All 4 commercial properties sell at 2 Colliers auctions

Colliers has sold 4 commercial properties at auction in East Tamaki, Onehunga & Takapuna in the last 2 days.

The East Tamaki warehouse was sold at a sub-4% yield, and the other 3 all had complicated stories to tell.

The Onehunga Mall property (outlined in picture above looking towards the Manukau Harbour) – 2 adjoining buildings with some retail frontage on a side street – has upstairs vacancy and was offered as a prospect for refurbishment or redevelopment.

In Takapuna, the 2 properties on Barrys Point Rd & one on Bracken Avenue were put forward with earnings potential double the present income.

The East Tamaki auction on Tuesday attracted strong bidding. All 3 auctions yesterday were protracted, with multiple bidders but pressure on the vendor to reduce the reserve.

Council sees survey results as mandate and continues with central Takapuna revitalisation plans

Auckland Council & its development arm, Panuku Development Auckland, proclaimed support on Wednesday from 2 surveys on their Takapuna town square plans, and will continue with design work in collaboration with the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board.

Panuku will seek expressions of interest from development partners to work with on delivering the vision for the project.

In a related project, construction will start in October on a 5-storey 420-space parking building on the gasometer site fronting Huron, Northcroft & Auburn Sts, 200m from the existing ground-level 250-space parking lot at 40 Anzac St whose proposed replacement has raised many North Shore hackles.

The new parking building will have electric car- & bike-charging stations, bike storage, motorbike parking, accessibility parking & “end of trip” facilities, including changing rooms.

The council said support for a new town square & revitalisation on the 40 Anzac St carpark had come through public consultation & an independent representative survey conducted by Colmar Brunton.

In the council-run consultation, 55% of the 5385 people who responded were in support. In the survey, 69% of the 563 respondents preferred one of the 2 development proposals.

Earlier community engagement identified the 2 preferred sites for the town square. One between Hurstmere & Lake Rds was preferred by 46% in the consultation and 40% in the independent survey.

The council’s planning committee & the local board were briefed on the results of the consultation at a workshop on Wednesday.

The Panuku project for a town square has initial designs showing a mix of residential, commercial & public space, with activated laneways linking it to Hurstmere Rd. Panuku has proposed that 40 Anzac St be developed to include a town square, shops, businesses & homes.

Auckland Council’s development committee approved the broad plan to revitalise central Takapuna in March 2016.

On 6 March, the council’s planning committee granted a change of use for 40 Anzac St, subject to the conditions set by the hearings panel.
