Façade works start on Park Hyatt hotel
The vista of the eastern edge of Wynyard Quarter is set to be transformed with the façade of the new five-star Park Hyatt hotel now ready to be wrapped around the seven-storey building.
The design of the exterior centres on the notion of a Maori cloak around the building; a double skin offering warmth, privacy and beauty.
Due to open in 2019, when completed the hotel will be the first Park Hyatt to open in New Zealand and comprise 195 rooms with food and beverage outlets, event spaces, a spa, fitness centre and a 25-metre pool.
As part of the development, a stunning water’s edge promenade will open up part of the Viaduct Harbour previously closed off to public.
