This prominent greenfield site on 712 Great South Road in Manukau listed for sale by Bayleys Real Estate, offers a tactical solution to Greater Auckland’s critical accommodation shortage of hotel rooms.
With Auckland estimated to need as many as 4000 more hotel rooms by 2025 and only about 3000 rooms reportedly planned, a 4.5 star hotel at Manukau’s motorway interchange would see as much success as the Novotel Auckland Ellerslie achieved in a short time, and still not satisfy Auckland’s long-standing short supply of hotel rooms.
Strategically located at Manukau’s vast motorway interchange connecting the Southern and South Western Motorways to Great South Road, the level site is perfect for quality hotel accommodation and/or serviced apartments.
Woodhams Meikle Zhan, one of Auckland’s leading architectural firms have developed conceptual plans to demonstrate the site’s exceptional capabilities to potentially host two separate buildings, one of which could be up to 7 levels and enjoying unobstructed 360 degree profiling.
Considering the vast commercial precincts of Mt. Wellington, East Tamaki, Highbrook, Manukau, Wiri and Airport host thousands of business who in turn host thousands of out of town visitors, quality hotel accommodation in Manukau could be a welcome relief. In particular for time-sensitive business travellers calling on their local counterparts in South Auckland and for whom additional travel to downtown Auckland accommodation is largely undesirable.
Such is the demand for hotel accommodation in precincts South of Mt. Wellington, that Goodman are reportedly doubling their Quest Highbrook’s capacity within just ten years of their first building. The Waipuna in Mt. Wellington, just under 8kms North West of Highbrook remains a very sought-after venue and the best capacity expansion endeavours in the Airport precinct remain distant from the demand curve.
With Manukau City itself being home to Auckland Airport, the Vodafone Event Centre, a world-class Vector Wero Whitewater Park, The Rainbow’s End and intense industry, 712 Great South Road is a rare trophy opportunity not to missed.
