One apartment out of 6 sells, Sugartree bids fall short

Just one of the 6 apartments auctioned at Ray White City Apartments yesterday was sold under the hammer.

The one sale, of a unit in the Spencer on Byron in Takapuna where there are remediation expenses, followed a contest between 4 bidders.

There were also multiple bidders for 2 units in stage 2 of the Sugartree development at the top of Nelson St, Centro, on the western edge of the cbd, where off-the-plan buyers took ownership last month. However, bidding on both petered out short of the reserve.

7 of 19 intensive homes sell at Barfoot auctions

7 sold at Barfoot & Thompson’s city office auction sessions on Wednesday & Thursday out of 19 intensive living units listed below, which include apartments in both the cbd & suburbia, traditional brick & tile units, some terraces & townhouses and, from the Wednesday afternoon session, some cross-leased properties.

The properties listed below are all intensive in some form, so exclude standalone homes (unless they’re on a cross-lease).

A regular feature of the market is the appearance of properties at various stages of leaky building remediation, and 2 fit that description here.

Every agency handling apartments also has a supply of units in the brand-new Sugartree development’s second stage, Centro, to offer. Ray White City Apartments had 2 yesterday and Barfoots had one – all passed in.

The auction rooms have mostly been quiet, and the distinguishing feature has been the high proportion of the offering which attracted no bid – 6 of those listed here – despite, in some cases, bidders registering.

Unlock Avondale project gets go-ahead, Takapuna carpark decision deferred

Auckland Council’s planning committee approved the over-arching plan for regeneration of Avondale yesterday.

The Unlock Avondale high level project plan will be delivered by the city’s urban regeneration agency, Panuku Development Auckland.

Whau Local Board chair Tracy Mulholland said the plan built on work completed by the local board & community groups: “It will drive momentum for change in the area, with a focus on the town centre. The regeneration of Avondale will see current & future residents enjoying new open spaces and a purpose-built community facility, including a new library that will serve its needs.”

Ward councillor Ross Clow said the regeneration of Avondale was long overdue: “This plan is important to drive the development of quality residential neighbourhoods and to help meet Auckland’s growing demand for affordable homes. It will also address the issues arising from population growth in Avondale & the wider area.”

And Panuku chief operating officer David Rankin said a number of key moves would enable the vision for Avondale: “Panuku will work closely with the local board & community to implement a retail strategy that attracts new businesses, increasing diversity of products & services.
“The train station, upgraded bus network & new cycleways offer great transport options, and we will continue to strengthen connections between these activity hubs & the town.

“A focus for the regeneration of Avondale is working with developers to build quality residential neighbourhoods that offer a mix of housing types, including terraces & apartments. A number of significant developments are already underway in the area.”

Ockham Residential is due to complete the construction of 72 new one- to 3-bedroom apartments at 24-26 Racecourse Parade in March 2018. Through a partnership with the NZ Housing Foundation, 33 new homes are near completion on Trent St, including 21 affordable homes.

Takapuna carpark decision deferred

In other business yesterday, the council committee deferred its decision on a hearing panel recommendation to change the use of the carpark at 40 Anzac St, Takapuna, to one that enables a mix of uses.

The deferral is to allow Panuku to consult further with the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board on how this process can be progressed. It will report back to the planning committee by next March.
