Skyline Queenstown is a step closer to starting its proposed $60 million gondola redevelopment with its application for resource consent lodged this week.

Coinciding with the consent application, Skyline has today unveiled pictures of what the new iconic complex will look like when complete in 2018. The application to the council is publicly notified and contains details of the extensive work required for the project. The proposed development includes the replacement of its gondola, as well as a major expansion of its upper complex and a brand new lower terminal building.
