North Head transfer completes maunga authority control of cones

Legal administration of Maungauika/North Head transfers from the Department of Conservation to the Tupuna Maunga o Tamaki Makaurau Authority today, the last of 14 transfers begun in 2014 under the Nga Mana Whenua o Tamaki Makaurau Collective Redress Act.

The other 13 tupuna maunga (ancestral mountains), which Auckland Council had administered, returned to the 13 iwi/hapu of Tamaki immediately as part of the co-governance regime between the Tamaki collective of iwi/hapu & the council, but administration of Maungauika remained with DoC as an interim step.

The authority is a co-governance body with 6 iwi representatives, 6 Auckland Council representatives & one non-voting Crown representative. The authority is independent of Auckland Council and has its own decisionmaking powers & functions.

Authority chair Paul Majurey said the final transfer was an important step in integrating the management of all maunga in Tamaki Makaurau.

“In 2016 we adopted the tupuna maunga integrated management plan to care for & protect the maunga of Tamaki Makaurau in a cohesive way. DoC have helpfully been aligning their management of Maungauika to the values in the plan. The transfer now allows a focused effort on restoring Maungauika consistent with the other maunga. It enables these special places to be treated as a collective whole and forever valued, restored, protected & managed as the taonga tukuiho (treasures handed down the generations) that they are.”

Parking at Maungauika, in Devonport, is located halfway up the mountain, and the tihi (summit) is already a pedestrian space. Mr Majurey said: “We know that Maungauika will be a focal point for a large number of visitors around the America’s Cup event in March 2021, so we will be looking towards management initiatives to ensure visitor safety & enjoyment of the maunga during this high profile event.”

Augusta slots new single-asset fund in ahead of tourism fund

Augusta Capital Ltd has delayed the launch of its tourism fund while it raises new capital for its industrial fund and starts a new single-asset fund.

The single-asset fund will hold a mixed-use property in Brisbane. It’s at 255-271 Gympie Rd, Kedron, and comprises 5 office, retail & childcare buildings. The property’s 6 tenancies are all occupied, giving a weighted average lease term of 7.7 years.

Augusta managing director Mark Francis said just before Christmas the new fund would acquire the property for $A21.52 million. Settlement is scheduled for 29 March. Augusta intends to raise $A15.1 million of equity, using a debt facility to fund the balance of the purchase price & establishment costs. Augusta expects to receive an offeror’s fee of about $A700,000. The offer won’t be underwritten and is expected to open in mid-February.

As a result of the timing of this offer and the timing of the Augusta Industrial Fund’s next capital-raising in February-March, Mr Francis said Augusta had determined to delay the establishment of the Augusta Tourism Fund until later in 2019. The 2 properties so far intended to go into it – 54 Cook St in Auckland & 7-19 Man St in Queenstown – will continue to be held on Augusta’s balance sheet until the tourism fund is established.

Kiwi Property buys site across tracks from Sylvia Park

Kiwi Property Group Ltd has acquired 43 Carbine Rd – across the railway tracks from the Sylvia Park shopping centre in Mt Wellington – for $25 million.

The 22,086m² site has warehousing & yard facilities, is opposite the Sylvia Park train station and is zoned mixed use under the Auckland unitary plan. Kiwi Property bought it with vacant possession.

Chief executive Clive Mackenzie said yesterday it had potential linkages to the shopping centre:  “While we have no immediate plans for the site beyond leasing the existing premises to make use of the warehousing & yard facilities on site, this acquisition will provide future mixed-use opportunities at Sylvia Park.”
