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.

Building consents hit new highs in November

There were a record 48,522 new homes consented in the year ended November 2021, Stats NZ said today.

This was up 26 percent compared with the year ended November 2020.

“This November had 4,688 new homes consented, which is the highest number for any month on record,” construction statistics manager Michael Heslop said.

“The previous record was 4,490 in the month of August 2021.”

Multimillion dollar stormwater upgrade project to begin in Henderson

Henderson residents can look forward to improved water quality, reduced flooding and upgraded recreation areas and walkways as stage one of the Corban Reserve Stormwater Upgrade Project begins in January 2022.

The $26.8 million Auckland Council project will see the installation of a new 2.1m diameter stormwater pipeline from the Upper Waitaro Stream at Imperial Place, along Border Road, to the Opanuku Stream at Border Road Esplanade.

The project will also include daylighting a section of the Waitaro Stream within Murillo Reserve, while the reserve itself will also be upgraded with new paths, children’s play elements, park furniture, boardwalks, and a new pedestrian bridge over the daylighted stream.
