Regeneration of Civic Administration Building to begin

A significant piece of Auckland’s architectural history was given a new lease of life this week as the agreement between Auckland Council and private developer Civic Lane Limited to redevelop the central city Civic Administration Building (The CAB) and surrounding land into homes as part of the Civic Quarter mixed-use precinct was settled.

Mayor Phil Goff said: “This settlement means that an A category heritage building can be restored and refurbished by the private sector, saving ratepayers refurbishment costs of over $80 million. It will also deliver a thriving new area providing hotel and residential accommodation and an exciting new performing arts centre.”

Developer John Love of Civic Lane Limited said: “We’re looking forward to being able to provide new homes and a new community in such a wonderful location in central Auckland so close to everything, including theatres such as the Aotea Centre and the Auckland Town Hall, the Auckland Art Gallery, world-class shopping and dining, and of course the new CRL Aotea train station.

Fletcher Living homes in central Christchurch struggle to find buyers

After close to six months on the market, the first of the townhouses built by Fletcher Living in central Christchurch are struggling to sell.

Priced at between $1 million and $1.6m, RNZ understands as few as three of the 20 homes in the development have sold.

They were the first batch of 940 flats and townhouses promised by Fletcher Living to help achieve the ambitious goal of having 20,000 people living in central Christchurch by 2024.

Makeover planned for Greenslade Reserve

As part of the creation of the Awataha Greenway and the regeneration of Northcote Town Centre, Auckland Council is transforming Greenslade Reserve into a new recreational facility.

The transformation will include a playing field for rugby league and cricket, attractive recreational facilities from terraced seating to BBQ areas, a walking loop and a native planted urban wetland.  

“The transformation of Greenslade Reserve will provide our local residents with an awesome and improved shared space for sport, recreation and provide a new wetland in an urban environment,” says Councillor Richard Hills.
