Dunedin’s council is seeking interest from developers for a high quality hotel in a central city site after the last hotel proposed was canned.

The large site in a car park on Moray PlFilleul Str was earmarked for a proposed five-star hotel and apartments development by Tekapo businessman Anthony Tosswill.

​However, the bid from Tosswill’s NZ Horizons Hospitality Group was rejected by council-appointed commissioners in 2017.

“Our decision to decline the application was significantly influenced by the visual impact the development would have and shading effects on parts of the central city,” commissioner Andrew Noone said.
