Four developers have expressed interest in building a ‘‘high quality’’ hotel on Dunedin’s Filleul St car park site, the Dunedin City Council says.
The four parties have all filed formal expressions of interest following an invitation to the market from the DCC in October.
The deadline to file the expressions of interest was on Friday.
This afternoon, Enterprise Dunedin director John Christie said the interest brought the possible development of a hotel on the site ‘‘a step closer’’.
‘‘A project of this scale is a big undertaking and the amount of work required shows the four parties who have put forward submissions are obviously interested in developing this site.
‘‘This site was identified as a prime location for a hotel development by previous councils.’’
The site had been advertised internationally and developers who have previously been interested in the site were advised and could also take part in the process.
A staff report assessing the registrations of interest would be presented to the full council next year, and councillors would decide the next steps, he said.
