Farmers promises a flagship store at Sylvia Park


Farmers has pledged to build a large store at Auckland's Sylvia park mall if an $180 million retail extension goes ahead.
Mall owner Kiwi Property said Farmers had agreed to lease 8000 square metres for a new two-level flagship store, which would anchor a 20,000 square metre proposed "galleria".
Kiwi's chief executive Chris Gudgeon said the company hoped to give the green light to the expansion project by mid-2018.

Controversial marina apartment development back on drawing board

Controversial plans for 300 apartments on Bayswater Marina are back, after earlier being defeated in court, and residents were welcomed to an information day ahead of the next resource consent attempt.
A long-time Bayswater resident and rower's parent, Sharon Norman, said she was worried about the proposed development.
"There are very few places with access to the water for sports. It's a unique space. We could do something incredible with it, but I am not in favour of apartments," Norman said. "I just want to protect access to the water for future generations of people."

A former resident of one of four officers' houses at Hobsonville Point said she's glad to see them restored.

Built in the 1930s, the houses sit on freehold waterfront sections of more than 1000 square metres each.

Disappointment community 'shut out' of large housing development on Auckland's North Shore

A community advocacy group says the community affected by a proposed large-scale housing development on Auckland's North Shore has been shut out of the process.
Iwi Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei is planning to develop an 8.4 hectare block of land in Hillary Crescent in Belmont, on the Devonport Peninsula, in the New Year.
The land, known as the Hillary Block, is a Special Housing Area. The proposal would see the developers knock down 82 existing houses to make way for 334 new homes.
