22 December 2000
It was a true Christmas rush at the Auckland City Council this week:
- Commissioners appointed to deliberate on two apartment projects
- Questions on what more Auckland University has planned apart from the initial change around Alfred St
- An operator to take over Garry Groves’ Icon towers after individual buyers failed to take the project out
- A parking building for Quay Park and the green light for Symphony’s new Viaduct project on the New City Markets site
- A smaller scale of development at McDonald’s head office on Wellington St, lofts off K Rd, and the next stage of Redwood’s Eden Village.
To read the details, you need to subscribe — click the Subscribetab at top left. It costs $200 a year.
At the end of last week the council outlined the remaining items in dispute concerning the central area sectionof Auckland’s district plan — a long but worthwhile read.
Now we’re into summer and a holiday slowdown, but I expect to get several more stories on to the site over the holiday period. So don’t forget to bookmark The Bob Dey Property Reporton your home computer and enjoy the read on a rainy day.
Meanwhile, Merry Christmasand a Happy New Year.
Welcome to the Bob Dey Property Report,upgraded into a subscription site on 7 March 2000. This new website is primarily about property investment in Auckland, but is expanding to cover the activities of listed vehicles and syndicates.
Some international news and property links are in place on the External linkspage. This home page carries some headlines (see below).Subscribers will get more detail via the Members homepage and can visit the Report map to find full reports. That access costs $NZ200 a year -- click on the Subscribe tab.
What information will you get in these pages? It will include analysis of listed company performances and market news, syndication, transaction details and analysis of the physical property market’s various sectors, articles about neighbourhoods, people, resource consent matters, litigation...
It will keep you abreast of the economic environment for property investment, keep you informed about the enablers and the blocks -- financing, law, planning and value. And there will be scope for debate.
The whole site is ad-free,but you can make your way round the property industry, including real estate agencies, by using the External links. That service is outside the subscriber section and will be updated. If your address isn't there and should be, let me know. Comments?E-mail
