Quay Park reclaimed for inner city living

Quay Park reclaimed for inner city living

A new residential development has been approved south of the former ‘oriental markets’ building, on reclaimed land previously used for railway purposes.

As part of the Quay Park redevelopment, Auckland City Council’s Regulatory and Fixtures Sub Committee has granted consent to Redwood Group for the construction of a 17 level building comprising 126 residential apartments at 2-30 Beach Road.

“The proposed residential development is another example of the growth in residential activity in the central city in close proximity to the proposed rejuvenation associated with the Britomart Precinct re-development,” says Mark Vinall, central area planning manager.

A condition of the consent is the allowance for an easement or walkway between the proposed Auckland City SuperDome through to Britomart Place. The development also includes a proposed plaza area providing a strong open space linkage to Britomart.

With consent already granted for a supermarket fronting onto Quay Street, the total site of the old oriental market will eventually be redeveloped.

The committee imposed conditions in regard to acoustic controls.

“New residents will be obviously aware that an operating port is opposite the site and will expect that the noise levels will not be the same as a residential suburb, nevertheless Ports of Auckland have raised the issue of reversed sensitivity,” says Councillor Juliet Yates, sub committee chairperson. Conditions are the same as for other residential developments in Quay Park.
