City Rail Link above-ground opportunities identified
Development opportunities for up to 20ha of new Auckland CBD and fringe city floor space have been identified around the $3.4 billion City Rail Link, as the time to award the tunnelling and station contracts draws near.
A City Rail Link spokesman said between 190,000sq m and 200,000sq m of gross floor area was possible, including offices and housing.
At Britomart, about17,600sq m could be built, at the new Aotea station near Auckland Council 41,000sqm, at Karangahape 320sq m and at Mt Eden 5000sq m, he said.
Construction will begin this week on a $78 million expansion of one of Auckland's largest shopping centres.
Botany Town Centre will expand its floor area from just over 58,000 square metres to more than 62,700sqm.
AMP Capital portfolio manager Nick Cobham said the development would include adding new retailers, refurbishing its 'Garden Lane' and fresh food precinct next to Work World supermarket, and expanding its "alfresco dining offer".
