A change to height limits in the heritage Britomart precinct has been proposed to allow for a luxury hotel.
Cooper and Company plan to build a five-star harbour-front hotel on Quay St, incorporating two historic buildings. The private company, formerly known as Bluewater, holds a contract from Auckland City Council to manage development at the Britomart precinct.
