Hi *|FNAME|*, Please find below Urban Development News from the media from the week of 11 September 2018.

Major growth on way for the Auckland South

Options for transport networks and use of land for future housing and jobs in Drury-Opāheke and Pukehohe-Paerata are available for public consultation from 10 September.

Specialists from Auckland Council and the Supporting Growth Alliance will be available at a number of public information events to explain ideas that will be developed as part of structure plans to significantly urbanise the south over 10 to 30 years.

The Supporting Growth Alliance is a partnership between NZ Transport Agency and Auckland Transport to investigate and plan networks in the north, northwest and south that will account for 30 per cent of the region’s growth by 2050.


Ideas for ultra-high rise next to Auckland's Sky Tower

A dense urban forest and a lift that takes residents straight to the doors of their apartments are among the ideas for Auckland's next soaring high-rise.

Five architecture firms presented pitches on Thursday afternoon for a $200m high-rise at 65 Federal Street, a spot adjacent to Auckland's Sky Tower.

Not all pitches complied with Auckland Council regulations – firms were asked to pitch one idea that followed the council's Unitary Plan rules and one that didn't.

Designation approved for next stage of AMETI Eastern Busway

Designation has been approved for the next stage of AMETI Eastern Busway between Panmure and Pakuranga, which means the land required for the project has the approvals to proceed.

The announcement comes after more than three years of detailed public consultation and a Notice of Requirement process that culminated in a hearing late last year.


Thousands of new homes in Mt Roskill redevelopment

The Government is continuing to tackle the housing crisis with a transformational programme to build around 10,000 new homes for families in Mt Roskill that will be linked up to Auckland’s communities through the planned light rail line, Housing and Urban Development Minister Phil Twyford has announced.

Phil Twyford today unveiled the Mt Roskill Development at the site of a newly built state house. Similar in scale to the Mangere Development, the 143 hectare Mt Roskill Development will be built over the next 10 to 15 years.

“Not only will this redevelopment provide families in Mt Roskill with high-quality new, homes, it’ll provide the infrastructure to cope with growth and connect with the planned light rail line.
