“277" additions get the go-ahead

“277" additions get the go-ahead

A major redevelopment of the 277 Broadway shopping centre has been given the green light following council approval today.

The consortium ‘Auckland One Ltd’ will undertake an extension to the existing mall that will cover the block of land bounded by Broadway, Morrow St, Gillies Ave and Mortimer Pass.

“Approval was granted under stringent conditions that will make certain there will be no adverse effect on the surrounding area,” says Councillor Juliet Yates, Auckland City Council’s Regulatory and Fixtures Sub-Committee chairperson.

Some of these conditions relate to improving traffic flows in the area, upgrading pedestrian amenities and safety and liasing closely with the immediate neighbourhood, including a nearby school, so they are aware of significant construction events.

The new development’s approved design is in the character of the immediate environment and appropriate in scale and form to the surrounding area.

The development will incorporate the conversion of two existing internal levels of carparks, the extension of the centre’s retail area at ground and first floor level including new facades in Morrow St and Mortimer Pass and the addition of a seven level carpark.
