$200 million tower with sky-high public zen garden announced for Auckland
Auckland's mayor says a 180m tall high-rise planned for Federal St will become a city landmark.
ICD Property will build a $200 million skyscraper at 65 Federal Street, adjacent to the city's iconic Sky Tower.
The Australian company selected a winner in its international design competition to build the company's first iconic high-rise at the Auckland CBD site.
Australian architecture firm Wood Bagot and local partner Peddle Thorp were the victors with their idea for a multi-use high-rise with 226 apartments, 233 five-star hotel rooms, a ground floor market place and a sky-high public zen garden.
Christchurch developer abandons 15-year beach-side apartment plan
After 15 years of trying to build waterfront apartments in Christchurch's New Brighton, a developer has abandoned her plans and put the land up for sale.
The half-hectare block, on Marine Pde about 200 metres south of New Brighton pier, was intended to house over 40 upmarket apartments.
It is near Christchurch City Council revitalisation projects for the neighbourhood including a new $8 million beachside playground and $11.2m hot pools complex. Few private developments have so far succeeded in getting projects launched in the area.
Proposal to transform New Plymouth's port area with apartments, shops, restaurants and office space
A group of developers have lodged a proposal that would completely transform New Plymouth's port area by turning unused concrete cool store buildings into apartments, offices, shops and restaurants.
In a resource consent application to New Plymouth District Council (NPDC), which included detailed illustrations, Seaport Land Company Ltd outlined its vision for Fonterra's former cool stores near Ngāmotu Beach in Moturoa.
The 2.58ha section of industrial land and buildings, which have not been used to store Fonterra products since 2009, went on the market last year and sold to a group of investors in June. The area has a capital value of $8.25 million.
The Auckland Council’s redevelopment agency Panuku Development Auckland has launched Social PinPoint for Panmure as another way to engage with the community on changes happening in their local area.
The website features an aerial map of the project area with the upcoming upgrades of the town centre's streetscape and community facilities highlighted for feedback until 5 December. Users’ views will be passed for review to the Panmure project team and where appropriate applied to the design or running of the upgrades.
