Council starts public process for city centre & waterfront planning refresh, plus 3 subdivision plan changes

Auckland Council’s planning committee agreed yesterday to a refresh programme for the city centre & waterfront, but it will be 10 months before the final version of it is decided.

It’s also complicated by requirements evolving for the America’s Cup yachting contest to be held in Auckland in 2019, and where the estimated 30,000m² of land for the bases plus water spaces for the yachts might go.

The large programme of works for city centre & waterfront would be implemented under a review of the original central business district & waterfront plans completed in 2012.

But first the councillors & Independent Maori Statutory Board members have to put their money caps on, in their roles as the finance & performance committee, to prioritise works. That committee’s scheduled to meet (twice) in a fortnight.

And then the whole shebang has to go out to public consultation early next year as part of the council’s long-term plan review, returning to the council for signoff just before the start of the new financial year on 1 July 2018.

3 plan changes & a tidy-up under the new unitary plan

A second novelty yesterday came in the form of 4 plan changes – the first batch under the super-city’s unitary plan, which combines an updated composite of all the district plans of the councils 7 territorial predecessors and also includes an updated regional policy statement.

The unitary plan is still not fully operative, with parts of it before the courts. 2 of the proposed changes to it before the committee yesterday were private – from Karaka & Drury Ltd (Charles Ma) to extend its Auranga subdivision at Drury, and from Fletcher Residential Ltd, recognising an agreement with opponents of the company’s Three Kings quarry residential development.

The other 2 plan changes were brought by the council, one for its rezoning of land at Whenuapai from future urban so development can start on part of it over the next 4 years, with later stages set for development starting in 2028.

The last change, from the council, is to correct technical errors & anomalies discovered in the unitary plan.

  • You can check the detail in the refresh and the plan change proposals through the links below. I’ll roll out articles on each of them, and yesterday’s debate, over the next few hours.

Grand downtown & waterfront plans raise the question: The money?

Some grand plans to advance Auckland Council’s 5-year-old waterfront & city centre plans will go to the council’s planning committee on Tuesday.

Image above: A Wynyard Quarter “regional destination park” is proposed at the outer point where the idea of an iconic structure was early tossed around.

2 words are central to the planning review: “Whose money?”

Take these 4 statements sprinkled through the report to the committee:

  • “The proposed funding & delivery scenarios are to be interrogated & tested during the long-term plan process. Priority projects will be supported by business cases, including a total value analysis. Once decisions have been made, they will be incorporated into the long-term plan public consultation.”
  • “For Wynyard Quarter, key drivers for the refresh include the need to create more feasible development packages, in order that returns from private development can contribute to the costs of public infrastructure & open space.”
  • “A realignment of the Wynyard Point park… delivering more rational development sites for private investment.”
  • “Funding is in place for the Auckland Transport bus projects but a realignment of or addition to budgets for other projects will be required.”

Those financial points are crucial to how streets around the central city and the waterfront itself are to offer better use, and how public transport will fit, but they aren’t the priority.

What is priority is to unleash a feast of ideas. What ought to be priority is a co-ordinated view of how these ideas can be brought forward practically, and funded.

Weighing on the offer are these:

  • The future of the port’s 2 functions, cruise & cargo
  • Hosting of the America’s Cup and hosting of the APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation) meeting, both in 2021.

Devising a programme and working out the requirements for the yachting event make sense because it’s a mega-dollar occasion from which Auckland stands to profit enormously. The visit of the foreign politicians is one the city ought to be able to take in its stride.

The next round of publicly discussing the council’s future port study is scheduled for the planning committee’s October meeting. Again, money is the key feature – firstly, what Auckland stands to lose by sending the freight business out of town; secondly, what it might gain by having a new port conveniently nearby; thirdly, how a cruise sector perhaps treble the size it is now can be accommodated.

Down at ground level, the planning report touches on bus routes, pedestrian & cycle-friendly access between the city waterfront & Wynyard Quarter, and pedestrian boulevarding the city-centre few blocks of Quay St (though it’s not spelled out quite so plainly).

But for all the focus on improving public transport access, the report suggestions emanating from Auckland Transport would have isthmus bus commuters at the bottom of town walking about 3 blocks further than they do now to reach their stop. Without too much cover from the elements.

The whole committee series of workshops has been conducted behind closed doors, and there is no apparent reason for that, other than the belief that participants in a discussion should be free to speak their minds without the rest of the world hearing, without statements being taken out of context, and – most importantly, but usually knocked back to least important – without the public being taken on the discussion journey until something concrete is laid out.

What is mapped out is the use of the public realm – affecting many private interests – and if discussion is public there’s a good chance somebody outside the forum will add an idea that hadn’t been thought of.

Despite the freedom of all that private discussion, the answer to the crucial financial questions is not in the agenda. If the council runs to form, it will skirt the question and the uncertainty will remain.

The report’s authors were Senior Panuku project planning leader Joanna Smith, Panuku & Ateed cruise project manager John Smith and Auckland Transport city centre & rapid transport network initiatives manager Daniel Newcombe.

Plan changes on the way

Also on the agenda for the planning committee’s meeting on Tuesday are a number of plan changes for the Auranga development at Drury, from Fletcher Residential Ltd at 3 Kings, for Whenuapai and to correct technical errors & anomalies in the unitary plan, which is now largely operative.

Slow, but a 61% success rate at auctions

Image above: The Oxford on Mount St – one apartment sold, one passed in.

It took auctioneer Murray Smith 30 minutes & much twiddling of his thumbs this morning before he banged his hammer down for the sale of one apartment. Next up, there were 3 bidders and a sale ensued in a few minutes.

In 5 sessions this week, auctioneers at Barfoot & Thompson’s city office put through 41 residential properties, 16 of them which I categorise as intensive (apartments, townhouses, suburban units – I wasn’t at all sessions and don’t know if any others were cross-leased).

A year ago, that would have been the throughput on a Wednesday or Thursday morning, so volume is well down.

But the sales ratio under the hammer this week was strong – 25 sold out of 41 homes offered, a 61% success rate. For the intensives, 9 sold out of 16 offered, a 56% success rate.

Cotterill sees opportunity for NPT as tenants quit

Image above: The AA Centre on the corner of Albert & Victoria Sts in downtown Auckland, between the bungy jumps of the Royal International site & Sky Tower, and with works underway at the corner for the city rail link tunnel & station.

Listed property investor NPT Ltd has tenants leaving 2 of its 5 properties – one of them quitting 6 office floors – and the new board sees opportunity.

Bruce Cotterill.

New chair Bruce Cotterill was dying to tell shareholders about impending investment activity at the annual meeting in Auckland on Friday, but didn’t quite have everything in place to make the revelations.

“While we aren’t in a position to provide any detail at this time, we are working on a number of initiatives that we expect will deliver better returns to our shareholders and would set us on a clear path to growth. Although it is early days in our tenure as directors, this board has made rapid progress and shareholders may expect an update in the coming weeks as some of our initiatives come to fruition,” he said.

NPT has had a chequered history since its inception as the National Property Trust in 1994, but one thing about it hasn’t changed: it started small and has remained so, getting its portfolio over $200 million in value for a while but now down at $174 million.

Its change in prospects began last September when Augusta Capital Ltd bought 9.26% of its shares from the Accident Compensation Corp, then proceeded to make an offer for its management contract. In October, Augusta said it also wanted NPT to buy a portfolio of 3 unidentified properties valued at $329 million, and it wanted to help NPT grow its portfolio to improve returns.

This latter was odd, because Augusta had whittled down its own portfolio in favour of managing syndicates. NPT’s board baulked, and so began a struggle for control that cost NPT $2 million.

The loser, at a special shareholder meeting in April, was Kiwi Property Group Ltd, which also wanted NPT to buy properties – 2 assets valued at $230 million, the Majestic Centre in Wellington & North City Centre at Porirua, now on the market through an expressions of interest process.

Augusta won the fight for control after lifting its holding to 18.85% and the total  vote against Kiwi’s proposal was 54.85%.

Mr Cotterill was installed as independent chair; a recently appointed member of the old board, Carol Campbell, remained as an independent (and had her position confirmed at Friday’s meeting); and Augusta’s new chair, Paul Duffy, and another independent, Allen Bollard, were elected.

AA moving to Sale St

Mr Cotterill told shareholders AA Insurance had recently informed the company it intended to relocate to a new office building under construction by Mansons on Sale St in February 2018, although its lease on its 6 floors in the AA Centre – right above the Aotea station being constructed beneath its Albert-Victoria St windows – runs until June 2019.

Said Mr Cotterill: “This departure will provide us with a further opportunity for refurbishment & repositioning of the building in the Auckland City office leasing market. Leasing inquiry for the floors that are to become vacant is very strong and we expect to be able to lease them relatively quickly.”

He said NPT had been working on leasing the AA space for a couple of months: “We don’t have signatures on paper but we do have good inquiry.”

Print Place – repositioning or disposal?

In Christchurch, NPT’s property at 17 Print Place, Middleton, recently lost one of its 3 tenants and will lose another in December. On this, Mr Cotterill told shareholders the vacancy & shortening weighted average lease term had resulted in the value of the property easing. But again Mr Cotterill saw opportunity: “This vacancy may provide us with an opportunity to reposition the property.”

Mr Duffy said it was over-rented and had too much office space relative to its warehousing.

One shareholder questioned the board about NPT being an absentee landlord, but Mr Cotterill responded: “We agree with you, and we’ve appointed Colliers [as manager of its Christchurch properties]. They haven’t got any tenants yet because we only agreed to appoint them this morning.”

Mr Cotterill agreed with another shareholder that selling Print Place was also an option. He said the new board had 2 strategies to focus on – growing the portfolio, and repositioning what it already owned.

He cautioned that growth wouldn’t be easy: “We’re trying to rebuild when prices are at their peak. That’s not the easiest thing to do.”

He said the board recognised that “mum & dad” shareholders relied heavily on dividends and the board intended to maintain dividends at their present level. On Friday afternoon the board announced a 0.9c/share first-quarter cash dividend, carrying 0.1544c/share of imputation credits, and gave full-year guidance that total dividends would be at least the same as last year, 3.6c/share.

Again, Mr Cotterill presented the optimistic outlook: “This represents a conservative approach to 2018 financial year distributable profit while the board considers a number of options before it for NPT’s future direction. A further update can be expected on the board’s plans for NPT in the coming weeks.”

At the moment, NPT’s management remains internal – Kiwi’s proposal to buy it was defeated in April and Augusta’s proposal wasn’t put to that meeting, but Mr Cotterill said the outcome of the April meeting had raised interest in taking over the contract. One party had turned its talks into a proposal and the board was discussing the possibility with another: “There’s nothing concrete,” he said.
