Redevelopment of Wanaka Yacht Club facility proposed
The Wanaka Yacht Club plans to redevelop its existing 140sqm lakefront facility to cater for its growing membership.
The new architecturally-designed clubhouse has an estimated cost of $1.6 to $1.9 million.
The proposed facility will be approximately 558sqm and include boat storage on the ground floor, changing rooms and public areas on the mid-level, and a race control hub, office space and meeting room on the third level.
The plans also present an opportunity for a public café.
An independent feasibility and sustainability study will be undertaken before a resource consent application is lodged with Queenstown Lakes District Council.
“We’re excited to create a world-class sailing facility for our existing and future members, as well as the wider Wanaka community,” Wanaka Yacht Club commodore Jeff Mercer said.
“Our current building is starting to show its age and we have simply outgrown it. We need to upgrade our facilities for the enjoyment of our members over the next 30 years and beyond.”
