s outcome at a hearing, beginning on the 28th.
During initial public consultations, nearby businesses were concerned about the building process. For instance, concerns about the crane heights during construction have been addressed, as engineers have guaranteed the crane will stay below 46 metres high.
If all goes well in the hearing for ILT the demolition will begin February.
