Prime spot: former Taupō District Council building site sells to make way for four-star accommodation

The Taupō District Council has sold the site of its former headquarters on Taupō’s ‘golden mile’ but is keeping mum on how much the sale netted.

The 3600 square metre, prime lakefront section with million-dollar views straight down the lake to the Tongariro National Park, has been vacant since early 2018 when the council building was demolished following the detection of friable asbestos.

Current valuation puts the high density residential zoned property at around $4.4 million.

New homes consented reach record numbers in North Island

The annual number of new homes consented in the North Island was 29,310 in November 2020, the highest number since the regional series began in March 1991, Stats NZ said today.

Nationally, the number of new homes consented in the year to November 2020 was 38,624, up 4.2 percent from 2019. The national annual total is the highest since July 1974, when 38,904 new homes were consented.

“Auckland, Hawke’s Bay, and Taranaki had record levels of new homes consented in the November 2020 year. These consents are an intention to build, and most home construction is completed within a year or two after a consent is granted, though COVID-19 may have caused delays for some projects,” construction statistics manager Michael Heslop said.
