Allenby Park sale among 4 South Auckland deals

The 68-unit Allenby Park hotel complex in Papatoetoe (pictured above) has been sold as a freehold going concern, one of 4 recent commercial sales in South Auckland by Bayleys. The complex has drive-around access and has recently been upgraded throughout, including a new roof.

Bayleys’ business, tourism & leisure team leader, Paul Dixon, said the new owner had indicated an intention to continue operating the accommodation business although longer term the 8345m² site had potential for further development as site coverage is only 42%.

A Takanini site with a small workshop on it has been sold at auction by Bayleys after competition between 7 bidders lifted the price from a starting offer of $600,000 to an eventual sale to a local owner-occupier, after 84 bids, at $941,000.

Council votes to sell 3 old chambers

Auckland Council’s finance & performance committee agreed yesterday – against strong minority opposition – to sell 7 of its offices & parking lots around the region, including the former council chambers of 3 of the super-city’s predecessor councils.

Committee chair Ross Clow said the sale programme was likely to be spread over 4-6 years.

The debate on outlying properties around the region has raised a conflict between history & familiarity on one side, versus upgrading to more appropriate premises on the other.

Cllr Clow said in a release after the meeting: “This decision is about the next step on our journey towards becoming a fit-for-purpose organisation that makes the most of its assets.

“In making this decision, local communities have been top of mind. Auckland is a big city and residents need to be able to deal with their council face-to-face. The corporate property strategy ensures that all service centres remain open and the strong connection between council & its local communities remains.

“It will also improve our services to Aucklanders, for example, face-to-face access to council regulatory services in all 13 wards rather than in only half, which is the current situation.

“It also puts 96% of Auckland’s population within 10km of a council office.”

Cllr Clow said retaining the former council chamber buildings would have been expensive: “If we did nothing, we forecast having to spend around $200 million on servicing ageing buildings over the next decade, leaving us with a shortfall of $117 million that would need to be found elsewhere.

“At a time when we must prioritise investing in transport, housing & our environment, we simply can’t afford to fund property maintenance on buildings that are no longer fit for purpose.”

The council will invest proceeds from the sale of the properties in its existing property portfolio to ensure it maintains remaining buildings to a high standard.

At Orewa & Pukekohe, the sale of the property will mean relocation of local services.

The buildings & land agreed for sale are:

  • Aotea Quarter, 4-10 Mayoral Drive
  • Victoria Quarter, 35 Graham St (and associated buildings)
  • Henderson, 6 Henderson Valley Rd (excluding the civic building containing the former council chamber)
  • Manukau, 4 Osterley Way
  • Orewa, 50 Centreway Rd
  • Papakura, 35 Coles Crescent
  • Pukekohe, 82 Manukau Rd.

Council to decide sale of old chambers tomorrow

Auckland Council’s finance & performance committee will vote tomorrow to approve the sale of 7 properties, including the chambers of 3 predecessor councils at Orewa, Papakura & Pukekohe.

Parts of the council’s Henderson offices are also on the sale list, but the old Waitakere chamber & Japanese garden, which have heritage status, will be retained.

The committee was to have made its decisions on 17 April, but deferred the debate.

Also on the list are the council’s Graham St office building overlooking the Viaduct waterfront area in the cbd, the parking lot beside the Aotea Centre & Bledisloe House, also in the cbd, and a Manuku office building, Kotuku House.

They have a combined 2017 capital valuation of $190 million.

The disposal proposals have been compiled by the council’s inhouse corporate property team, which has also put together a programme to invest the sale proceeds in a council corporate property network described as “fit-for-purpose & future-proofed” and “aligned to the structure of the organisation”.

The future network is intended to comprise:

  • 1 headquarters at Auckland House (135 Albert St)
  • 3 hubs in the north/west (Albany or Westgate), central (Bledisloe House) and the south (Manukau Civic)
  • 4 new local board spaces where displaced by building closures
  • 17 refreshed local board spaces
  • 7 new customer service centre spaces where displaced by building closures
  • 13 refreshed customer service centres
  • 25 spokes (drop-in spaces created in existing council locations)
  • 78 leisure centre & library back-office areas refreshed, and
  • Records & archives storage optimisation works.
