Planning consent, 24 September 2002:
City eastern fringe, 1 Parliament St, Auckland City Council’s regulatory & fixtures sub-committee granted Multiplex Constructions NZ Ltd (headed by Shane Brealey) non-notified hearing & resource consent, increasing the number of units in the Brent Clode apartment building from 195 in the previous consent (granted in 2000) to 229.
An intervening application last year, not pursued, would have taken the number of apartments in the same envelope to 212.
The new proposal makes some adjustments reducing the impact on apartments in the Quest Darlinghurst apartment hotel building next door on Eden Crescent. That development always recognised the likelihood of a neighbour, with only small windows on the Clode side.
An earlier Clode proposal would have blocked those windows, but the new proposal reduces the solid podium wall on that half of the site from 9m to 1.5m and also shifts the tower. That will allow an outdoor lap pool & spa area on the Anzac Ave side, at the Eden Crescent ground level. There will also be a gym, and a basketball hoop, on that level.
The new tower will have 16 storeys above 4 basement levels containing 186 parks. The design has 10 units on ground level, 14 on level 1, 16 on each of levels 2-12, 14 on level 13 and 2 on level 15. A 3m verandah will be erected on the Anzac Ave frontage.
Multiplex took over construction & project management, extended to paying the bills, after soil subsided into the basement cavity in January, killing a workman.
