Kiwi Property plans new town centre next to Stevenson’s Drury development

Kiwi Property Group Ltd has bought some of 51.3ha at Drury, with agreements to secure the balance, to create a new town centre next to Stevenson Group Ltd’s mostly industrial 360ha development site.

The 3 greenfield sites are next to the junction of the Southern Motorway, Great South Rd and the North Island main trunk railway line, 35km south of Auckland’s city centre.

Kiwi chief executive Chris Gudgeon said in a release today the company had acquired some of the land, and had secured agreements to acquire more, as a strategic long-term holding to capitalise on Auckland’s continuing population growth.

“Our vision is to develop a town centre to complement the existing Drury town centre, which would be staged over the next 20 years to coincide with predicted population growth, household formation & employment growth in South Auckland.

“We will work with Auckland Council & infrastructure providers to secure a town centre zoning providing for commercial & retail uses integrated with high, medium & low density housing – all within walking distance of an integrated public transport node.”

Mr Gudgeon said the acquisition price for 2 of the land parcels, totalling 42.7ha, was $39.8 million. He said Kiwi had secured the third parcel of 8.6ha via a right of first refusal, with the purchase price to be determined with reference to the market when the right is exercised.

Overseas Investment Office approval is required in relation to the acquisition of 30.6ha.
Mr Gudgeon said it was an exciting opportunity for Kiwi: “Intensification at key transport nodes and masterplanned town centre developments are going to be a big part of our future under the Auckland unitary plan.

“Drury is already a highly accessible location, at the junction of the Southern Motorway, Great South Rd & the North Island main trunk railway line. Transport links to this area are only going to get better, with Auckland Transport’s plans for the construction of the Mill Rd southern arterial route, electrification of rail through to Pukekohe and the opportunity to construct a railway station adjacent to the town centre.”

The land’s current zoning under the unitary plan is future urban.

Mr Gudgeon said Kiwi’s plans for the amalgamated sites would be complementary to Stevenson’s adjacent development.

Work starts on 3 striking special housing area projects

Activity on 3 projects signalled progress – beyond signing up for land use – on providing supply to meet the acute housing shortage in Auckland.

All 3 have striking features:

  • The last, Auranga at Drury, where Building & Housing Minister Nick Smith turned the first sod on Friday (pictured above), is a very large & private project to build 1350 homes on 84.6ha in a mix of standalones, apartments, duplexes & terraces
  • The second is a 100-home development in New North Rd, Mt Albert, where Dr Smith signed an agreement under the Government’s Crown land housing programme on Wednesday with Marutuahu Ropu & Ockham Residential Ltd, and
  • The first, also under the Crown land housing programme, is a 196-home project on Moire Rd, Massey East, where Fletcher Residential Ltd & its partner, Ngati Whatua Orakei, blessed the site and turned the first sod to pave the way for earthworks to start in early November.

Moire Rd

On Moire Rd, 30% of the homes (59 of them), will be made available for social housing. Community housing providers will have first option to buy them and, if not taken up, they will be available to first-homebuyers.

The staged development will be a mix of detached single-storey dwellings, terraces & duplexes. The first homes are scheduled to be completed by the end of August 2017 and the whole development completed by mid-2019.

The site had been held by the Ministry of Education for a new school but became surplus to its requirements when Hobsonville Point Secondary School was built instead.

It was bought by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment in November 2015 and offered to Tamaki Makaurau LP in January, but this wasn’t taken up. Fletcher Residential was offered the site in April as the most highly ranked member of the development panel, and heads of agreement reached in June. Resource consents have since been granted for the subdivision & earthworks.

Dr Smith said: “This project will provide nearly 200 homes in a part of Auckland where housing demand is strongest. The Government is using its ownership of the land to require a pace of construction and a mixed development with a significant portion of social housing.”

Mt Albert

Dr Smith said the agreement with Marutuahu Ropu & Ockham Residential would result in a 100-home development with an average house price of $573,000, 8km from Auckland’s city centre.

The Marutuahu iwi has led the project and it’s the first development under the housing protocol between the Crown & the Tamaki Collective.

“This site was originally owned by the NZ Transport Agency as part of the Waterview roading development and was identified last year as a candidate for the Crown land housing programme. The development opportunity was optimised by purchasing earlier this year an adjacent section which was privately owned,” Dr Smith said.

“The key to more affordable housing close to Auckland city is greater density & smart design. The special housing area status granted earlier this year enables 100 homes on the site, rather than 24 under the old planning rules.

“Ockham has proven experience in developing innovative, high quality & affordable housing with a focus on 3- & 4-level character apartments. Marutuahu Ropu is an important partner and, through the Tamaki Collective, helped achieve the successful housing development at Waimahia at Weymouth.”

Following the heads of agreement signed on Wednesday, a detailed development agreement is expected to be concluded in December. It’s anticipated construction will begin on the first stage in July 2017, with the first dwellings due to be completed by May 2018. The balance will be completed over 2018-19.

Under the Crown land housing programme, the Government is using its ownership to help facilitate an increase in the supply & affordability of housing. It receives deferred settlement for the land but places requirements on development to occur at pace, and for the homes to be constructed at the more affordable end of the housing market.

“The Government is step by step, development by development, resolving Auckland’s housing challenges.”


The Auranga masterplan at Drury.

The Auranga masterplan at Drury.

The start of works at the Auranga special housing areas on Bremner Rd, Drury, follows a rapid course from approval in Auckland Council’s tranches 6 & 9 in August 2015 & February 2016, through plan change & subdivision consent.

Auranga managing director Charles Ma said this demonstrated how the Government, council, utility providers & private developers could work together to speed up the supply of good quality housing in Auckland: “I am immensely proud that everyone has worked so hard & well together. This resulted in our application to rezone the greenfields site for residential development being unanimously supported by submitters, and has enabled work to start in extremely quick time for a project of this scale.”

Auranga, meaning ‘a life force that sets progress in motion’, will provide 1350 homes, over 200 of them in the affordable category, which is 50% more than required under the special housing area provisions.
Mr Ma dispelled the notion that it was just about pumping out houses: “It is way more than just bricks & mortar. Auranga is about people, community & providing the foundations for good living. Often developments try to create a sense of community, but end up being just rows of houses with no heart & little atmosphere.

“I love timeless, elegant aesthetics & beautiful outdoor spaces. Auranga will be a celebration of traditional architecture & visually stunning surroundings that will encourage people to connect. I want to bring back community values like knowing everyone in your street and knowing your kids are safe to play freely around the neighbourhood.”

Auranga will include a network of walkways, boardwalks, bridges & cyclepaths, a jetty so people can enjoy the water, a village square & shops, a playground and dedicated dog exercise area.

Work set to start after fast approval for Auranga special housing area at Drury

Commissioners have approved the special housing area & qualifying development for 84.6ha at Bremner Rd, Drury, intended to yield 1350 new homes & a village centre.

It’s taken just over a year from promulgation of the bulk of the land as a special housing area to a hearing at the end of July and a decision a fortnight later, and the work on site is also expected to be quick. Earthworks for the first stage of the subdivision, called Auranga, are likely to start this season, for completion of the first homes by the end of 2017. Stage 1 at 207 Bremner Rd will have 51 residential lots for 51 homes on 4.5ha.

All submissions received by the panel – Barry Kaye (chair), Kitt Littlejohn & Murray Kay – supported the application by Karaka & Drury Ltd (Charles Ma), and it took just 22 working days from submissions closing to approve, making it one of the fastest plan changes in New Zealand’s history.

This efficiency has been attributed to extensive consultation with landowners & utility providers, and working with the council to achieve mutually acceptable solutions for development control rules, housing affordability & staging.

Other agreements between the developer, council & government also addressed funding of infrastructure, including new wastewater & water trunk mains, pump stations, a substantial upgrade to Bremner Rd with shared paths & dedicated cycleways, and a new pedestrian bridge across the Ngakaroa Stream next to the existing Bremner Rd bridge.

The first 68ha of the special housing area was approved in August 2015, as part of Auckland Council’s tranche 6, the balance in February in tranche 9. The private plan change, now operative, has rezoned the land within Auckland’s extended metropolitan urban limit for urban residential development. The development’s name, Auranga, means “a life force that sets progress in motion”.

The site is just north of Stevenson Group Ltd’s 361ha Drury South industrial subdivision & associated extension of the metropolitan urban limit, given approval in 2014. Stevenson Group’s private plan change will turn the 361ha of rural & quarry land over to a mix of industrial & business development.

Stevenson’s application for a special housing area plan variation & qualifying developments, at 49 Harrison Rd & various adjacent sites in Drury, goes to a hearing at the end of next week.

High affordable ratio

Auckland mayor Len Brown commended Mr Ma’s undertaking last year to build at least 150 affordable homes, or 15% of the total project’s original target minimum 1000 homes. The council requires a 10% affordable housing provision in special housing areas. However, Mr Ma has now lifted the target to at least 200 homes in the affordable category, and said marketing channels & processes would be in place to ensure those eligible have access to them.

Those homes will form part of a balanced mix of housing densities for residents at all stages of life. Mr Ma said: “The Auranga team has spent 2½ years planning a place that will provide much-needed quality homes. The development will be a place where people can enjoy the water, generous open spaces, great facilities & a real sense of community.”

High standards of amenity will include easy pedestrian access to local facilities, including the sports ground’s boardwalks, bridges & paths along natural waterways & the estuary; a jetty; cycleways & footpaths; a playground & dog exercise area. The interconnected street network have been calculated to reduce the vehicle kilometres travelled per household by up to 30%.

80% job self-sufficiency possible

Mr Ma believes the expansion of employment nodes at the airport, Manukau, Pukekohe, Papakura & Takanini as well as Drury South will mean more local jobs and potentially a higher employment performance than anywhere else in Auckland: “Our analysis shows the expansion of job opportunities at Drury with the proposed Drury South business park could achieve employment levels of over 80% self-sufficiency, meaning at least 4 in every 5 jobs will be in the local area. This will result in residents not necessarily having to work in the cbd and less associated congestion on the motorway, which is a remarkable level of sustainability that exceeds many other parts of urban Auckland.”

2 large special housing areas for Franklin

The latest 2 Auckland special housing areas are both in Franklin and both large – 87ha on McLarin Rd, Glenbrook, providing for 800 homes, and 68ha on Bremner Rd, Drury, for at least 1000 homes.

Building & Housing Minister Nick Smith said when he & mayor Len Brown announced the areas yesterday that he was encouraged that Auckland Council “is continuing to advance greenfield sites for special housing area status. This is welcome progress, in both scale & momentum, to help address Auckland’s issues of housing supply & affordability”.

The Drury area is just north of Stevenson Group Ltd’s 361ha Drury South industrial subdivision & associated extension of the metropolitan urban limit, given approval last year. Stevenson Group’s private plan change will turn the 361ha of rural & quarry land over to a mix of industrial & business development.

Industrial development is also being considered at Glenbrook, where 1200ha is available next to the steel mill.

Thee special housing areas take the number in Auckland to 86, with a combined potential for 45,000 homes.

Mr Brown said both housing sites were near existing amenities such as halls, reserves & education centres, “and we are confident that the proposed housing developments at these sites can be well serviced by existing or planned water, waste & roading infrastructure.

“I also commend the undertaking from the developer to build at least 150 affordable homes at Bremner Rd – or 15% of the total project. This is above the 10% affordable housing provision which is required in the special housing area by the council.”

In addition to the new Franklin housing areas, a 5.2ha extension to a 29ha special housing area on Fred Taylor Drive, Westgate, has been approved.

The Drury development, by Karaka & Drury Ltd, will yield 1000-1500 new homes over 7-9 years, with the first homes ready for occupation by the end of 2017. The first stage will have about 150 lots. The land is rural, but zoned future urban under the proposed Auckland unitary plan.

The Glenbrook development by Kahawai Point Ltd (Tahuna Minhinnick) will provide a mix of housing types, including 2-bedroom duplexes & 3-5 bedroom homes. The first homes in the 200-lot first stage are expected to be completed by the end of next year. The council’s housing project office says Kahawai Point Ltd has been working closely with mana whenua and has incorporated iwi housing concepts into the masterplan.
