ex Elly 152 Posted October 11, 2021 Share Posted October 11, 2021 $300m Bayswater Marina scheme out for public notification - documents on council site Plans for the $300 million 121-apartment project at Bayswater Marina have today been publicly notified. Auckland Council's website now shows the details of the scheme for the North Shore land owned by Bayswater Marina Holdings, part of Simon and Paula Herbert's Empire Capital business. Application is being made for resource consent to redevelop the existing marina reclamation land with public open spaces, landscaping, apartments, terraced housing, commercial activities and parking in the Bayswater maritime precinct. The master plan, architectural plans for the apartments, landscape plans, a high analysis, geotechnical investigations, acoustic and transport assessments, a report on construction, stormwater outfalls, and engineering drawings are all now available to view. Plans posted today show courtyards in the middle of apartment blocks, but instead of being landscaped as they are in many other projects, these have car parks at their heart. Chris Darby, a North Shore councillor and planning committee chairman, said genuine community engagement was being sought from the developer. [...] Darby encouraged Herbert to visit the best waterfront developments overseas and said that Herbert had done that. Plans are for 94 terraced homes and 27 apartments in three buildings. Around 350 people could live on the site under the revised plan, the application says. Existing marina berthage areas will be untouched and associated car parking and marine-related commercial activities will be upgraded. The Bayswater Community Committee said last month it would undertake an online survey asking about the proposed development, what people value and what they want. https://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/300m-bayswater-marina-scheme-out-for-public-notification-documents-on-council-site/HRX2PHVHHB3MFOYHAVBZJJBIR4/ Quote Link to post Share on other sites
