The Government & SkyCity Entertainment Group Ltd have agreed to a 31 May deadline for a revised preliminary design for the international convention centre proposed for the block between Hobson & Nelson Sts.
Economic Development Minister Steven Joyce said yesterday the 2 parties had made good progress after the Government turned down the design proposal last October, when the total construction cost exceeded the costs set out in the convention centre agreement.
Mr Joyce said: “This is a large and complex project. There are some matters that need resolution before the revised proposal is submitted for approval by ministers & the SkyCity board.”
