Hooray. Developers wanted to build a whopping great hotel right by the water down by the helicopter terminal. Now they can’t:
The Environment Court has rejected a plan to build a Hilton Hotel on the Wellington waterfront.
The idea was to site the building at Queens Wharf in the central city.
There are already too many cars and vehicles that manage to trundle around down on the waterfront pedestrian area, the last thing we need is another huge hotel (and its traffic) laying claim to what should be public recreational land.
