RCP has been the programme and project managers for the Lakeview Development Plan in Queenstown since 2011.
Comprising a complex programme of works incorporating numerous separate private sector developments, council delivered infrastructure and the primary ‘Lakeview Precinct’ (procured under a single Master Developer); Lakeview is arguably the best development opportunity Queenstown has seen and the last land holding of its size, in such close proximity to the town centre.
A comprehensive Transaction Strategy setting out tenure, council-led delivery recommendations and the integration of adjacent developments informed the Procurement Plan, which set out the market sounding, Expressions of Interest and closed Request for Development Proposals Stages. Recognising the scale and importance of the development to the region, RCP designed a bespoke procurement process which included senior council delegates, supporting a robust and transparent process for the selection of the master developer. RCP has since led the development of the Management Case for the Implementation Business Case and are supporting QLDC with final negotioations with the preferred bidder.
