Queen Street to get a makeover as COVID-19 works replaced

Wide boardwalks, seating and native plants in planter boxes will soon replace the plastic sticks and temporary footpaths on Queen Street between Customs Street and Shortland Street.

New plans released by Auckland Council today detail the removal of the emergency COVID-19 works in the area and the creation of a pocket park on the corner of Queen Street and Fort Street to add greenery and provide a pleasant space for people to linger.

Major new inner-city build planned for Hamilton

A plan to turn a makeshift inner-city car park into a striking business precinct is being heralded as further evidence of Hamilton’s transformation into an attractive, modern city.

Stark Property has released the first concept images of Tūāpapa – a major three-staged development planned for the corner of Ward and Tristram streets.

Work on the complex’s first stage – a six-storey office building named Mahi – is due to start later this year. A garden terrace will be used to link the office tower to the complex’s second and third buildings.
