A group of developers have lodged a proposal that would completely transform New Plymouth’s port area by turning unused concrete cool store buildings into apartments, offices, shops and restaurants.

In a resource consent application to New Plymouth District Council (NPDC), which included detailed illustrations, Seaport Land Company Ltd outlined its vision for Fonterra’s former cool stores near Ngāmotu Beach in Moturoa.

The 2.58ha section of industrial land and buildings, which have not been used to store Fonterra products since 2009, went on the market last year and sold to a group of investors in June. The area has a capital value of $8.25 million.
