Rest of Queensgate shopping centre to reopen

Stride Investment Management Ltd said on Wednesday it would reopen the balance of the Queensgate shopping centre in Lower Hutt on Thursday 6 April following completion of demolition of a portion of the carpark & its cinema complex.

The centre was closed for inspection after the Kaikoura earthquake in November and partially reopened 11 days later. It will be reclad and a ground-level carpark put in the place of the current demolition site. Some egress points will also change.

Stride Investment Management has previously announced it will rebuild the cinema complex. In the meantime, regional centre manager Jan Plummer said, the ground-level parking & cladding would be a medium-term solution.

“Shrink-wrapping the building to create protection from the elements will allow contractors to take their time in creating the best possible medium-term design aesthetic, with the intention being that the shrink wrap will still be in place at the time of reopening to allow this work to continue.”

Ms Plummer said retailers whose premises remained closed because of the adjacent demolition would be given a confirmed date to access their stores in the next week.

Queensgate is owned by the Diversified NZ Property Trust.

Chows revert from hotel to office upgrade for old Colonial Motors building

NZX-listed property company Chow Group Ltd’s management company, CGML Ltd, said yesterday it had axed plans for a 230-room hotel conversion of its century-old 89 Courtenay Place tower in Wellington and, instead, would upgrade it for office use.

Director Michael Chow said the 9-storey 8720m² building would be upgraded to 88% of new building standard, making it one of the highest seismically rated office buildings in the Te Aro district of Wellington.

Mr Chow said the refurbishment would be a multi-million dollar exercise, but didn’t give a precise figure.

The former Colonial Motor Co Ltd building was erected in 1922, with changes to its Courtenay Place façade since then.

Mr Chow said refurbishment would start this month, and phased completion would start happening within 3 months.

The building has 950m² floorplates, some with character ceilings, and it’s best known for its expanse of windows. It has 70 secure onsite parking spaces, accessible from York St.

Last year, the Chow brothers had planned to convert the commercial space into a 4-star 230-room deluxe hotel, but changed their minds after the November 2016 earthquakes, where retaining the commercial property was better aligned to the Chow Group’s business goals.

“An important consideration for businesses is the safety of buildings in the event of seismic activity. The structural integrity of 89 Courtenay Place was not affected by the November 2016 7.8 earthquake, meaning our existing tenants were undisturbed while much of the city came to an abrupt halt.

“As part of our refurbishment plans, we are taking steps to increase our new building standard rating from 71% to 88% and we anticipate high demand for these spaces, which have been offered for immediate lease.” he said.

Naming rights will also be available.

Shelly Bay joint venture rejection overturned

The Wellington Co Ltd (Ian Cassels & Caitlin Taylor) has decided to apply for resource consent for a $300 million mixed-used development at Shelly Bay, on the Miramar Peninsula in Wellington, before its joint venture with Taranaki Whanui is finalised.

The trust, Taranaki Whanui ki Te Upoko o Te Ika, also known as the Port Nicholson Block Settlement Trust, is the landowner after buying Shelly Bay from the Government in 2009. It forms about 60% of the trust’s portfolio.

Shelly Bay was a Defence Force base for over 100 years, but the Air Force stopped using it in 1995.

Iwi members rejected the proposal last year but the trust said this week they’d now approved it.

Mr Cassels said his company was discussing with Wellington City Council the possibility of adding adjacent land to the masterplan area. At the moment the proposed development includes 300 houses in a variety of designs, a boutique hotel and a restaurant. 4 heritage buildings are targeted for a range of uses, including hospitality, short-term stay accommodation and commercial mixed use.

6400m² of public open space and a ferry connection to the cbd are features of the proposal.

Wayne Mulligan, elected to chair the trust board late last year, said Shelly Bay in its present state provided very poor returns and constrained the trust’s development & growth.

Auckland port company starts work on hub near Hamilton

Ports of Auckland Ltd has started construction of a 33ha inland port at Horotiu, just north of Hamilton.

It’s awarded a contract to Fulton Hogan Ltd to undertake earthworks to level the site. Work will continue through the summer, and construction is expected to start in early 2017 of a new road-over-rail bridge to establish a connection to the existing road network.

The port company said in a release: “The freight hub (or inland port) is ideally located in the heart of the ‘golden triangle’, New Zealand’s fastest growing region. It has excellent rail & road connections to New Zealand’s 2 largest ports, the lower North Island, and 3 of the country’s 5 largest cities. The Waikato freight hub will be connected by rail to our existing hubs at Wiri, Mt Maunganui & Longburn, Manawatu.”

The first freight-handling facilities are expected to be in service by late 2017 or early 2018, once road & rail connections are built. Ports of Auckland said it had already had significant interest from cargo owners.

Ports of Auckland said it was building the hub with sustainability in mind, including features that enhance the local environment: “Over 4ha of the 33ha site will be planted with natives, providing habitat for long-tailed bats, copper skink, morepork/ruru & bellbird/korimako. Improvements to a stream on site may benefit indigenous freshwater species such as koura, long-fin eel & smelt. Where practical, the development will include solar power paired with energy storage to provide 24/7 renewable energy, and the hub will use LED lighting & other energy-efficient technology.”

The freight hub is expected to generate about 300 jobs directly and facilitate many thousands more by acting as an economic catalyst: “Ports of Auckland will work with Tainui & other community stakeholders to help ensure that local people benefit directly from the economic development taking place in their area.”
