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.

Takapuna office building sells at 6.4%, auctionroom stalls

An office building occupied by the NZ Institute of Education’s Takapuna campus (pictured) has been sold by Barfoot & Thompson Commercial agents at a 6.4% yield.

Across at the agency’s city auction session this morning, a retail space at Glen Eden without even a disclosed size didn’t attract a bidder and the auction of an Aura apartment, having gone close to a sale, stalled – and it was passed in half an hour later.

Given that auctionroom non-performance, I’ll limit my visits to auctions where same-day outcomes look a reasonable prospect.
