New homes and preserved heritage for New Lynn
Eke Panuku Development Auckland is delighted to announce that it has both secured a part of New Lynn’s rich history and enabled the development of new homes for the neighbourhood.
This comes after the successful sale, on behalf of Auckland Council, of 18 Totara Avenue, New Lynn to Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities for a mixed-used development.
The 2000m2 site has been of local interest for many years given the heritage status of the Oag’s Building located on the property. As part of the development agreement with Kāinga Ora, the facade of the Oag’s Building will be retained, forming part of the frontage of a proposed state-of-the-art, nine-storey, mixed-use building. Once complete, the development could include approximately 80 homes on the upper levels and commercial space on the ground floor, with a target completion date of mid to late 2025.
Marian Webb, Eke Panuku’s general manager of Assets & Delivery, welcomed the sale, which will provide much-needed additional housing in the New Lynn Merchant Quarter.
