Earthworks for a three-level car park to be built behind the
former chief post office in Dunedin are expected to start
within a month.
Stephen Cairns of Arrow International said the project had
resource consent, and was awaiting the final stages of its
building consent to be signed off.
The building would be used by patrons of the proposed
Distinction Hotel, to be developed inside the former chief
post office on Princes St.
Consent has also been granted for the construction of a
free-standing canopy between the car park and the former
chief post office on the Bond St side of the building, under
which buses can pull up.
That section of Bond St has officially been stopped and is to
be where the hotel's main entrance will be located.
According to the resource consent the access to the car park,
which would also have some public and leased parking, was
from the Water St side and the exit from Liverpool St.
