Auckland adopts new future growth strategy

Auckland Council’s Planning, Environment and Parks Committee has today adopted a new strategy for how the city will grow and develop over the next 30 years, by 18 votes to 3.

With Auckland expected to grow by half a million more residents by 2053, the Future Development Strategy is the council’s high-level vision for making sure homes, jobs, and infrastructure are built in the right places, at the right time.

Auckland Mayor Wayne Brown has shown support for the direction taken in the new strategy.

Auckland Midtown construction schedule continues to build momentum while expanding scope of underground works

In a recently published update, the Auckland Council group continues to deliver positive momentum across the Midtown Regeneration Programme while building smarter across agencies.  

Work hours are being extended on-site in Victoria Street until the end of December in order to achieve the re-opening of Victoria Street for some traffic movement by the end of 2023, a key milestone in getting the city centre ready for the completion of the City Rail Link (CRL).

Work to expand the city centre’s critical wastewater infrastructure is set to begin early next year, carefully coordinated with street improvements. The new infrastructure will ensure more resilience on the network while enabling growth and capacity for the city’s future development.

'Miami meets Onehunga': Largest KiwiBuild block yet has a cafe and pool for first homebuyers

It’s going to be up to a newly-formed body corporate to set the rules around when and how often pool parties can be held in Auckland’s largest first home buyer apartment block, a developer says.

The newly minted Manaaki apartment complex with its pastel exteriors has been described as “Miami meets Onehunga”.

Marketed as the largest apartment complex to have ever been built outside the CBD, of its 210 dwellings, 72% have so far been sold to first homebuyers on the promise of a unique and communal lifestyle.
