An apartment complex is being planned for the central city, and is subject to a resource consent hearing at the Dunedin City Council.
The four-storey complex of 25 apartments is set to be developed in Filleul Street.
Council planners have recommended that resource consent be granted, subject to extensive conditions.
A hearing for the proposal is scheduled for next Wednesday.
The one and two-bedroom apartments will surround a central courtyard, and be constructed in two blocks.
An existing building will be demolished and the site excavated to allow for development.
A version of the application was initially lodged in 2012, but was shelved due to the economic downturn.
