QT HOTELS is set to open its first Auckland property in early 2020, following a management deal between Event Hospitality & Entertainment (EVENT), Russell Property Group and Lockwood Property Group.
EVENT CEO Jane Hastings said Auckland was a key city that had been a missing piece of the QT footprint.
The project will involve converting an existing building into QT Auckland, which will feature over 150 rooms, several conferencing and event spaces, and a new QT dining concept and bar.
The property will be located in Viaduct Harbour, in the city’s downtown entertainment precinct.
Russell Property Group Director Brett Russell said the “harbourside location combined with the unique footprint of the existing building makes this one of the best conversion opportunities available.”
