Australian apartment development company ICD is planning to build a 48 level apartment block and hotel just a few metres from Auckland's Sky Tower.
The building is planned for the corner of Federal and Kingston Streets in Auckland's CBD, putting it midway between the Sky City casino and St Patrick's Cathedral.
The site is across the road from Rydges Hotel and is currently occupied by a multi-level parking building.
It will be 180 metres high and incorporate 226 apartments and a 233 room, five star hotel.
The ground floor will contain a vendor market with bars and eateries.
ICD held an architecture competition with five architecture firms submitting designs for the building.
The winning design (pictured) was submitted by Melbourne-based architects Wood Bagot in conjunction with local firm Peddle Thorp.
The project is expected to cost $200 million and ICD expects to complete the project in 2022.
