Significant progress will be made on the Invercargill city block rebuild in 2021, including the new Invercargill Licensing Trust’s Langlands Hotel.
Already, new signs of life are popping up within the development, with the ILT’s hotel starting to really take shape.
The hotel would soon start to have its internal fit out as well as cladding and facade materials on the outside.
One of the main features of the hotel included a rooftop bar on the seventh floor with 360 degree views once it was opened in early 2022.
Building framework for the Farmers store was also underway and the CBD carpark area would be completed in 2021, with the department store ready for May 2022 along with 15 others.
It was expected up to 250 workers would be involved in the next stage of the CBD development, which will eventually see 50 new stores in the area.
