The resource consent application to develop the infrastructure to host the 36th America’s Cup in Auckland has been publicly notified today.

 

Aucklanders are now able to provide their feedback by making a submission on plans to build the America’s Cup bases and village at Wynyard Basin.

 

You can have your say over the next 20 working days from 30 January to 28 February 2018.

The mayor and the minister won't talk to RNZ after a brief media flurry last week when they backed a new plan long-pursued by Mr Parker, leaving key questions unanswered.

 

Sounds like a bit of a dog's breakfast.

Another question is, why was ASB allowed to build their offices with no car-parks. sh*t, while we are at it, "Why was AirNZ allowed to build their offices so far from any airport?" or "Why was Fonterra allowed to build their office so far from a farm/factory?"

Basement parking was not a design option for the ASB site so I suppose that applies pretty much to the whole western reclamation redevelopment.
Look to the inclusion of private commercial parking buildings to address the demand.
Traffic at present is a disaster and just wait till the Cup is in full swing.

I think you'll find there is no provision for commercial parking buildings in the grand plan, it's all about pedestrian access, cycle ways, and the tram for public transport. The newer buildings are constrained by their resource consents on how many parks can be provisioned & it is a lot less than commercial buildings outside the area. When we moved in to our new building Auckland Transport provided a heap of material on how we could walk/run/ride to & from work and off to meetings etc & how wonderful this was. The Wilson's parking etc in the area now will go over time as development progresses.

 

The Fonterra/Datacom/Microsoft buildings all have underground carparking. I've heard the Sofitel carpark suffers from flooding​ although it is a lot closer to the water than the others.

Did some development in the Parnell Strand area for a client .
The best return on investment by far was a new build car park.
Washed it twice a year and the lights came on automatically.
No pesky tenants demanding fit out contributions, no earthquake remedial issues etc just a plain and simple cash machine.
Look to similar in the Western Reclamation.
You are right JK the further seaward you develop the costs of subterranean build do not stack up.
