New 800-home subdivision would create satellite town in North Canterbury

A developer wants to create sections for over 2000 residents in a project which would turn a small rural settlement into a satellite town of Christchurch.

The subdivision is proposed for a 156-hectare site at Ohoka in North Canterbury. It would include 800 new houses plus shops, a public square, and a school or retirement village.

Christchurch developer the Carter Group has applied to the Waimakariri District Council to have its rural land rezoned so it can build the subdivision.

Auckland City Mission's new home

A one-stop shop for health and social services for the city's most vulnerable people, the purpose-built, nine-storey building has a health centre, a pharmacy, a community dining room, specialist detox services and apartments.

Auckland City Missioner Helen Robinson says HomeGround is the realisation of a long-held dream.

"We can begin to do what we have longed to do, in the manner in which we have longed to do it, with the resources to support us," she says.

"HomeGround makes so much more possible, we can do more and better."

Billionaire planning New Zealand's tallest building blames city rail link and Covid for delays

A billionaire who plans to build the country's tallest tower building in Auckland's CBD has been granted a last-minute eight-year extension after blaming the city rail link and Covid for protracted delays.

Shanghai business magnate Furu Ding owns a chain of high-end hotels in China and Singapore and has considerable land holdings and commercial interests in New Zealand.

He bought a massive 4417sq m vacant site at 106 Albert St for $53 million in 2012. In 2017 the Overseas Investment Office (OIO) granted Ding consent to build a $350m five-star Ritz Carlton hotel and 52-storey tower on the site.
