Lakeview Te Taumata unveils a luxurious lakeside oasis


Queenstown’s landscape is set to be transformed with the launch of Lakeview Te Taumata, a pioneering multi billion dollar lakeside suburb development by renowned Melbourne-based property developer Ninety Four Feet, in conjunction with Centuria Capital Group and visionaries from Auckland’s Britomart precinct. This ambitious venture promises to redefine luxury living, resting on the fringe of Lake Wakitipu and neighboured by the beloved Skyline Gondola.

The project’s scope is sweeping and impressive. Future residents and visitors can anticipate a comprehensive assortment of amenities that encapsulates residential apartments, a co-living building, trio of hotels, a shared working space, health and wellness centres, as well as retail spaces carefully curated to elevate the shopping experience. Supreme dining and an art gallery will round off this offering. Ensuring it’s more than just a place to live and visit, the developers are even exploring the addition of thermal pools, enhancing the area’s appeal as a relaxation and leisure hub.

The architects at the helm have released stunning renders which show the future of the area: stone-wrapped shops and eateries at the street level with one co-living structure and four residential towers making an impressive skyline statement, the highest of which will stretch twelve stories. Even with these substantial structures, over fifty percent of Lakeview Te Taumata is set to be dedicated to green public spaces and pathways, emphasizing community and openness.

Charmaine Balchin, Development Manager at Ninety Four Feet, articulated the collaborations and preparations going into making this project a reality, “Despite global challenges, the Queenstown Lakes District Council has shown remarkable dedication to bringing this ambitious project to fruition. It’s really inspiring to see the precinct forming and we’re excited to bring this community alive with our layers. We anticipate starting construction of the first stage coming out of winter 2024.”

The launch of this illustrious project is scheduled for early 2024, but New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty is already extending invitations to high net worth clients to express their interest. Mark Harris, Managing Director at New Zealand Sotheby’s International, extolled Lakeview Te Taumata as “Queenstown’s first truly world-class master-planned community in the CBD.”

In keeping with the imperative of sustainable living and cultural respect, the development aims to be environmentally net-positive in terms of energy, water, and waste. The involvement of Māori designers and artists, alongside established architects like Monk Mackenzie and Architectus, ensures the new suburb will harmoniously blend into the region’s natural and cultural tapestry.

Prices begin at an accessible $750,000, accommodating a variety of lifestyle choices from single-bedroom homes to lavish penthouses. Lakeview Te Taumata seeks to build on Ninety Four Feet’s success with the $250 million Hotel Indigo Auckland and the imposing 51 Albert sky residences tower in Auckland, continuing their quest to enhance the urban landscapes of New Zealand.
